In the ’tween-holiday interval of last year, Priscilla Presley sold her longtime home in Beverly Hills, accepting an offer of $13 million for a property she’d initially listed a few months earlier for $16 million. The intensely romantic home—a 1950’s Spanish-style vine-covered rambler situated amid lush landscaping embellished with red brick—had been owned by the businesswoman and occasional actress since the mid-1970s.
Presley wasted little time in house-hunting anew, however, and recently purchased an easy-upkeep solution in a luxury residential complex in Century City, according to Dirt.
There’s a little bit of Hollywood Regency in the 1979-built condo building’s mixed-Euro village architecture, as the roofline riffs on mansard, reinterpreting it as straight-edge; a touch of glamour that’s evocative of the Golden Age, far from overplayed.
Presley’s unit is a penthouse, and the unit’s interiors are buoyant and similarly styled, with off-white, a crystal chandelier or two, marble backsplashes and countertops in the kitchen, and natural-toned hardwood throughout.
Soothing pastels warm and cool and, in the dayroom, floral wall covering add a bit of color and some additional complexity. The master suite is given the most attention, with a large spa-like bath boasting skylights and an equally sizable dressing room and closet.
The gated complex’s amenities include a gym, tennis courts, swimming pools and a clubhouse, as well as a series of gardens, water features and walkways engineered to enhance the quiet scenery of a Western European town.
