Since 2003, Esquire Magazine has taken a different house and turned it into a design showcase every year, calling it the “Ultimate Bachelor Pad”. The house is used to host some of the year’s biggest charity and celebrity events and, since it gets terrific exposure, the property is later listed for sale.
Esquire’s Ultimate Bachelor Pad of this year is located in the Doheny Estates in the Hollywood Hills and it’s going to be listed for $18.9 million. The house has 9,000 square-foot and it was completely rebuilt from the ground up and newly outfitted by top designers.
The home was transformed into a modern indoor-outdoor lifestyle property for Esquire by the design eye of Elaine Culotti of Porta Bella. It features 11 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, an infinity pool, a two story pool, hot tub and gym, a $500,000 music studio with state of the art recording equipment, a $200,000 flight simulator that responds to body movements, an interactive 65″ multi-touch video wall from Obscura Digital featuring Hard Rock memorabilia and many, many other attractions.
The home will be premiered in October 15 with a charity event for the International Medical Corps, a global humanitarian relief organization. The event will be hosted by Sienna Miller, Jude Law and Felicity Huffman and many celebrities are expected to be in attendance.
All events hosted by the Esquire house are entered by invitation only and attract a mix of celebrities and high profile people but Esquire will also present this home to those who aren’t invited in. The DIY network will show in January a TV show on re-making of this Esquire House.
