When referring to the late Bijan Pakzad the world had come to expect extravagance, which is exactly why many were eager to take a peek inside his sprawling mansion when it hit the market earlier this summer. After all, when you previously owned of one of the world’s most expensive, flamboyant boutiques, your home must compare. And it definitely didn’t disappoint.
Situated on one acre of land, the Beverly Hills home of the late menswear designer and self-made fashion mogul is bursting with luxuries and frills. Beyond its six open bedrooms, the mansion includes seven fireplaces, twelve bathrooms and a 24-car garage. Venture outside the home and you’ll discover a guesthouse casually sprawled alongside the meticulously landscaped pool and spa.
Dipped in lively reds, oranges, and yellows, the rooms are ornate with bright opulence. Lavish large-scale furniture, colorful Persian rugs, and a massive $200,000 chandelier made entirely of Bijan perfume bottles (one of the most notable features of the home) fill the rooms to capacity. Not bad – and absolutely not surprising – for the man whose flagship boutique boasted its own Persian rugs, Lucite-and-brass staircase and chandelier.
Whether you agree with Pakzad’s decorating schemes or not, there’s no denying the potential that this mega mansion possess. Reaching for your checkbook? The mansion is reportedly listed for just under $12 million.
