Power couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have listed their 8,250-square-foot Beverly Hills Home. The 41-year-old Oscar-winning singer and his 34-year-old model-turned-cookbook-author wife, bought the luxury home—formerly owned by singer Rihanna and originally built in the mid-1960s—in 2016.
They called in their long-time interiors guru Don Stewart, of LA-based Desiderata Design to transform the stark-white interior to a warmer look, better-suited to their growing family. The couple will welcome their third child next spring.
Top of the list for the Beverly Hills Home‘s makeover was a state-of-the-art, professional-grade kitchen to help with Teigen’s cooking videos and culinary creations. It includes no fewer than three ovens, two stovetops, twin refrigerators and miles of Italian quartz countertops. Fans of the former Sports Illustrated model’s Instagram posts will likely recognize the kitchen from its appearance in her cooking videos.
The other major upgrade? Closets. Grand, Rodeo-Drive-worthy closets for both Teigen’s and Legend’s high-fashion duds. Teigen’s closet—she calls it the “glam room”—features walls of glass-fronted wardrobes and plentiful shelving for her handbag and shoe collections.
The Beverly Hills Home’s special finishes include some dramatic ceiling, wall and floor treatments. In the living room, mandala-patterned designs from Thailand decorate the ceiling, the floor is made of ebonized cerused oak and a clay-and-steel-rolled effect highlights the walls.
Steps away in the formal dining room, the ceilings are adorned with delicate plaster mouldings with rich, coppery, hand-rubbed finishes on the massive sliding partition doors.
Naturally, the main living area features a grand piano, set alongside shelves showcasing Legend’s numerous awards—he’s the youngest entertainer to have achieved the elusive EGOT, short for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, for his remarkable catalogue of music that ranges from his songs “Ordinary People,” “All of Me” and “Green Light” to “Glory” from the film Selma.
All seven bedrooms are ensuite and have glass-edged balconies, with the sprawling master featuring high ceilings, along with a striking fireplace and jaw-dropping, distressed-gold-finished chimney front. In the master bath, there’s a free-standing stone tub in front of a large picture window.
The Beverly Hills Home also includes a well-equipped gym and cosy movie theatre with a popcorn machine and an impressive stock of candy jars. The Legend kids are Luna 2, and Miles, 1.
Outside there’s an expansive deck with stunning canyon views. Here you’ll find a heated saltwater pool, jacuzzi, chef’s kitchen and wood-fired pizza oven. Close by is a grapevine-wrapped, shaded pergola for al fresco dining.
