Simon Fuller, the creator of the American Idol franchise and man who is seemingly able to just print money, is selling his monstrous mansion in Bel Air for the “discounted” price of just $35 million (marked down from $37.5 million). You have to see the inside of this place.
Fuller, who has also managed musical artists and athletes such as the Spice Girls, Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Aloe Blacc, S Club 7, Steven Tyler, David Beckham, Lewis Hamilton, and Andy Murray, is unloading the 11,200-square-foot abode that he and his wife, interior designer Natalie Swanston, purchased in 2014 for $24 million, after making many several major upgrades to the property, according to Realtor.com.
The house, which sits on 1.6 acres of heaven, was built in 1927 by the same man who also built Beverly Hills’ famous Greystone Manor, architect Gordon Kaufmann.
It contains seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two half-baths, and best of all, it also has a goddamn turret. Yes, a turret. Dammit, I want a turret on my house! Granted, I wouldn’t have the incredible views of the ocean that this house has, but a turret would be so damn cool.
Sophisticated and elegant public rooms include a vast living room, circular wood-paneled library [Ed: IN THE TURRET!], soaring entry hall with original floating staircase and an epic dining room that can accommodate 20 guests. Massive walls for art, scaled for grand-entertaining and state of the art home automation. Gourmet kitchen with adjacent family room. Master suite is a world unto itself with large entrance vestibule, office, gym and dual baths. Grounds include large gated motor court, guest house, mosaic pool, greenhouse and manicured rolling lawns
Oh yeah, Aunt fricking Becky, Lori Loughlin, also used to live here with her husband fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli (the creator of the Mossimo clothing line) in the 1990s.
I so want to live in this house. Or at least spend a few vacation days in it.
If you’re interested in buying it, first off, invite me to visit if and when you do, and second, it will run you around $187,213 a month in mortgage payments with a $7 million down payment. No biggie.
