In a stunning display of luxury real estate, the fashion industry power couple Mel and Susan Geliebter have listed their custom-built Beverly Hills estate for a staggering US$47.5 million.
Acquired in the late 1990s for US$7.5 million, the Geliebters, renowned for founding and then selling jeans manufacturer RSV Sport, transformed the three-acre mountainside lot into a breathtaking Tuscan-style villa.
Their vision, brought to life with the help of architect Robert Sinclair, resulted in a sprawling 1607sq m residence that exudes grandeur and bespoke elegance.
Beyond its gated entrance and circular motorcourt, complete with a tiered fountain, the villa boasts five bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a host of luxurious amenities.
Intricate details crafted by Italian and English artisans adorn the residence, reflecting the couple’s extensive European travels.
The grandeur of the estate is immediately apparent upon entering through the double doors.
Visitors are greeted by a soaring foyer, featuring a sculpted walnut ceiling and a striking curving staircase.
The great room, with its coffered ceiling and vintage French fireplace, epitomises the villa’s opulence, as does the 20-seat dining room, embellished with hand-painted walls.
Notably, the property includes a wood-panelled office, a movie theater, and a bar/lounge area.
The master retreat, located upstairs, offers dual sitting rooms, walk-in closets, and luxurious bathrooms.
The residence also houses a subterranean level featuring a 3000-bottle wine cellar and a fireside dining room.
The outdoor space is equally impressive, with palm trees, pathways, and numerous spots for alfresco entertaining, including a pool with a gym-equipped pool house.
