Sushi Chef Nobu Matsuhisa Selling in Beverly Hills, Buying Crazy Hugh Newell Jacobsen in Bel Air

New, 15 comments

Sushi kingpin Nobu Matsuhisa (he owns the Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants, duh) has revealed some refined real estate tastes. He and his wife are off-loading a relatively standard updated mid-century in Beverly Hills, but they're replacing it with a very strange Hugh Newell Jacobsen-designed house in Bel Air (which they got for a huge discount). First to Bev Hills, where the couple is selling a 1969 four-bedroom that they bought in 1994 for $1 million, according to the Real Estalker. It comes with four bathrooms, a circular living room, a pool, a wine cellar, an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, a tatami room, and a sushi prep kitchen with counter. Asking price is $3.599 million.

And now over to Bel Air, where RE hears the Matsuhisas dropped a wad on a seriously pointy Hugh Newell Jacobsen house commissioned by Cleon and Betty Knapp, who used to own Architectural Digest. They listed the house way back in May 2011 for $23.95 million and sold it in June for $15.625 million.
