The iconic estate of the late Persian designer Bijan Pakzad, best known for his Rodeo Drive by-appointment-only fashion showroom, has sold for $9.8 million. The estate at 100 Copley Place was put on the market in June for $12 million.
Built in 1993, the 12,000-square-foot gated Italianate villa is situated in Beverly Hills and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, a floating staircase and stone columns. The manicured grounds include a pool, dining patio and a one-bedroom guest house. A 5,000-square-foot parking structure beneath the estate fits up to 20 cars. The grand dining room features a $200,000 chandelier made from Bijan's signature perfume bottles.
The menswear and fragrance designer, who died in 2011, designed and decorated the estate. Beverly Hills real estate agent Jade Mills, who serves as estates director at Coldwell Banker, conducted the sale. The listing agent was Brenda Cooke of Hilton & Hyland.
