One of L.A.’s best known power couples has relisted one of their homes, in the famed Bird Streets area of the Hollywood Hills, for $16.5 million, The Real Deal has learned.

Interior design guru Bradley Bayou and longtime William Morris Endeavor powerhouse agent Mark Itkin have owned the Doheny Estates property, at 9233 Swallow Drive, since 2011, when they bought the site on which it sits for just $1.6 million, records show.

The property first hit the market last year for $21.85 million but it was delisted soon after.

The pair finished work last year on the sprawling contemporary, which features Athena limestone floors, hand-cut stone walls, retractable glass walls, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The living room appears to float on the infinity pool outside. There’s also a Zen garden, a yoga deck, a screening room and subterranean parking for six cars.

Itkin, a big name in the unscripted T.V. business, was best known for packaging shows such as “Deal or No Deal,” “Project Runway” and “Extreme Makeover.” He retired at the end of last year.

The pair also owns a getaway on the Marina Peninsula in West L.A. and dropped close to $5 million on a townhouse in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood in 2014.

Ben Bacal and Deanna Smith of Rodeo Realty have the listing.
