Pharrell Williams sells his Californian pad

Hip-hop superstar Pharrell Williams has sold his luxury Hollywood Hills home to a tech millionaire for US$9.2 million.

According to The Dirt, Williams purchased the 1.5 acre architecturally designed residence for $7.1 million in 2015 and had initially listed the property for sale at US$12 million.

The property boasts a main house and separate guesthouse, which together span nearly 6000 square feet set high in the Hollywood Hills with views across the city skyline.

The main house includes four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, with the guesthouse adding another bedroom suite.

The primary bedroom features a fireplace, a walk-in closet, space for a sitting area and luxurious views.

The primary bathroom is decked out in a money-green onyx with a glass-walled shower and separate soaking tub.

There’s a formal dining area with a floor-to-ceiling ‘green’ wall that overlooks the Hollywood Hills, as well as a minimalist kitchen, with quartz countertops and eat-in dining.

The living room opens out to the infinity-edged swimming pool, which overlooks the surrounding canyons and city lights.

One of the estate’s most unique features is the outdoor movie theatre, which runs off a projector and the guesthouse’s distinctive single-plate folding roof. The property is set at the end of a long dead-end street and sits behind two sets of gates.

Williams sold the LA pad to Francis Davidson, the chief executive officer and founder of Sonder, the short-term rental managing firm that is one of Airbnb’s biggest rivals.

This is the second Californian property Williams has sold in recent times after relocating to Miami with his family and buying a US$30 million estate in the Coral Gables community.
