An elegant new offering from famed architect William Hefner has hit the market for a cool $39.9 million. Located at 1000 Laurel Way, the Laurel House boasts a modernist, resort-like design that perfectly encapsulates the best of Beverly Hills living.
The 16,000-square-foot estate features a total of 9 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms spread across three floors. Completed in 2020, this mansion has a lot more than stunning architecture to be proud of.
On top of being a Hefner masterpiece, another prominent name is attached to the property.
It was developed by real estate mogul Adnan Sen, owner of Sen Properties, who is known for creating ultra-luxurious mansions. Per their website, Sen’s company is “dedicated to reclaiming Beverly Hills as the most exciting and glamorous city in the world.”
That name may sound familiar if you are a fan of Netflix’s Selling Sunset.
The wealthy developer (and his Laurel House property) briefly appeared on the popular real estate reality show. Let us refresh your memory…
Adnan Sen’s $75 million listing on ‘Selling Sunset’
In season 2, episode 2 of Selling Sunset, Oppenheim agent Davina Potratz introduced Adnan Sen to viewers. The property developer was looking to sell his stunning property for $100 million but was advised to lower it to $75 million.
The 16,000-square-foot megamansion came with a massive commission, which was potentially “life-changing” for the ambitious agent.
The overpriced mansion proved to be a major challenge for Potratz. Despite great efforts, she never managed to get a buyer for the house, causing a rift in her relationship with her long-time client.
Adnan and Davina faced off once again in season 5 when the latter asked for a “last chance”.
“I’m asking for a third chance, because no disrespect but it was a little bit overpriced for the area based on the cost. Three-month agreement off market, that was very limited, and I didn’t have a lot of support from Jason and that was tough,” Davina explained.
After expressing his disappointment, Adnan spoke of a newly developed property — the Laurel House — keeping Davina on her toes but later giving her a much smaller listing because “the bigger ones are a little out of your league”.
While the house didn’t get much screentime on the series, the listing went to another prestigious brokerage (one that has its own reality show on Netflix, no less), The Agency, with Pate Stevens acting as agent.
The Laurel House, a $39.9M stunner now up for grabs in Beverly Hills
Given its impressive builder credits, the mansion would undoubtedly attract a lot of discerning buyers.
The inside of the Laurel House is just as stunning as its exteriors. Boasting a modern, minimalist-yet-sophisticated design, and airy spaces, it is both elegant and inviting.
The main level has an open floor plan, featuring hardwood floors, stately columns, and floor-to-ceiling arched windows. The chef’s kitchen is well-equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, a large island, and marble-topped counters.
The primary suite upstairs has its own fireplace, his-and-her bathrooms with soaking tubs, dual walk-in closets, and two large balconies overlooking the expansive grounds.
The basement is decked out with entertainment options, ranging from a 12-seat screening room to a wine cellar, a gym, a glam room, and two ensuite bedrooms.
Additional amenities include a one-bedroom detached guest house, an oversized pool with built-in seating, an outdoor kitchen, a standalone resort-style cabana, and a gallery garage that can accommodate up to 10 cars.
The combination of exceptional architecture, well-thought-out design, and luxurious finishes make the Laurel House a truly unique property. On top of that, its quick cameo in one of Netflix’s most popular shows also adds prestige and gives potential buyers extra bragging rights.
