A deep-pocketed entity linked to Albert P. Behler of New York real estate giant Paramount Group — a major owner and operator of office properties in New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco — has purchased a revamped midcentury-modern mansion in Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates enclave. The seller was a lesser-known real estate investor, who listed the place early last year for $17 million. The price dropped to $15.5 million and then $14.8 million before it ultimately reached the buyer’s hands for the discounted but still substantial sum of $13.8 million.

Originally built in 1966, Behler’s newly acquired compound recently underwent an extensive remodel. Resting on a prime nearly half-acre rim lot, and nestled securely behind gates, the home features four bedrooms and eight baths spread across nearly 6,500 square feet of light-filled living space. Expansive walls of pocketing glass doors provide for seamless indoor-outdoor environs, and also offer panoramic views spanning from Downtown L.A. to the Pacific Ocean, with ritzy amenities including a movie theater, wet bar, wine cellar and an executive office with its own entrance

The flat-roofed structure greets with a landscaped motorcourt boasting fire features and a hedged private driveway. Once inside, highlights include a fireside great room, plus a sleekly designed gourmet kitchen outfitted with a center island, high-end appliances and a breakfast nook. A stylish wet bar ideal for entertaining abuts a formal dining area accented by a curved wine cellar set behind glass.

A luxe master suite has a two-way fireplace, dual walk-in closets and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the backyard, along with a spa-inspired bath equipped with an oval soaking tub and a large standalone shower. Outdoors, the lushly manicured grounds host an al fresco dining patio, a firepit lounge and built-in barbecue, plus a waterfall pool flanked by spa and sundeck. There’s also a three-car garage.

In addition to his new Trousdale Estates house, Behler owns a $33.5 million condo on the 35th floor of New York’s ultra-exclusive 220 Central Park South that he bought in 2019; other high-net-worth residents at that Robert A.M. Stern-designed building include Brazilian construction billionaire Renata de Camargo Nascimento, Taiwanese billionaire Joe Tsai, musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, and hedge fund mogul Ken Griffin — whose $238 million penthouse remains the most expensive private residence in the United States.

Tomer Fridman of Compass and Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland served as the listing agents for the Trousdale Estates home; Alexa Kort of Rodeo Realty repped the buyer.

Less than a month ago, Michael Sugar put his $6.3 million ocean-view mansion in the OC community of Dana Point up for sale. Now the Oscar-winning producer and his wife Lauren have decided to clean house entirely in California — the couple is also selling their Colonial-style main residence in Los Angeles. The asking price is nearly $14 million for those stately digs, which the Sugars picked up back in 2018, paying $9 million to previous owner Don Hankey.

Built in the early 1900s for produce wholesaler Thomas O’Neill, and designed by architect B. Cooper Corbett, the home’s exterior retains its historic charm, though the interiors have been fully modernized. Ritzy amenities of the three-story, 11,000-square-foot mansion include a plush movie theater and billiard room with wet bar and mirrored gym, plus a lounge room that spills out to a covered terrace ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining.

Resting on a nearly half-acre parcel, and separated from the street and sidewalk by a wide walkway flanked by a manicured lawn, the red brick and white stucco structure is crowned by a trio of dormer windows. The front door holds court beneath a columned and arched portico, and opens into sun-drenched interiors punctuated throughout by stone accents, rich hardwood floors, intricate moldings and coffered ceilings, along with a Crestron home-automation system.

A double-height foyer greets and displays a crystal chandelier and grand wraparound staircase. From there, a spacious formal living room boasts a fireplace; and a gourmet kitchen is outfitted with custom cabinetry, marble countertops, an eat-in island, and Wolf and SubZero appliances. A separate butler’s pantry leads to a huge blush-colored formal dining room, and an adjoining fireside family room has French doors that open to the backyard.

Upstairs, a library/office is adorned with ingrained shelves, while the sumptuous master retreat features a fireplace, private balcony, showroom-style closet, and marble bath equipped with dual vanities and a soaking tub. As for the picturesque backyard, you’ll find a firepit area, built-in BBQ, children’s playhouse, and large rectangular pool and spa. There’s also a detached guesthouse with a full kitchen, living room and bath.

Sugar is CEO and founder of Sugar23, a management, production and private-equity company with a multiyear Netflix deal. He garnered a Best Picture Oscar for “Spotlight,” and Peabody Awards for the TV shows “The Knick” and “Dickinson.” Additional credits include “13 Reasons Why,” “The Laundromat,” “Maniac,” “The Report” and “Worth.”

Oren Mordkowitz of Pinnacle Estate Properties serves as the listing agent.

Featuring removable Swooshes.

The Nike SB Dunk is poised to have another huge year in 2022 with several collaborative styles on the horizon.

One of the pairs that are coming is this all-black makeup of the SB Dunk Low designed in partnership with the skate and surf label Gnarhunters. Newly leaked images from both Gnarhunters on its Instagram story and leaker account @Die_sel666 show that the collab will feature an unconventional terry-like material combined with matching nylon overlay panels on the upper. The collab also features removable Swooshes while Gnarhunters branding appears on the tongue and heel tab. Breaking up the stealthy execution is a yellow insole and a white outsole.

Prior to this collab, Gnarhunters and Nike SB joined forces in 2019 for the first time to deliver a similarly styled SB Blazer Mid.

Despite an early look, release info for the Gnarhunters x Nike SB Dunk Low hasn’t been announced by the brands, but check back soon to Sole Collector for updates.
