Inside Steven Meisel's SoCal Spread, Quietly Asking $15M

Ellen and Portia had their house photographed for Architectural Digest, then it sold; Reese Witherspoon had her house photographed for Elle Decor, then put it on the market; and so it continues with Steven Meisel, who's rumored to be quietly shopping around the Beverly Hills home featured last year in Arch Digest. The Real Estalker hears the fashion photographer wants $15M for the spread, which was originally designed in 1963 and later rebuilt and expanded by the L.A.-based firm Marmol Radziner. "We took that idea and other original details and expanded on them," Ron Radziner told Arch Digest in the October issue. "Even though the house is completely rebuilt, it still has the same spirit. That was something Steven felt very passionate about."

Designer Brad Dunning was called in to do the interiors—now 6,300 square feet, up from the original structure's 4,000—pulling in glamorous pieces by "masters of exuberant midcentury design" such as William Haines, James Mont, and Tommi Parzinger, introducing a mica accent wall, of all things, and adding "broad expanses of green onyx" to the combination office/master bath. "That space was my idea," says Meisel about the curious hybrid. "It just made sense to me—take a shower, get dressed, make a few calls, and do a little work. I love that room." A closer look, above.
