Paris Latsis — hotel heiress Paris Hilton’s one-time fiance and himself an heir to a great Greek shipping fortune — has a curvilinear contemporary high above Beverly Hills up for grabs at just a smitch under $15 million. Latsis, who is in his early 30s and part of a growing cadre of well-funded billionaires’ children who use their inherited bank accounts to shoehorn their way into the movie business — his upcoming roster includes “Grandma” with Lily Tomlin — acquired the cliffside clinger via corporate entity in April 2006 for $9.2 million, and he’s unsuccessfully attempted to unload the sexed-up city-view residence at least twice before; in 2008, the property was briefly available with an asking price of $15 million, and in 2010, it popped up again at $13.75 million.
Current listing details, which curiously include images identical to those used to market the property in 2010 and 2008, do not indicate the five-bedroom and six-bathroom residence’s square footage, although the L.A. County Tax Man pegs it at a soupcon over 7,000. The three-story residence, linked by a curved-glass-and-steel staircase as well as an elevator for the exercise-averse and/or infirm, has interconnected living spaces that include a lounge with fireplace; a dining space set into a window-lined semicircular bay; a games area with pool table; and a sleek eat-in kitchen with all the culinary bells and whistles that a hired chef might desire. On the lower level, the family room and adjoining media room open through 12-foot walls of frameless glass to the petite, faux-grassed backyard where sun beds and a dining table shaded by pinky-red umbrellas surround a downright operatic negative-edge swimming pool and spa.
