The lavish Holmby Hills estate of the late Paramount CEO, Brad Grey is on the market, seeking $77.5 million. Known as the Grey Estate, the two-acre property is hidden between double wooden steel-framed gates on Carolwood Drive.
The Grey Estate sprawls on over 2 acres behind steel-framed wooden gates on the exclusive Carolwood Drive. It is a modern masterpiece, brought to life by famed architect Howard Backen, who seamlessly combined contemporary design with natural finishes to allow for an easy transition between interior and exterior. The haute home comes with five bedrooms and 12 full baths. Designed by Atelier AM, the interiors are a playful mix of crisp whites and grays, exposed wood beams, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
On the main floor-resides in the open, barn-like great living room, features a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams, a wood wall defined by a fireplace, and sliding doors that lead outside. The studio-quality movie theater is an ideal place to gather with family and friends, while a private den with a bar and office promises much-needed peace and quiet at the end of a long day. A kitchen, open dining areas, and a light-drenched sunroom with a stone fireplace round out the indoor amenities.
The second floor, accessible by a dark wooden elevator, accommodates the opulent master suite, which affords spectacular vistas of Century City. Four other bedrooms occupy the guest wing of the residence.
The wings of the home are positioned to look onto a central courtyard with a reflecting pool and large fireplace feature. Nearby, a slatted-wood trellis for filtering sunlight tops an outdoor dining room. An organic fruit orchard and a vegetable and herb garden sit adjacent. Manicured gardens designed by British landscape architect Miranda Brooks surround the home and offer views of the surrounding hills.
