Near the end of last year, we took a glimpse inside Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s swoon-worthy Spanish colonial home, but this holiday season, the designers are looking for a new owner to settle into their exquisitely-styled abode.
Berkus and Brent recently placed their Hancock Park mansion on the market for $13.8 million with Coldwell Banker Global Luxury’s Brent Watson—just two years after they purchased the property for $8.815 million from “Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman.
The “Nate and Jeremiah by Design” stars’ 8,477-square-foot historic residence was built in 1928 by the AD Chisholm Co. for financier E.S. Rowley, according to Realtor.com. It has six bedrooms and seven bathroom in total, including a two-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house. After moving in, the design duo gave their home their signature makeover treatment, resulting in upgraded kitchen fixtures, antique marble floors, new fireplace mantels and more, a major undertaking that took place just after the couple placed their renovated Greenwich Village apartment on the market for just over $10 million.
The flooring in the foyer is 17th-century marble. There’s also a screening room, a formal dining area, a junior dining room, a great room, kitchen, and a library with paneled walls. Among the bedrooms is the master suite, which contains a pair of his-and-his closets, its own fireplace and a balcony that grants a view of the gardens below. The home’s exterior is equally stunning and suitable for entertaining or simply relaxing by way of a pool with automatic cover, a fireplace, a dining area, a koi pond, and organic gardens. The manse also comes with a pottery room, plus a three-car garage.
Shortly after acquiring the property, Berkus and Brent admitted that they initially felt the house wasn’t exactly a fit but then expressed plans to stay in the home and “put down roots,” an idea that blossomed in part due to the 200-year-old oak tree in the backyard.
With the help of Mother Nature and the couple’s acclaimed design skills, this beautiful historic home practically sells itself.
