Restauranteur Jonathan Neman and billionaire heiress wife Leora Kadisha recently purchased an ultra-luxurious Beverly Hills home for $21.4 million.
The Sweetgreen CEO picked up the Trousdale Estates residence from movie producer Roger Birnbaum. Birnbaum—who once served as the CEO at MGM—first listed the L.A.-area property last year for $34 million, a somewhat optimistic ask.
The grand midcentury modern estate was designed by architect Hal Levitt and built in 1958. Dubbed the Skouras Residence, the 8,000 square-footer has since undergone a series of high-end updates over the past decades. Interior designer Kelly Wearstler and her husband bought the home in the 2000s, and styled it to taste.
The open-concept main living area boasts a massive art piece of a fireplace crafted from marble. The unique fixture blends beautifully with original but refinished parquet flooring, and is the centerpiece of the home.
The living room flows seamlessly to the large formal dining room that is flooded with natural light from a seemingly endless series of windows, and glass doors that open onto the shaded outdoor dining area. The backyard is ideal for entertaining with a lush lawn and a swimming pool.
Former owners of the Skouras Residence include Ellen DeGeneres, who sold it in 2013 for $20 million.
