Fashion Designer Eva Chow’s Art-Filled Megamansion Wants $65M in Holmby Hills
Renowned fashion designer and all-around leader in culture and philanthropy Eva Chow is still attempting to sell her lavish Los Angeles home. Most recently placed on the market in October of 2020, the massive structure first listed in 2018 and has asked at times $78 million and $69.9 million, according to Mansion Global. Last year’s price remains unchanged, however, with the 30,000-square-foot megamansion currently asking $65 million.
Located in the neighborhood of Holmby Hills, the property was picked up by Chow and her then-husband and Mr. Chow founder Michael Chow in 1991 for $3.5 million. They then built the home that stands today from the ground up. Sometime after the Chows’ divorce, the fashion designer, often referred to as the “Culture Queen of Los Angeles,” became the sole owner of the enormous mansion filling 1.1 acres.
Inspired by Madrid’s Reina Sofia Museum in both style and scale, the abode is all soaring ceilings and neutral palettes in order to serve as a backdrop for collections of art. Make no mistake, the gallery spaces are not purely museum-like—character comes with 400-year-old Moorish columns, fireplaces, and room-by-room color schemes complementary to the artwork populating the walls.
Including a three-story guest house as well, the gated estate offers 9 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and 4 half-bathrooms, as well as a home cinema and outdoor ballroom. Seemingly destined for another collector or entertainer, Tomer Fridman and Carl Gambino of Compass hold the opulent listing along with Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland.
