“American Idol” creator Simon Fuller listed his Bel Air mansion this week; he’s looking for a buyer with $35 million.
The pop music producer and his wife Natalie Swanston purchased the Los Angeles-area estate for $24 million about four years ago. They first put the home on the market for $37.5 million in October, but no soap. So the house returns with a judicious price cut. Maybe it’ll be enough to generate some sincere interest.
The beautiful 11,200-square-foot residence was designed by architect Gordon Kaufmann, and dates to 1927. Fuller and Swanston oversaw a number of modern updates during their ownership tenure, but they retained the spirit of the period. The house looks updated, but keeps the style of the home’s original architecture and interior feel.
The home’s impressive series of unique details define it. Accent windows, an inlaid marble floor, a mesmerizing kitchen floor, and a rotunda office with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling built-ins are standouts. The seven-bedroom home features an understated white, gray, and black color palette.
The expansive 1.6-acre estate works in a greenhouse, a guesthouse, and a swimming pool with a spa in delightfully rambling landscaping.
