Will and Jada Smith’s $42 Million LA Home
This $42 Million, 9-bedroom Calabassas, California house spans 25,000 square foot, and sits on 150 acres. Designed by Stephen Samuelson, it started construction in 2003 and took 7 years to build. The adobe-styled interior is all custom designed, with rooms connecting to each other in a sweeping, fluent living area.
The house features many interesting unique features, such as a meditation lounge and a recording studio. The large garage fits eight cars. The grounds feature recreational activities such as a basketball court, volleyball court, tennis court, a large swimming pool, and a sunken trampoline. The house was featured in a 2011 issue of Architectural Digest. As of February 2014, the compound is listed for sale with an asking price of $42 million.
Included in the story are pictures of Smith’s recording studio (where Willow recorded her single “Whip My Hair”); two kids’ rooms, one with bunk beds, the other a canopy bed; and a great room with views out to the mountains. The entire house is decorated in neutral hues with eye-catching pieces like purple shag pillows and exotic tribal-printed chairs. Interior designer Judith Lance adds that everything in the house “had to look handcrafted but at the same time refined and sophisticated.”
The Mediterranean-style abode was designed by architect Stephen Samuelson, who says that the aesthetic of the home “is anchored in history and the various interpretations of adobe in Persian, Moroccan, Spanish, as well as Southwest American cultures.” Will Smith met Samuelson through Gene Hackman while the actors were shooting Wild Wild West in Santa Fe.
For the Pinkett Smiths, the most important consideration in designing the 25,000 square-foot home was that it exude intimacy. The nine-bedroom residence includes a meditation room as well as a circular floor plan which creates “an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love,” says Smith, who next appears in Men in Black III. The property also includes a lake, basketball and tennis courts and three golf holes. The couple reportedly moved into their dream house in 2004 after a seven-year-long building process.
