Living Like Chelsea Handler In Bel Air, $11.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 11011 Anzio Road, Bel Air
What: Media star Chelsea Handler’s exceptionally intelligent and welcoming re-invention of a ’60s classic, a 6-bed, 7-bath home filled with a very personal collection of furniture and art.
The entry is through a shady, leafy pergola; up a flight of stairs to a series of living spaces, guests are welcomed by an outstanding Joel Shapiro bronze.
In a sweeping gestures of feng shui, the long entertaining spaces unfold, extending from the living room hearth (and just one of many screens) to the kitchen’s gleaming professional range.
Handler also seems to have a weakness for Milo Baughman’s chrome-framed chairs, seen below in the dining room, and throughout the house.
Trivia: The property (and its completely private 50-foot pool) was originally custom built for swimming champion and ‘40s/’50s film star Esther Williams. As befits a diva of any generation, the master suite impresses. And yes, that’s a drop-down monitor.
The spa-like bath has a sauna and a double marble shower, and there’s an enviable dressing room outfilled with built-in refrigerator/freezer draws. In case you never want to leave.
The main level has additional bedrooms and baths, plus numerous areas suitable for gathering and/or escaping– not a bad thing in a business where a few minutes of screen time has to be backed up by hours of meetings, schmoozing, emails and calls.
Tucked away in a corner near the pool, the outdoor kitchen and bar, buy viagra no prescription plus you’ll want to have a pizziaolo from Mozza on speed dial.
