Back in August, I had the opportunity to tour a penthouse located at 8899 Beverly in the West Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The next time I saw it was while watching Selling Sunset. During season seven, Brett Oppenheim takes Chelsea Lazkani and Amanza Smith to tour the residence, which he noted was listed for $50 million at the time. Having been there myself, I can confirm that it's just as incredible IRL as it looks on-screen.
"This is probably, without exaggeration, the nicest condo in Southern California," Brett said during episode two of the season. "You have 14-foot ceilings, which is unprecedented in any condo in L.A. You obviously have world-class finishes."
The four-bedroom, six-bathroom residence boasts a 6,500-square-foot interior with 2,000 square feet of outdoor space. It features white oak flooring, Calacatta gold marble counters, and high-end appliances. The floor-to-ceiling windows, all of which completely open up, are made of Vitrocsa glass and have flush frames on ball-bearing tracks. Perhaps the most insane part of the penthouse is the views. "You see every single iconic landmark [shown] when they promote Los Angeles," Amanza pointed out during the episode, referring to the vistas of the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, the Pacific Design Center, and the mountains.
Of course, that's not all. The penthouse comes with a private, showroom quality, three-car garage. In total, there are 16 of those in the building. Materials such custom gunmetal herringbone brick flooring, wood sliding garage doors, and white oak wall paneling make the space so warm and inviting that I'd consider parking myself in one of the garages, and making it my home. There's also a more-than-100-car parking garage along with other shared amenities including an outdoor pool, hot tub, alfresco dining area near a fireplace, and a fitness center.
What doesn't come across in the series are the building's other luxurious and privacy-centric offerings. It's serviced by friendly, 24-hour staff (think people who would throw you a surprise birthday party), who provide services such as creating an outdoor tablescape for your next soirée. They even go so far as to replenish the building's branded aluminum water bottles set out near the pool's entrance every time someone grabs one. The security is also taken quite seriously, so no one can simply wander into the lobby off the street. (And the residents are probably safe from me actually camping out in their luxe garage.) If I had $50 million to burn or $100 million for the building's pair of penthouses, I'd move in tomorrow.
