Nate Berkus, who made a name for himself as Oprah’s home-makeover sidekick/decor tycoon, has just dropped $2.36 million on a home in West Hollywood, CA. And while he’s used to outfitting other celebs’ homes (ahem, Billy Joel), this time the new digs are all his.
The four-bed, five-bath Spanish Revival–style home is smack-dab in the middle of one of Hollywood’s most legendary neighborhoods: The Chateau Marmont is just around the corner, as is the former residence of actor Marlon Brando.
Measuring 3,643 square feet, the home, which was built in 1924, flows well for entertaining — and luckily, Berkus is known for his inviting decor. Inside, hardwood floors and Spanish-style arches are complemented by high ceilings and crown molding, perfectly reminiscent of 1920s Hollywood. A spacious chef’s kitchen has a large island, double ovens, and new stainless steel appliances. A wood-burning fireplace offers residents a spot to cozy up in the grand living room.
The property features seven outdoor areas. A large swimming pool sparkles, and several balconies offer peaceful sitting areas. But the crowning jewel of this Spanish beauty is the dazzling views of downtown Los Angeles and the rolling canyons.
Berkus and his main man, former Rachel Zoe staffer (and successful designer in his own right) Jeremiah Brent, also own a home in New York’s Greenwich Village. Naturally, that spot was just featured in Architectural Digest.
We’re sure the design duo are itching to put their own stamp on their new home in LA; perhaps this journey out west has something to do with their new arrival, baby Poppy. Wherever she sleeps, we know Poppy will have the coolest nursery on the block.
