In the past two months, Los Angeles-based doctor Paul Nassif has acquired one home and relisted another. In early May, the plastic surgeon-turned-TV personality closed on a residence a stone’s throw from Strand Beach. The 2012-built contemporary contains six bedrooms and eight baths across 9,005 sq. ft.; its architecture, which is inspired by French Mediterranean villas, is the foundation of a languid and incredibly inviting indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
In late June, the Botched staff physician decided to take another crack at selling his custom-built, 12,130 sq. ft. house in lower Bel Air. The rhinoplasty specialist initially listed the estate last year, when it was still a work in progress. The modern villa was completed later that year, and returns to the open market tagged at $29.95 million.
The seven-bed, eleven-bath home’s architecture recalls Prairie designs: a stack of three plateaus liberated by abundant glass, with indoor and outdoor living spaces profoundly entwined. It’s a hillside build, with an elevated driveway establishing the slightly ‘floating’ feel of the residence that’s fully realized in its panoramic views, which give the impression of an aerial perspective. Aside from glass, materials at work include steel and stacked stone.
Inside the home, details include slatted hardwood accents, bookmatched and figured slab stone, and mid-toned hardwood paneling. On the creature comforts list is a full-sized bar, and a spacious master with sliding glass opening to the infinity-edge pool and cabana bar.
