Tyler Ellis, the daughter of fashion designer Perry Ellis and screenplay writer Barbara Gallagher, has put the mansion that she and her husband Benjamin Shriner have renovated for sale as reported by The Dirt.com. Originally they purchased the home for $12.3 million and now have placed an almost $30 million price tag on their French chateau-like property in one of the most envied neighborhoods in Brentwood.
It’s been six years since the purchase of the home which was constructed in 2005. The couple had the home fully customized and worked in tandem with the designer of the home William Hefner and the interior designer team of The Archers. The home has been enlarged within 11,800 square feet of living space to include six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms and an added “entertainment” house structure.
Aaron Kirman of AKG | Christie’s International Real Estate, who is the co-listing agent with Morgan Trent, also of AKG, said, “This is a rare and exquisite estate that perfectly blends classical and contemporary styles. From the moment you step into Bristol Château, you are transported to a tranquil and lush European oasis in the heart of Brentwood Park. The details and design put in by William Hefner and The Archers make for a one-of-a-kind residence that embodies timeless elegance and sophistication.”
The home sits on a half-acre parcel of land that has enormous Cypress trees shading the property along with walls and gates for privacy. You can only enter the main, two-story house through a reeded glass entry that leads into a grand foyer. Who greets you in the foyer? A custom pink bear with fur made of feathers which was created by Paola Pivi, an Italian artist.
The gourmet kitchen has an overall color scheme of black and contains new bronze hardware and subway tiling with a La Cornue range. The formal dining room has a custom chandelier made by Studio Molen, a blue lacquered library, and upstairs a luxurious master bedroom with its den, dual baths and walk-in closets.
The second house aka the “entertainment house” on the property has three stories with nearly 5,000 square feet of space and has its speakeasy, movie theatre and a wine cellar made of limestone with 6,500 bottles of wine.
The terrace in the backyard is nearby the pool and spa, a garden, a bocce ball court and lounge areas. The couple is selling the house because they are looking for another project according to The Wall Street Journal.
