Having recently upgraded to a $69 million, roughly 33,000-square-foot megamansion in prime lower Bel Air — in one of California’s priciest 2021 home sales — Abel Tesfaye no longer has any need for his former Wilshire Corridor digs. Unsurprisingly, the Canadian music superstar, better known as The Weeknd, has now officially listed the smaller property in the heart of Westwood, asking $22.5 million for the glam Wilshire Corridor penthouse. He paid $21 million for the place a little over two years ago.
Occupying the entire 18th floor of the exclusive Beverly West building — a luxe, 22-story boutique luxury condo tower with 35 units overlooking the Los Angeles Country Club — the unit is known as the “Mogul,” and offers four bedrooms and eight baths in nearly 8,000 square feet of modern living space. Stylishly decorated interiors are adorned throughout with soaring ceilings, designer lighting, walnut paneling, and natural stone and wide-plank white oak wood floors. Floor-to-ceiling walls of glass in almost every room offer up panoramic vistas stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Santa Monica Mountains to Downtown Los Angeles.
Highlights include an elevator-accessible foyer opening to a corridor sporting a wine vault. An open-plan great room spanning the entire length of the building holds a living room and an entertainment bar with a custom TV wall, along with an Italian Arclinea kitchen outfitted with high-end Miele appliances, an oversized eat-in island and an adjacent dining area. An opulent master suite features picturesque views via a private balcony and a showroom-style closet. There’s also a lavish bath equipped with dual vanities, a steam shower and glass-lined soaking tub, plus a mirrored gym.
Three additional ensuite bedrooms, each with their own walk-in closet, can be found around the penthouse’s perimeter; and topping it all off are plenty of building amenities — courtesy of a hefty $8,051 monthly HOA charge — which include 24/7 security, valet parking, a saltwater pool and spa, and even a helipad.
Angel Salvador of The Beverly Hills Estates serves as the listing agent.
