If you’ve ever dreamed of living large like 12-time Grammy Award–winner John Legend and his partner, model and television personality Chrissy Teigen, now’s your chance—but it will come at a steep price. The Hollywood power couple are looking to part ways with their multilevel residence in Beverly Hills, California, after moving their famous family of four to a slightly larger home in 2020.
John and Chrissy acquired the contemporary estate—which was formerly owned by singer-and-businesswoman Rihanna—in 2016 for $14,100,000. After revamping much of the interiors, the duo initially listed the property last fall for $23,950,000. However, the couple recently reduced their asking price by several million, and are now seeking $17,950,000 for the 8,520-square-foot home.
Upon arrival, a lavish foyer leads to a grand parlor with 33-foot-tall ceilings and a sculptural staircase. An open-plan layout merges the entryway with the main level’s primary living room, where floor-to-ceiling windows capture picturesque views of the surrounding canyons.
Another large seating area is situated on the opposite end of a double-sided fireplace in the center of the main room. Just a few steps away, a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen features a large central island with waterfall-style marble countertops and custom wood cabinetry.
While the interiors were previously dressed in an all-white palette, the famous duo collaborated with interior designer Don Stewart to add layers of warmth, using Chrissy’s Southeast Asian heritage as inspiration. Inside the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom residence, unique decorative touches include bespoke patterned ceilings from Thailand, clay and steel-rolled walls, and oak floors that were given a ceruse treatment (a technique that uses a lime wash to bring out the wood’s grain).
The principal suite includes a large brass-and-concrete fireplace, a showroom-like walk-in closet, and a bathroom with a black-marble soaking tub and a double shower. The primary bedroom’s private balcony overlooks the lush backyard, which John and Chrissy transformed into a resort-style oasis with a heated saltwater pool and hot tub, as well as a wood-burning oven and a grapevine-wrapped pergola.
The Beverly Hills estate, which was originally built in 1966, also includes a cinema, gym, and an Italian-inspired "glam room"— as well as a spacious children’s playroom with a built-in juice bar.
