Leave it to a clothing designer to exhibit exquisite taste in real estate and architecture. Calvin Klein has just scooped up a prominent spec home in L.A.’s famous Bird Streets, and paid a cool $25 million for the privilege. He won’t be purchasing any of the furniture or accessories the house was staged with, however. According to The Wall Street Journal, he selected a brand new, contemporary home because it’s a “blank canvas” he can do with as he pleases. And you can bet that fabulous furnishings in intriguing combinations will please him very much, thank you. We can’t wait to see the spread in Architectural Digest.

Of course the home is about so much more than plane white walls. The contemporary, five bedroom, seven bath mansion measures 9,300 square feet, and has views for miles, of the city, canyons, and on to the beach.

There are automated, retractable, floor-to-ceiling walls of glass to take advantage of those views, and to allow step-out access to the 65-foot infinity pool. And there are 13-foot ceilings in most rooms to add to the clean, spacious vibe.

Among the home’s other unique architectural features is an entryway with a bridge over a waterfall and reflecting pool,

a master bedroom with a fireplace and private terrace,

and a kitchen so modern it’s almost invisible.

There’s a luxurious, eight-car garage, which is unusually spacious in this part of the Hollywood Hills.

As with all posh homes in Hollywood, there’s a plush screening room–this one has seating for 12.

But I especially like the well designed, temperature-controlled wine room/wall off the dining room, which serves for storage as well as art.

While Klein will be investing a lot of time and resources into his new L.A. pied a terre, he still considers New York his home, and keeps a large apartment in Manhattan and a house in Southampton. He is selling his place in Miami Beach, however. He put it on the market in May for $16 million. His new Bird Streets home was finished in January, and had been listed for just south of $30 million, so it appears that Klein was able to negotiate a decent deal.
