Decorator and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” regular Faye Resnick sold a newly refurbished residence in a famously celebrity-packed nook of the Hollywood Hills for $2.29 million. Resnick, who penned a pair of scandalous books on the O.J. Simpson murder trial and posed for “Playboy” before she did up homes for Paris Hilton, Kyle Richards, Nick Lachey and Kevin Connolly, purchased the property with her then-fiancee, Everett Jack Jr. in December 2012, for $1.605 million. Some of the more notable folk who live close enough to borrow sugar are Quentin Tarantino, Jake Gyllenhaal and David Hockney.
The buyer’s identity is shielded behind a trust, but real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak swears on her fastidiously preserved 1985 Cadillac Seville that the buyer of the double-lot spread is oft-mustachioed actor Jack Huston — Angelica Huston’s nephew — and his model girlfriend/baby momma Shannan Click.
The black-shuttered, two-story residence, hidden from the street by a tall wall of shrubbery, sits at the tail end of a long, rising-sloped and gated driveway, and has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 2,567 square feet. Dark brown wood floors flow throughout the interconnected and exuberantly decorated open-plan living spaces on the upper floor, which include a living room with library nook, dining area, family room with built-in entertainment unit, and center island eat-in kitchen with marble countertops and top-grade appliances. Four sets of French doors open the upper floor to a slender, Saltillo-tiled north-facing veranda with an over-the-treetops sky and mountain view.
The upper-level master suite has two fitted walk-in closets, a private balcony and a liberally mirrored and marbled bathroom, while two en-suite bedrooms and a second family room on the lower level open through more French doors to another Saltillo-tiled veranda that steps down to a glammy, oval-shaped swimming pool ringed by a thin strip of grass and a thick wall of foliage.
