Rocky is back in the game! Last month, amid huge fanfare, Sylvester Stallone sold his custom 90210 mansion to Adele for a whopping $58 million — the most ever paid for a house in the guard-gated Beverly Park community.
While Stallone and his wife Jennifer are now Florida residents with a $35 million home out in Palm Beach, it’s apparent that the couple still plans to maintain a California foothold. To that end, they’ve stealthily “downsized” to an estate in Hidden Hills, another guard-gated enclave near Los Angeles that’s famed for its many famous musician and professional athlete residents, although the San Fernando Valley community is probably best known for being home to nearly every member of the Kardashian clan. Records show Stallone paid about $18.2 million for the place, meaning he got himself a new home and still managed to pocket roughly $40 million from the Beverly Park sale. (All before taxes and closing costs, of course.)
Set at the end of a discreet Hidden Hills cul-de-sac, the gated estate spans more than two acres and is a true compound, with a mansion-sized main house, a guesthouse, pool house and separate horse barn. Altogether, the various stuctures include more than 10,000 square feet of living space, and the fully landscaped property also includes a greenhouse, vegetable garden, 100 fruit-bearing citrus and avocado trees, a koi pond and a horse arena for riding.
Built new in 2015, the property was sold the following year for $7.8 million to Margie Keyes, the Australian-born ex-wife of Keyes Auto Group owner Howard Keyes. (The Keyes empire included many Southern California and Arizona car dealerships, including Mercedes-Benz of Van Nuys, Keyes Lexus and Bell Road Toyota in Phoenix.)
Shortly after her purchase, Keyes engaged the services of noted interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard — best known for his work with celebrity clients like the Kardashians and the Osbourne family — to give the place a very custom makeover, with no expense spared.
Seen below, the results of those renovations likely cost millions. They’re also Hamptons-esque and magazine-worthy, with a decidedly feminine flair in the soft neutral colors and flowy curtains that drape all the luxe living spaces.
