‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Dorit Kemsley and husband Paul Kemsley listed their Beverly Hills home this month for $7.499 million.
The 8,679 square foot contemporary Mediterranean mansion is situated on a promontory cul-de-sac, and dates to 1993. The lot extends to nearly half an acre, enough space for a gated entrance and a fairly long drive as a preamble.
Within, the 6-bed, 7-bath home keeps to neutrals, with overt luxuriousness the rule of the day. Double doors open to the double-height foyer, which features a crystal chandelier and marble floor, and a single staircase with an ornate iron balustrade. The kitchen and baths contain an abundance of marble, and an entertainment room boasts a wet bar, built-ins, and a pocketing glass wall. The master is, of course, receives a sizeable chunk of the available square footage.
The more interesting spaces in the home are the wine cellar, which is nearly sheathed in rusticated limestone, and the cozy outdoor living area, which features a beautifully contrasted timber privacy wall, a step-up wood deck, a pool and spa, and enough perimetric green-and-growing to give it a lush and secluded feel that nicely compliments the fine city views.
