WEA on ArchitecturalDigest.com – CELEBRITY HOMES: WOLFGANG PUCK

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s classic California home is on the market. The Mediterranean-style villa is set in the serene yet centrally located Flats of Beverly Hills, between Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards. The lushly landscaped property is just up the hill from the legendary live music venue the Troubadour, and just below the buzzy Sunset Strip (home to Puck’s first Los Angeles restaurant, the original Spago, which opened there in 1982). Also nearby is another of the Austrian-born gourmet’s best-known restaurants, Cut. Puck’s empire has grown to include prepared foods, cookware, books, a top-level catering business, and, of course, a long list of beloved eateries.

Built in 1940, the spacious five-bedroom residence that Puck is selling feels bright and modern while also retaining its historic charm. From the elegant two-story entryway to the luxurious master suite upstairs, plus the sparkling swimming pool out back complete with a furnished cabana, the home is quintessentially Beverly Hills. The grounds include several outdoor seating areas to enjoy meals alfresco or just relax in the sun. Puck, a member of the Culinary Hall of Fame, has no doubt spent much time in the home’s open kitchen over the years, preparing meals for his family. Crisp white cabinetry and Carrara marble countertops define the space, which is equipped with commercial-style pull-down sink fittings and a dual range by Viking. Overlooking the tailored family room, it’s an ideal place to whip up some haute California cuisine.
