A Music Executive Spins Into A Lofty Bel Air Contemporary
Located in Bel Air, the premier estate resembles a treehouse and it has attracted the attention of veteran music executive Sean Miyashiro, who purchased the property last month for $5.3 million. San Jose native and co-founder of 88rising, the Asian arts collective founded by Miyashiro, has produced the soundtrack for Marvel's "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" movie, as well as the soundtrack for Netflix's new original series "Justice League."
As a result of the major renovation that occurred in the 2000s, Miyashiro's home, which was originally built in the 1960s, underwent an extensive renovation under the direction of architect José Luis Palacios, who was also responsible for the federal courthouse in Downtown Los Angeles, the PaperMate pen factory in Santa Monica, and the Long Beach City Hall and Port. According to Rich Report, the property served as Palacios' longtime residence before it was flipped in about two years later to Miyashiro and his wife Judy Wan who bought it for $4.7 million from a non-famous buyer and lived there for another two years before selling it again to Palacios.
There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms in this two-level property situated on a hillside in the middle of a heavily wooded plot that stretches almost a half-acre. It is adorned throughout with African mahogany and hand-picked Italian Pietra of the Cardoso stone, and it boasts more than 4,300 square feet of living space on two levels. There are expansive expanses of glass as well as around 2,000 square feet of terraces throughout the building, allowing for a seamless integration with the surrounding trees.
Open spaces for living and dining that open to al fresco dining areas as well as a gourmet kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line Miele and Gaggenau appliances, Bulthaup cabinetry, and eat-in island are just some of the highlights of this property. The elaborate office space offers extensive built-in shelving and French doors that open onto a covered terrace in addition to a high-tech media room with high-quality audio and video equipment.
There is also a walk-in closet with glass wardrobe doors and a center island in the master retreat, as well as terrace access, a seating area, and a walk-in closet with glass wardrobe doors. Bathrooms are luxuriously appointed with dual vanities, dressing areas, spa tubs, steam showers, and dressing areas and feature a large variety of amenities. There is a two-car attached garage as well as a trellised lounge area bordering the lawn on the lot, which does not contain a swimming pool due to its location.
Despite the fact that Miyashiro is a newcomer to Los Angeles, he still owns the midcentury modern home he bought as a young adult, tucked away in lush Hollywood Canyons, which was purchased as a young adult.
