Will This Provocative, Steamy Video Sell a Sexy Modern Manse?

Share this:

There is no doubt that this Hollywood Hills luxury home is being promoted by the steamiest, sexiest, most controversial video yet. Viewers can’t seem to look away from the piece, entitled Happy Anniversary at 1709 Rising Glen. In fact, the two-and-a-half minute video, featuring a gorgeous home, a naked shower scene and a controversial kiss, is rapidly going viral. But will it sell?

My guess is that viewers who would be offended by this type of video would not be interested in this sexy, ultra modern, 1,051 square foot home, and would be better served by a Mediterranean Revival in the Valley. Not to knock the valley, of course — as you know, I live there myself. That $12.5 million asking price will go a lot farther up there. But the buyers that would be interested in 1709 Rising Glen are paying for the glamorous lifestyle almost as much as the real estate, and the video plays into that perfectly.

The home itself has the ideal glam L.A. location, nestled at the end of a private road in the hills above the Sunset Strip. It’s a gated view estate, designed for sophisticated living.

The gated 10-car motor court is overlooked by a clever vertical garden façade brimming with native succulents and there are two reflecting pools flanking the towering, custom made double-door entrance.

and custom cabinetry.

There are four bedrooms and seven baths total, including three master-like en suite guest rooms with wide plank oak floors, Fleetwood windows, custom walk-in closets and bathrooms finished in Dornbracht and Gessi fixtures, Ann Sacks designer tile and custom built walnut cabinetry.

But it’s the master suite that really catches the eye. It measures 2,000-square-foot and takes up the entire second love. Among it’s many scintillating feature are a fireplace, separate lounging area, versatile bonus room that can be used as a yoga studio or an office, and walls of glass that open to a large balcony overlooking the city-lights view.
