UPDATE, Aug. 3, 2018, 10:29 p.m.: A massive modernist spec house in the Hollywood Hills, with interiors designed by Lenny Kravitz, is off the market.

The so-called “Stanley House,” developed in part by Hilton & Hyland agents Branden and Rayni Williams, sold for $33 million cash to Merck scion Frank Binder and L.A. native Alexandra Schuck, who are expecting their first child. The couple is moving from a lavish pad in the European city-state of Monaco, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book.

The house hit the market in December for $38 million.

The 10,700-square-foot, four-story hillside home is most notable for its interiors designed by Kravitz, the musician-actor-designer. The project was designed by XTEN co-founders and husband and wife Austin Kelly and Monika Haefelfinger. It was Kelly’s last project before he died of cancer in 2015.

The sale is welcome news for Branden Williams, who’s been dragged over the coals by local opponents in neighboring Beverly Hills for his efforts to overturn a city ordinance that would drastically reduce the size limit on mansions there.

Kravitz’ glam interiors will reportedly remain — the buyers took everything, including the shag rugs, glass-topped dining room table, and an oddly belt-buckled master bed.

The five-bedroom, seven-bath home also has a massive infinity pool that overlooks the city and a basement-level nightclub called “disco Volante.” [Yolanda’s Little Black Book] – Dennis Lynch 

Correction: A previous version of this story omitted Monika Haefelfinger, who co-designed the home.
