Who wouldn’t want to buy themselves a grand home by posh Pacific Palisades Riviera in L.A.’s Westside! And lucking out in this department is veteran film director Joe Russo who recently purchased a home in the said locality for $21 million. Yes, that’s right!
Russo’s ownership came at $1.2 million over the asking price
Originally listed for $19.8 million, the home had received multiple offers and was won over by Russo and his longtime wife Alicia by paying $1.2 million over the original asking price. It is designed by architect Ken Ungar in association with the Story Co. development team and features several luxe amenities.
The home boasts a total of six bedrooms and 10 baths in a little more than 9,000 square feet of three-level living space. It comprises high ceilings, herringbone wood floors, and designer lighting and also comes with a handy elevator. Yes, you read that right!
Swanky interiors throughout the property
The luxurious home features stylish interiors throughout with walls of glass that offer panoramic views of the lush greenery around. Further, its four bedrooms are located upstairs with a master retreat that is complete with a fireplace, French doors, two walk-in closets, a luxe bath equipped with dual vanities, a dressing area, a soaking tub, and a steam shower.
Other spaces include a spacious recreational room hosting a wet bar and temperature-controlled wine room on the lower level, an office lined with bookshelves, a fireside family room, and a gourmet kitchen outfitted with an eat-in island, high-end Wolf appliances, a breakfast nook, and butler’s pantry.
Indoor amenities complimented with plush outdoors
While the white stucco, wood, and brick structure packs in quite a bit inside, its glamour spills on the outside too. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen set up, and an infinity-edge pool and spa with a Baja shelf in the backyard.
On one side of it lies an open-air cabana sporting a lounging area warmed by a fireplace with a trellised al fresco dining area on the other. This is further complimented by a sprawling grassy lawn ideal for Bocce ball and more.
Well, talk about a luxe home!
