For decades, Charles Park has explored the elements that make great fashion: colors, textures, lines, light, shadow, materials. Now, Park is exploring a new medium: custom home design. Check out his foray into real estate with this massive dream estate located at 1231 Lago Vista Drive in Beverly Hills.
Park spared no expense in shaping his first home, and every inch of the seven-bedroom, eleven-bath residence reflects a unique vision. A stunning six-foot Mooi chandelier, two sets of floating staircases, and an original Andy Warhol greet guests at the entrance. Over a million dollars in furnishings by B&B Italia, Minotti, and Gandia Blasco are offset by the latest in home inspirations and technology, including 33 soaring floor to ceiling Rimadesio Italian glass magnetic doors. Unique Delta Lighting from Belgium — 400 lights at $1,000 per light — is fully dimmable for endless ambience effects. Fully integrated Crestron automation and environment controls make adjustment of all household systems — audio/visual, lighting, shading, IT, security and HVAC — as easy as the push of a button.
For the main level and all baths, Parks selected Nano Glass, a scratch- and stainproof stone composite slab. All carpeting is custom-sized and hand-knotted. The oversized elevator is fronted by custom L'invisible bank vault doors, and even the air conditioning vents are configured vertically for a sleek, seamless appearance. Other highlights include a 600-bottle floating backlit wine cellar that opens with a thumbprint and a state-of-the-art home theater featuring a Sony 4K projector and a Dolby Atmos sound system, one of just 30 in the country.
"This is a family home, not just a party house," Park says. "My goal wasn't to impress a buyer walking through for an hour. Each decision was made to delight the buyer who will live in this house for a lifetime."
Park has built a California fashion empire based in Downtown LA. His firm's labels, Pure Sugar, Sugarlips, Cream & Sugar and Jonesy, are coveted by customers of top retailers worldwide, including Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's.
