By Dolores Quintana
This Benedict Canyon estate at 2650 Benedict Canyon Drive embodies the epitome of luxury living and is now listed for sale for $48 million as reported by TMZ. It is tucked away behind imposing private gates making it one of the most exclusive properties in the area. With 7 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a sprawling 16,390 square feet of pristine living space on 1.84- acres of land, this exceptional estate showcases unparalleled design and craftsmanship.
It was formerly owned by KISS bassist and co-lead singer Gene Simmons who sold the home for $16 million in 2021. The home has undergone an extensive renovation done by NOBEL Architecture and Interior Design.
Every detail of this residence has been meticulously crafted using the finest materials. The main level features exquisite natural Italian marble flooring, custom-made stone oak wood panels, and tasteful brass accents. Upon entering the grand, double-height entrance, one is greeted by a spacious living area flooded with abundant natural light, thanks to the custom iron windows.
The open floor plan seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor spaces, offering breathtaking views of the three expansive, grassy backyards from every corner of the house, creating an ideal setting for entertainment and relaxation.
The gourmet kitchen, adorned with Poliform cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances, and dual all-marble center islands, is a chef’s dream. A breakfast area completes the culinary haven. The lavish primary suite exudes luxury, featuring a sitting room, private balcony, and custom-made wardrobes by Rimadesio.
The serene primary bathroom envelops you in Italian elegance and modern charm, boasting a transparent tub and an open double shower finished with Gessi plumbing fixtures. The entire residence is thoughtfully furnished with state-of-the-art pieces from renowned brands like Minotti, Henge, and Baxter. The integration of a smart home automation system by KNX/DMC adds a touch of modern convenience.
Additional highlights of this magnificent estate include a media room and a second primary bedroom overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds. The outdoor living spaces are truly exceptional, highlighted by a 60×20 knife-edge pool surrounded by lush landscaping. An outdoor BBQ area, complete with custom chandeliers, provides a stunning backdrop for al fresco dining, accommodating up to 30 guests. Parking is never a concern with space for 30 cars on the property. The main house features an attached 3-car garage, while a separate 10-car garage, with the option for lifts to accommodate an additional 20 cars, is conveniently located below the house.
