Jeffrey Gou, film producer and eldest son of tech magnate and Foxconn founder Terry Gou, and his wife, Joan Huang, picked up a pair of adjacent properties in the Bird Streets neighborhood of Los Angeles this month for $75.6 million, and set a record for a residential sale in the process.
According to Variety, the two houses include a $42.5 million modern-style mansion measuring about 17,000 square feet. The house was built last year, and features marble floors, a spa, and cachet-heavy materials that include stone that was, in the words of the listing, ‘curated across the globe.’
The indoor/outdoor lifestyle rich house also boasts fold-away glass walls, a wide-open shared living space with a massive accent wall and gas fireplace, an interior garden, and a staircase illuminated by a roof light.
The second home closed for $33 million and measures nearly 13,000 square feet. It’s also a modern, and also quite new: it was constructed in 2017. It is built into a hillside, and features a green roof, plentiful interior/exterior flow, and an exterior layout that makes it unusual: a green patio with fine city views, and a massive pool with a design that wraps around the front of the property and boasts a lounge island accessible by a small footbridge.
Both lots measure about three-quarters of an acre, combining to form one of the larger estates in the Bird Streets neighborhood.
