Fashion designer Christian Audigier, famous for popularizing the Ed Hardy and Von Dutch clothing lines, died last year, and according to the listing agent this Spanish-style in Hancock Park is one of five Los Angeles-area homes he left behind.
Given Audigier’s design-style—meaning no disrespect to his memory, the Frenchman was not exactly known for tasteful restraint—it’s a bit of a surprise to see that the 1924 home is, well, pretty pleasant-looking.
Sure, there are a few over-the-top features, like a wrought iron gate emblazoned with Audigier’s initials and a button that instructs thirsty guests to "ring for champagne." But overall, this is just a nice old house in a nice old neighborhood.
Features of the four-bedroom, 2,131-square-foot home include hardwood floors, a newly renovated kitchen, and custom built-ins in the dining room and master bedroom. The back area features a swimming pool and several sitting areas including a large cabana complete with fireplace. Asking price is $1.679 million.
