Slash Slashes Price of Los Angeles Mansion

SELLERS: Perla and Saul “Slash” Hudson
LOCATION: Sherman Oaks/Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $9,499,000
SIZE: 10,971 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 half bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: After more than a year on the market with several substantial price reductions, Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash, née Saul Hudson, and his estranged wife, Perla, have re-listed their marital mansion in the guard-gated and celeb-saturated Mulholland Estates development in the mountains between Beverly Hills and Sherman Oaks with an new and much lower asking price of $9.499 million. A couple of quick clicks and clacks of the beads on our bejeweled abacus calculate the current price tag to be not quite half of a million dollars less than the last asking price of $9.995 million and a head banging $1.496 million below than the apparently pie-in-the-sky original asking price of $10.995 million but still much more than the $7.3 million the erstwhile but by most accounts amicably split couple paid in 2009 for the 10,971-square-foot mansion that’s described in marketing materials as a “Modern Mediterranean Masterpiece.” The property, which is technically in the San Fernando Valley city of Sherman Oaks but has a more covetously prestigious not to mention expensive BevHills 90210 zip code, is also available as a luxury lease with an eye-popping price of $85,000 per month.

A “dramatic two story entry” leads to decadently dressed formal living and dining rooms — the former with carved wood and stone fireplace and elegantly racy red and gold brocade wallpaper and the latter lined with opulent verre églomisé mirrored panels — along with a study/library with fireplace and a state-of-art home theater. The expensively stocked double island kitchen opens to an informal dining space and steps down to a roomy family room with curved wet bar and trio of tall arched windows. One of the guest bedrooms was outfitted for the rock star as a sound-proofed recording studio and down in the basement there’s a nightclub — that’s right, butter beans, a night club — complete with tufted leather banquettes, an elevated DJ booth, lavish LED lighting system, and a stripper pole on white tufted leather platform.

The mansion’s seven bedrooms and seven full and two half bathrooms include a “grand master suite” with “explosive canyon and city light views,” private veranda, “tremendous walk in closet” with funky lavender wall-to-wall carpeting and a bathroom outfitted with steam shower, over-sized tub, and “special unique lighting,” whatever that means. “Resort quality grounds” include an arched loggia with fireplace and ceiling mounted heaters that make al fresco lounging and dining on chilly evening comfortable as well as a swimming pool and spa, built-in grilling station, an organic vegetable garden, and a sand volleyball court. Additional features called out in listing details include seven tankless water heaters, 8-zone heating and cooling system, and garaging for four cars in two two-car garages.

Some of the other mansions in the Mulholland Estates enclave are owned by Charlie Sheen, Christina Aguilera, Vanna White, Judith Light and Robert Desiderio, and Paris Hilton, who also installed a louche nightclub in her basement that reportedly — and somehow not surprisingly — has photos of her all over the place. Since 2002, when he picked it up for $5.45 million, British pop star Robbie Williams has owned a glamorously appointed 10,000-plus-square-foot mansion that came up for sale in June (2016) at $11 million and is currently escrow to be sold to an unknown buyer at an unknown price.

The Hudsons, married more than a dozen years, have together and separately previously owned a handful homes in Los Angeles including an 11,000-plus-square-foot mansion in the Flats of Beverly Hills and a horseshoe-shaped home perched on a city-view hillside in the Hollywood Hills. However, as far as we can tell, the only other property currently in the former couple’s L.A. property portfolio is a nondescript bungalow next door to an auto repair shop on a dumpy street in the Verdugo Circle neighborhood near the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale.
