Hiroki Nakamura, the fashion guru best known for creating Japanese cult menswear label Visvim, is bringing his vintage style to the Hollywood Hills.
The designer purchased the Richard Neutra-designed Schaarman House in the Hollywood Hills West area for $7.5 million, or $525,000 under its initial $8 million asking price. It had been on the market since March.
The 3,378-square-foot house, which dates back to 1951, is a classic Neutra with wooden floors and ceilings and a stacked stone fireplace, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The property comprises four bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as an entry garden reflecting pool and a separate one-bedroom guest house on the opposite side of the site, according to the listing details.
Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland and Aaron Kirman of John Aaroe Group had the listing. Brian Courville and JB Fung of John Aaroe Group represented the buyer.
Nakamura’s label, launched in 2000, is a favorite of celebrities such as Kanye West and Rihanna, the Times said. [LAT] — Subrina Hudson
