About five years ago, former WWE wrestler Stacy Keibler and tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre packed up and moved to Jackson, Wyo., to focus on raising their kids — they now have three — and shortly thereafter hoisted their sophisticated home in the swanky Trousdale Estates neighborhood in Beverly Hills, Calif., on the market with an in-hindsight pie-in-the-sky price of $18.25 million.
With no takers at that price, or the not quite $17 million it was later listed, they took the sprawling single-story spread off the market in 2018 only to put it back up for sale this year at a sliver under $16 million. The reduced asking price seems to have done the trick because the uncommonly comely couple, who together founded the Wyoming-based Caldera + Lab men’s skincare line, quickly landed a buyer who’s ponied up $15.2 million for the chic city-view residence.
Pobre acquired the almost half-acre property in late 2012 for $11.1 million, according to tax records, after it had been transformed by L.A.-based architect James Schmidt from a stylish, if dated, two-bedroom residence built in 1963 with a small staff suite and a semi-detached guest house into a nearly 5,800-square-foot showpiece for modern living with five en suite bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.
Light streams into the home through floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and reflects off gleaming white terrazzo floors in the living and dining rooms that are divided by a double-sided fireplace sheathed in great slabs of book-matched marble. A walk-in wet bar in the living room facilitates relaxed entertaining.
Moved from the opposite side of the house where the main bedroom is now located, the gourmet kitchen sports dark wood cabinets and marble counters that waterfall of the ends of a doublewide island with integrated snack bar. The adjoining breakfast area has massive picture windows that overlook the pool, and the cozily proportioned family room has a fireplace and full-height panels of glass that slip into the walls. Each of the four guest bedrooms is en suite with generous closet space, while the primary suite offers a fireplace, a sitting room, a couple of custom-fitted closets, one of them a walk-in, and two bathrooms with radiant heated marble floors.
Five floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living and dining rooms pivot open to the relatively compact but smartly configured backyard that manages to squeeze in a slender strip lawn, and an ample dining terrace with built-in grill around an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa that gives way to unobstructed views over Beverly Hills and, on a clear day, all the way to Catalina Island.
