An overview of Pharrell Williams' $9.2 million L.A. estate

Venture across the ridges of the Hollywood Hills and soon enough you'll stumble upon the awesomeness of this stylish and slender, low-slung $9.2 million home that used to belong to Pharrell Williams until now. The Los Angeles Times explained that it took the singer of the 2013 banger "Happy" three years to sell the home for $2 million more than he bought it in 2015, though for $3 million less than the asking price.

According to Mansion Global, the glass-and-window masterpiece overlooking the city lights of Hollywood was built in 2007 by architect Hagy Belzberg, who was awarded by the American Institute of Architects for the project. The stunning L.A. home has an enviable skate park where the new owner can catch some air, plus a modern outdoor movie theatre for weekend relaxation. The New York Post added that the new owner has access to an all-exclusive spa, a 70-foot infinity pool, and multiple decks for entertainment outside.

Mansion Global gave further details on the 6,000-square-foot property, identifying the main building with a formal living room that has a large fireplace, five furnished bedrooms, five bathrooms, one half bathroom, and a standard chef's kitchen. But guess what? This isn't the only home that the most awarded producer of 2000 has sold, as will be revealed in the next section.

For Pharrell Williams, the recent $2 million profit he made on the $9.2 million L.A. estate may be considered as a recovery (and more) over the loss the pop/R&B musician and producer took on the 2020 sale of his Beverly Hills mansion. According to Architectural Digest, Williams bought the ultramodern glass mansion from the world-renowned producer and American actor Tyler Perry for the whopping sum of $15.6 million in 2018, but ended up listing it for $16.95 million and selling it for $14 million (via Zillow).

According to the Los Angeles Times, the 17,000-square-foot property in Beverly Hills has a 200-foot driveway that leads straight to the compound, where you would be enchanted by a grotto-style swimming pool, splashy waterfalls in a scenic lawn, koi ponds, and a tennis court. Inside the dramatic, glass-covered home itself is a sculptural staircase that links a floor with 10 bedrooms to an atrium that features indoor fountains.
