Designer Kelly Wearstler Lists Maximalist Estate at Maximalist Price

New, 41 comments

Months after rumors start flying that uber-designer Kelly Wearster and hotelier Brad Korzen quietly put their Beverly Hills mansion on the market, the 11,300-square-foot pad is officially listed for $46M. Called Hillcrest Estate, the Georgian/Hollywood Regency-style home was originally built for actor William Powell and his wife at the time, a li'l actress by the name of Carole Lombard. Wearstler and Korzen hired architect Brian Tichenor to preserve much of the home's Art Moderne details, and the space was profiled in the October 2009 issue of Vogue: "horn-legged tables, black-lacquer-and-brass furnishings and objets, ebony leather Chesterfield sofas, and an alarmingly overscaled nude sculpture (torsos, busts, and other statuary abound in the house." Which translates, of course, to more statuary than Recoleta. Consider it Wearstler maximalism at its finest.
