Former Formula 1 champion Jenson Button and his wife Brittny, an interior designer, have listed their luxurious Los Angeles-area mansion for sale, priced just shy of US$8 million.
This marks the latest of their real estate ventures, following their profitable dealings in Palm Springs and Santa Monica, where they netted a total of $11.4 million.
The Spanish-style residence, dubbed ‘Casa Encanto’ (charming house), was acquired by the Buttons in winter 2021 for US$3.7 million, according to the Robb Report.
Located in the serene mountains between Malibu and Calabasas, the property has undergone an extensive remodel under Brittny’s direction through Button Atelier design studio.
The renovation introduced a minimalist and airy design palette, featuring tones of fawn, tan, chocolate, cream, and white, accented by classic fluted columns and an abundance of natural light.
Brittny aimed to create “an airy atmosphere” to offer “a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles”.
Nestled within a private 2.3-acre land parcel off Mulholland Highway, the property is accessed via a gated driveway.
The exterior boasts a creamy stucco and terracotta-roof structure, a spacious motorcourt, an enclosed fountain-clad courtyard, and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
Inside, the mansion sprawls over 771sq m, featuring six bedrooms and eight bathrooms across two levels.
Standout amenities include a lounge and bar area, a grand living room with a stone fireplace, a formal dining room, and a sleek kitchen equipped with marble countertops, dual islands, high-end appliances, and a cozy breakfast nook with a fireplace.
The master suite is a luxurious retreat offering a fireside sitting area, walk-in closet, and a spa-like bathroom with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub, and a large shower.
The outdoor space is equally impressive, with park-like grounds featuring a swimming pool encased in a sundeck, a barbecue area, and multiple spots for outdoor entertainment.
A large lawn suitable for events, a detached gym, and a two-car garage complete this exquisite property.
