Since purchasing the house in 1999, Calvin Klein was always pretty private about publicity and photos of his Miami Beach house. Bruce Weberphotographed it for Vanity Fair in 2008 and now that he has listed the 1929 home for sale for $16 million, we can finally get a good look inside. The 5,800 square foot isn’t gigantic, but it comes with a few thousand more square feet of indoor-outdoor living space, 113 feet of bay frontage, an infinity pool, courtyard. It has five bedrooms, five ensuite baths with an additional two half baths too. CK has the big bucks, so I’m not sure why he’s selling this place… until you get a look at his NEW place in L.A. Just scroll down.
This new house of Calvin’s is in the Bird Streets of the Hollywood Hills, two doors down from the Facebook Winklevoss twins. Like many big-budget dwellings built on spec, the 9,300-square-foot mansion, designed by Paul-McClean, has a wealth of over-the-top features meant to impress. Done. It has a fully retractable glass walls, 13-foot ceilings, a home theater that seats a dozen hot guys, an entryway with “a bridge over a waterfall and reflecting pool,” a 65-foot infinity pool, and a garage with space for eight very expensive cars. It has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms and the master has its own private terrace with outdoor living area complete with a flat screen and a fireplace. It was first listed in January for just shy of $30 million, Klein just plunked down $25 million for it. As amazing as it is, the decoration will be THAT MUCH better once Calvin moves in. You can sure it’ll be minimalist perfection.
