If you’re bored of Miami Beach…

Calvin Klein is bored of living in the “resort” of Miami Beach and has placed his £10.4 million home on the market

 

Fashion icon Calvin Klein is joining Lil Wayne and Shakira and is quitting Miami. He has placed his Spanish-style home on the market for £10.4 million ($16 million) and is in contract to buy a “glass box up in the hills” of Hollywood.

Last sold for $1.625 million (the equivalent of $2.3 million or £1.5 million today) in 1999, “Calvin Klein’s private waterfront sanctuary” – as marketing material describes it – has been extensively renovated by the current owner in conjunction with the designer Axel Vervoordt. It is situated on a lot of 0.38 acres, was built in 1929 and includes 7,966 square foot of internal and external living space. Features number 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 “1/2 bathrooms”, a double garage, an infinity pool and a dock.

 

Of why he is moving, Klein told Page Six:

 

“Not to compare apples to oranges, but Miami Beach is a resort… LA is where people work, not only in the entertainment business, but all different walks — the social media world — it’s a new experience”.

 

“[I] had a blast in Miami, but I can only last so long just doing one thing… Life is an adventure. It’s the ride. It’s not how much money you make, it’s the ride and adventure of living”.

 

“It may sound crazy, but I wouldn’t sell it to just anyone. It would break my heart. I hate to use the word ‘unique,’ but I have never seen another house like it …. I want to sell it to someone who appreciates the aesthetic”.

      • I fear, as an arbiter of good taste, I have to agree with Fiona and disagree with dear old Rod.
        If Rod had his way it would be full of old hunting prints and large Sheraton sideboards.
        He might even have lots of wellington boots scattered around.
        Anyway, what kills it for me would be having to live amongst dreadful, vulgar Americans. And Miami is full of all sorts of South American riff raff criminals

    1. Mmmm… A rather underwhelming house for stunning and colourful Miami beach! I tend to agree with Rod as the decor is too bland. When you see the stunning colours used for houses used along Ocean Drive etc. it looks so ordinary. Still, I hope Calvin gets his unique buyer.
