Late and Still Colorful Ricardo Legorreta House Asking $16 Million in Beverly Hills

New, 15 comments

Where have we seen that purple before? Oh yes, this house was designed by Mexican Modernist architect and 1990s Pershing Square remodeler Ricardo Legorreta. One of Legorreta's last commissions before his death in 2012, the house shows off the architect's signature elements: "thick protective walls," spacious courtyards (an indoor one here), and striking colors, as the LA Times noted in its obituary for the architect. Entering the 10,000-square-foot house through the giant, very solid-looking front door, visitors are received in an interior courtyard with a fountain and topped with a skylight.

The main floor of the house holds the master suite (with private patio), common spaces like the den, a theater, a 13,000-bottle wine cellar, and library with built-in bookcases. The first floor opens onto "an outdoor covered living room with fireplace." Another bedroom and the gym are upstairs. There's also a pool and a detached space for guests with its own kitchenette. Sited on around a half-acre, the estate is asking $15.95 million.
