Chrissy Teigen's home in the Los Angeles area
Chrissy Teigen is a model, celebrity cookbook author, TV host, and wife to John Legend. But did you know that Teigen and Legend own a colossal mansion, which they purchased from Rihanna in 2016? The supermodel and her EGOT winner husband’s mountain-top mansion is in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles which they bought for an enormous $14.1 M. Yes, really!
Don Stewart of Desiderata Design redesigned the 1960’s architectural marvel to make this home a haven for indoor-outdoor living. Chrissy’s house is a grand property soaked in luxury open space living, just perfect for the Californian sunshine! The essence of this property is the open-concept gorgeous living area which opens into a sprawling outdoor space. Full-length French walls integrate indoor and outdoor living spaces. The 8520 square feet house is subtle and beautiful, it is earthy and modern, it is chic, and it is tastefully designed! The overall vibe of the house is serene which, at the first look, reminded the designer of the Thai temple. The basalt stone and baked oak flooring used in the redesign bring earthy element to the gigantic mansion.
John Legend’s piano is placed in the entryway. And know what? The lyrics of the songs from his first two albums are printed on the custom-made Chandelier above the piano. The island kitchen and the dining area are ideal for entertaining and hosting guests. Many of the meals from Chrissy’s beloved cookbook are created in the sprawling chef's kitchen. Chrissy has of late emerged as a food personality with a huge following on her Instagram account. Basalt counters and floor tiles in the open kitchen complement the rift-cut teak cabinetry.
The house boasts 5 bedrooms - a master suite, a room for their daughter Luna and son Miles and three guest rooms. The master suite is a perfect haven which has a posh walk-in shower and a sauna to rejuvenate! Spacious walk-in wardrobes add to the comfort. The master suite is surrounded with beautiful mountain views and an outside bathing area. A basalt tub is anchored in this tranquil outdoor area.
The stunning mansion also houses a home theatre, a swimming pool and a gym. John Legend has a home recording studio too which is acoustically designed for low sound, creative vibe and equanimity. A 19th century Thai Panel from Charles Jacobsen is displayed in the guest bedroom. A patio, a swimming pool and a viewing deck are within the grounds.
The power couple can enjoy picturesque views of all of Los Angeles, including the Pacific Ocean, city, and canyon. This soothing retreat is a perfect combination of grandeur and warmth. It is a perfect mix of opulence and comfort creating a Zen atmosphere, this home has it all!
