Commissioned in the Hollywood Hills by David Gray Architects, the 12,000 square-foot, nine-bedroom Skycastle was designed to be a sanctuary for an art connoisseur and his or her extensive art collection to perfectly integrate with the home’s aesthetically pleasing architecture. Constructed in the 1990’s for an art collector, the estate in itself is a true masterpiece, as it not only brilliantly exhibits the art collector’s exquisite works of art throughout the abode, but the outwards appearance of Skycastle is also considered to be a marvel of sheer architectural artistry and innovation.
Skycastle features sixty-foot ceilings and impressively-wide windows conjoining in the stately entryway, as well as skylights that enables an abundant ray of natural light to come flowing straight through, delivering natural lighting during the day and a stellar view of the the starry night sky after dark. Designed with a Bauhaus-style, the estate is furnished with spacious rooms in concrete, stone, and steel finish.
Musician Jed Leiber bought Skycastle in 2012, where he later modified the two-bedroom guest house into a cutting-edge recording studio, and he also equipped the estate with the latest in security measures. Each individual room inside the gated property is installed with a programmed fob to enter, which provides absolute privacy for all residents. In addition, the master suite includes a secured room that can be cordoned off by a bulletproof door.
For an added layer of privacy, Sunset Plaza Drive encircles the half-acre estate, which in turn offers an exemplary living standard with no disturbances in sight as well as the perfect home for your one of a kind art collection. This private estate that could very well be any art collector’s “dream home” is currently on the market for $50 million.
