The Los Angeles trophy residence of hitmaker L.A. Reid is back on the open market this month after a hiatus lasting at least two years. The music producer has owned the sprawling Bel-Air modern since 2016; he initially listed the showplace in 2019, asking $22.9 million. The property is back in 2022 with an asking price of $21.95 million.
The house was completed in 2015, and first listed in November of that year, selling to Reid for $18 million the following summer. As he was the first owner, revisions were not necessary, and a look at the house as it stands now and listing information from seven years ago reveals no noticeable major alterations.
Details at work in the house include the dining room’s hardwood ceiling, an interesting take on tray designs, as well as the freestanding accent wall that gives some room-to-room definition to the otherwise wide-open common area, and adds a two-sided gas fireplace to the space. There are three staircases at work; one primary unit, a single-wall design with floating treads, is more atmospheric, while the other is a double-stringer steel design that riffs more on sci-fi movie sets than industry. A third offers access to the home’s velvety entertainment space. An elevator is listed among the amenities, and available for less strenuous trips between levels.
Glossy marble tile, skylights, wood paneling, and of soaring walls of oversized glass panes also feature as generalities in the house. There are seven bedrooms and nine baths in its 11,246 sq. ft. of interiors, with the master boasting a sauna and a freestanding soaking tub and balcony access overlooking the bulk of the 1.01-acre lot, and its plateau-like, dual-pool backyard.
