The Weeknd's Westwood Penthouse Sells for $18M
After an extensive period of nearly two years on the market, The Weeknd has finally succeeded in selling his underutilized penthouse in Los Angeles' Westwood neighborhood. Spanning the entirety of the 18th floor within the prestigious Beverly West building, this spacious penthouse has found its new owners in the form of Drs. David and Andrea Feinberg, a married couple with notable medical and leadership backgrounds.
Records from property transactions reveal that the Feinbergs made a significant investment of $18 million, marking one of the highest prices ever paid for a condo in Los Angeles. However, this purchase comes in under the penthouse's initial listing price of $22.5 million. Remarkably, the final sales figure also stands $3 million less than what The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye, originally purchased the penthouse for four years ago. Yet, it's important to note that this financial setback doesn't seem to faze the 33-year-old Canadian artist, who has since moved on to a luxurious $69 million estate in the sought-after Bel Air neighborhood.
The penthouse's true allure lies in its breathtaking 360-degree vistas, offering panoramic views of Downtown Los Angeles, the Pacific Ocean, and the Santa Monica Mountains. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls ensure that the lush golf greens of the Los Angeles Country Club, which adjoins the Beverly West building, are also part of the captivating scenery.
Boasting nearly 8,000 square feet of contemporary living space, the penthouse encompasses four bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The interiors are adorned with high ceilings, designer lighting fixtures, and rich walnut paneling throughout. The master retreat is particularly lavish, featuring a boutique-style closet resembling a showroom, an expansive bathroom with a steam shower and soaking tub, and a private balcony.
Among the notable features are a backlit and temperature-controlled "wine vault," a gym lined with mirrored walls, and a great room housing both a living area and a wet bar complete with a TV wall. The wide-plank white oak floors and a meticulously designed Italian kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line Miele appliances add to the penthouse's grandeur.
Built in the 2010s, the Beverly West building is home to just 35 luxury condos, each offering a range of communal amenities such as valet parking, around-the-clock concierge services, security personnel, a sparkling pool, and even a rooftop helipad. However, these luxuries come at a cost, as the monthly homeowners association (HOA) dues for this specific penthouse amount to over $8,000.
