Star-Studded Hollywood Hills Gem Lists for $8.4M

Nestled above the Sunset Strip lies a home with a rich history and architectural beauty, now on the market for $8.4 million. Originally designed by the late Harry Gesner in the 1960s, this property captures the essence of midcentury design, enriched by its celebrity connections.

The house was first built for Jack Haley Jr., a film producer and director, who would later share it with his wife, Liza Minnelli. Their residence in this architectural piece added to the home's allure. Years later, the property caught the attention of Christina Aguilera, who became its owner in 2003 and infused it with modern updates under the guidance of designer Steve Hermann.

Spanning 6,500 square feet, the home features four bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and several unique architectural details. Its design is marked by the extensive use of glass, skylights, and clerestory windows, ensuring that natural light floods the interior. The layout and materials, such as warm walnut floors and exposed-beam ceilings, pay homage to the period's design ethos while offering modern comfort.

Interior spaces like the family room with its sunken conversation pit and the kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances offer both style and functionality. The primary suite is a standout, offering luxurious amenities including two fireplaces, a sitting area, and a marble bathroom. Unique to this suite is a three-sided aquarium, blending an element of the natural world into the living space.

Outside, the property boasts a swimming pool, spa, barbecue area, and an expansive deck. These outdoor features provide ample opportunity for entertainment or enjoying the panoramic views that this hillside location affords.
