No fewer than four previously proven informants swear to this property gossip that model, actress and former professional wrestler Stacy Keibler and her digital-advertising entrepreneur husband, Jared Pobre, covertly, via corporate concern, shelled out $20.5 million for a brand spanking new Georgian mansion in the Flats of Beverly Hills. Listing details show the stately and sumptuously appointed Thomas Proctor-designed domicile — nearly 14,000 square feet with a total of eight bedrooms and nine full and three half bathrooms — seamlessly marries classic 1930s glamour, i.e. black-and-white marble checkerboard flooring, with modern day creature comforts.
The ballroom-scaled formal living room has a marble fireplace and herringbone pattern wood floor that continues into a formal dining room that easily seats a dozen. A walnut-paneled library offers another fireplace and wet bar, and the all-white kitchen is open to a combination dining area and family room where transom-topped French doors lead to a loggia that overlooks the grassy backyard and swimming pool. Upstairs, five family bedrooms share a den/playroom while the master suite provides two book-matched marble bathrooms and a boutique-style dressing room lined with glass-fronted wardrobes. A basement, finished to the same meticulous standards as the rest of the house, holds a gym, screening room and walk-in wine cellar, while a guesthouse beyond the swimming pool offers a living room, kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom.
Our research shows Pobre sold an 8,000-square-foot, Santa Barbara-style home in Newport Coast, Calif., last year for $8.75 million, and still owns an ultra-modern residence in the Trousdale Estates area of BevHills — purchased in late 2012 for $11.1 million — where last year Keibler gave birth to the couple’s daughter.
