Restauranteur Peter Morton recently listed his Beverly Hills mansion for $15.45 million.
Morton—who co-founded and co-owns Hard Rock Cafe—purchased the investment property for $13.5 million just under a year ago.
The modern-style home is located on nearly half an acre in the celebrity-filled Trousdale Estates neighborhood. It dates to 1964, and stretches to 5,243 square feet. The exterior is boxy, white but for the occasional timber accent, and glassy enough to carry that appealing transparent feel that blurs interior with exterior so nicely in these homes.
A look inside won’t be possible, though; there are no pictures of the interior available. The listing does make use of a series of design portfolio images for a new home, so the land is clearly valued more than the residence: the property is being marketed as a teardown/custom build.
The land is packed with mature trees, offering an unusually secluded lot. Set high on the hillside, the property boasts sprawling views of greater Los Angeles, and the Pacific Ocean.
