Renowned chef Wolfgang Puck is packing up his leftovers, listing a Beverly Hills house for $8.495 million.
The well-outfitted kitchen of the Mediterranean-style villa may seem on the modest side by professional standards, but it has served him for a dozen years. The Spago founder bought the property for $3.675 million.
Set on nearly a quarter acre on a tree-lined street, the 6,025-square-foot house is surrounded by gardens, lawn and mature trees. A swimming pool and outdoor living areas with plenty of room for al fresco dining complete the grounds.
Indoors, a two-story entry with a wrought-iron railing staircase sets the tone. Thick plaster walls, beam ceilings and a stone fireplace are among architectural details.
Living spaces include formal dining room, a library/office, a family/great room, a media room, five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and a powder room.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency is the listing agent.
Puck, 66, and his Wolfgang Puck Cos. have restaurants, cookbooks and a product line.
So where does the restaurateur cook in his off hours? He bought a nearly 12,300-square-foot mansion in the Holmby Hills area of Beverly Crest two years ago for $14 million.
