‘The Fortress’ aka “King of the Hill’ is back on the market. Truly a one of a kind architectural designed by award winning architect David Lawrence Gray, AIA, the home has generated its fair share of controversy over the years. The home was originally built in 1996 for a German businessman named Peter Schindler and per the architect’s website it was built to address the clients desire for ‘privacy, rest and repose’ as well as serve as a entertainment venue to showcase the client’s extensive art collection. The result was a ‘modern acropolis’ with separate buildings joined by a large central art gallery that serves as the hub.
The home was last sold in Dec 2008 to DJ and producer Val Kolton who bought it from Rockstar Energy Drink founder Russ Weiner for $8M down from its original list price at the time of $14.995M. Weiner himself purchased the property in March of 2004 for $6.1M.
The home set high up in Hollywood Hills sits on a private, gated, roughly half acre promontory with 270 degree jetliner views of the city from downtown to the ocean.
The main house is comprised of three levels. The main level offers a dramatic entry with 60’ high ceilings, originally designed as an art gallery. The structure is comprised of concrete and steel with walls of glass offering dramatic views of the city. The main level houses the living, dining, state of the art kitchen designed by the Porsche Design Group, game room, family rooms and a guest bedroom. An office and powder room are located between the main floor and lower level.
The lower level is comprised of a large media/ screening room with bar, gym (originally one of the guest suites), sauna, 3 car garage and two guest suites. 2 separate changing areas with steps lead to an outdoor pool with accompanying 12 person spa.
The upper level is dominated by the master suite designed to feel like a yacht with burl wood added for warmth. The master bath has two separate showers and spa tubs.
A covered walkway connects to the guest house with a living room and two separate guest suites with their own baths.
