Greek shipping heir, and onetime Paris Hilton paramour, Stavros Niarchos, has snapped up Celine creative director Hedi Slimane’s midcentury modern Beverly Hills home for $13.5 million –- $4 million under the original asking price.
Built in 1961 by vaunted modernist architect Rex Lotery, the 4,600-square-foot home with five bedrooms and six bathrooms is “hewn from a choice mixture of steel and glass,” according to Dirt.com.
The property also boasts a bridge over a reflecting pool, glass walls, a double-sided fireplace, a library/media lounge and a gourmet kitchen, the outlet noted.
There is also a swimming pool “and a jungle’s worth of tropical trees and other associated plantings.”
Niarchos, now married to Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich’s ex Dasha Zukhova, also owns the $12.8 million Kronish House, which Dirt called “one of the most prized architectural properties in Beverly Hills,” as well as the $15 million mansion next door.
