Talk about a house that deserves an Academy Award for set design. This place has everything and more when it comes to a rockin' Hollywood party, including a two-story disco, IMAX theater, rooftop pool, grotto with a hot tub and a view of Tinseltown.
Perched above Sunset Boulevard, this custom home has hosted celebrities galore, from P. Diddy and Hugh Grant to Russell Simmons and Val Kilmer. (Not to mention Denise Richards and TV shows like "Love is in the Heir" and "It's Complicated.")
It's not too difficult to see what attracts stars to the home. Listing agent Patrick Norman of Rodeo Realty said its easy access to Sunset Plaza shops and boutiques makes this one-of-a-kind property so hot.
"And," he adds, "It's turnkey. Just bring your toothbrush -- swimsuit optional."
The British glamour photographer Richard Franklin has owned the Hollywood Hills home since it was built in 1990. Over the years, Franklin doubled the size, pushing the original house from 3,400 to 6,500 square feet and adding its unique features.
What puts the pulse to the place is its most unusual feature: A two-story disco with a programmable lighting and sound system. But then again, the three-table, Vegas-style gameroom isn't too shabby, either.
Each room carries out its own theme, from an entirely gold room complete with gilded furniture to an Egyptian-themed room with hieroglyphic-covered walls and a chic, sleek white room.
Franklin has rented his place to celebrities looking for the ultimate Los Angeles party pad and has also used it for photo shoots. Franklin's work can be seen on the walls in some of the listing photos included in this post.
The 4-bedroom, 6-bath home on nearly a quarter acre could continue to be used as the perfect party spot for the entertainment world's A-Listers. Or, for anyone with a flair for the dramatic, it could transition to a more traditional home.
