Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow re-listed her Beverly Hills home for $12.9 million; it has seen a price cut of $400K.
Bigelow purchased the expansive property back in 1989—from James Cameron—for just $1.8 million. The Beverly Hills Post Office area home is located on two acres and stands out as an architectural treasure; the architecture is almost brutalist, while its setting is idyllic.
The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom contemporary’s unusually effective blend of warm wood and industrial influence makes for a charmingly thoughtful living style. The expansive main great room space is a beaut; the room is clad with plenty of glass windows, and features soaring 16-foot ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and exposed beamed ceilings.
Further inside, the moderately sized kitchen stands out with an eat-in island and stainless steel appliances. Most appealing, though, is the lofted-style master suite with its sitting room, imposing concrete fireplace accent wall, and sauna.
Outside, the rule of thumb is escapist; stone paths and steps are woven with expansive patios, a swimming pool with a spa, and a pool house, mature trees, and romantic landscaping.
Bigelow is best known for “The Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty”…but “Near Dark” remains the final word on revisionist vampire flicks.
