Maison Du Soleil
The $85 Million Home of BCBG Founder
Max Azria Is as Stylish as Its Owner
The legendary fashion designer Max Azria, the founder of the women’s clothing brand BCBG, is selling his estate in Los Angeles for $88 million. According to public records, Azria and his wife purchased the house in 2005 and spent $30 million on renovations, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Maison Du Soleil, one of the most magnificent LA estates, is elegantly situated on almost three picturesque acres in Holmby Hills – the crown jewel of LA’s Platinum Triangle. Designed in the 1930s by classic Californian architect Paul Williams, the iconic 60-room residence supremely merges classic architecture with contemporary design.
The legendary 30,000-square-foot compound is comprised of 17 beds, 22 baths and amenities suited to the most discerning taste – from a luxurious and sophisticated bath house to a 6,000-square foot movie theatre. Mansion is filled with unique touches, from a domed gold-leaf ceiling in one room to a “frozen waterfall” chandelier made up of 150,000 individual crystals.
The property’s exterior looks more resort than residence: There’s a glassed-in tennis court, an edgeless pool, a Moroccan-style bathhouse and spa, and five distinct gardens. There’s a “French garden” with a patio and freestanding fireplace.
The open floor plan seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living, with each room allowing guests to capture breathtaking views of the grounds, which feature five divine, enchanting gardens. With all of its scale and grandeur, the home remains warm, and inviting, making it a unique retreat for intimate family life yet poised for large-scale entertaining.
