Fashion Photographer Steven Meisel Lists Trousdale Estates Home for $13 Million


Renowned fashion photographer Steven Meisel has listed his mid-century modern home in the private community of Trousdale Estates for $13 million. Built in 1963, the 6,350-square-foot residence has three bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Meisel first came to love the luxury residential community when he was searching for the perfect backdrop for a Versace fall/winter 2000 ad campaign.

“I was looking at houses in Los Angeles, and I fell in love with Trousdale Estates,” he told Architectural Digest.

The luxury community was developed in the 1950s and 60s by Paul Trousdale and has since become a popular enclave for Hollywood stars, including Frank Sinatra, Danny Thomas and Dean Martin. In 2001, Meisel purchased his own piece of Trousdale Estates for $2.1 million and hired restoration expert Marmol Radziner and interior designer Brad Dunning. Situated on 1.5-acres, the gated compound, which was originally designed by George MacLean, includes one full bedroom private guest house, large outdoor dining area, a full-sized pool, a koi pond, panoramic views, a main residence with three en-suite bedrooms, two offices, two powder rooms, two fireplaces, and more, according to the listing.
