Ever see a face you recognize but can't place? How about a house? This palatial Studio City, CA, home probably looks familiar, but you might not be able to pinpoint where you've seen it before. That's because the Italian-meets-Mediterranean property, known as the Iredell Estate, has been used in too many television projects to name. Fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians will recognize it as the exterior of matriarch Kris's home (she doesn't actually live here, it was just a stand-in for the exterior of her real house). It's also been used on American Horror Story, True Blood, Chelsea Lately, and a Victoria Secret commercial, just to name a few.
So what's the appeal? Real estate agent Brandon Assanti of Rodeo Realty Beverly Hills represents the property, which is on the market for US$7.895 million (approx. $10 million), and in the listing he highlights the home's glamorous design, panoramic mountain and canyon views, and "unparalleled quality and elegance." The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home is spread out over 728 luxurious square metres, complete with a dramatic two-story entry, chef's kitchen, screening room, wine cellar, and outdoor kitchen, and it features opulent architectural details throughout. The master suite is a masterpiece unto itself, with a spa-like bathroom, his-and-her walk-in closets, a private patio, and direct access to the salt-water pool and Jacuzzi.
