Olympic Medalist Puts West Hollywood Penthouse on the Market
In the heart of West Hollywood, a chic penthouse with unbelievable rooftop views is up for sale. Owned by Gus Kenworthy, an Olympic skier, actor and LGBTQ+ activist, the stylish home with an expansive two-level private rooftop deck will have you dreaming of LA living in the blink of an eye. On the market for $2.25 million, this three-bedroom, three-bath pad is a splendid find.
In 2018, Kenworthy made history as one of the first openly gay men on Team USA to compete in the Olympics, according to the BBC. The skier also went to the prestigious athletic games in 2014, earning a silver medal in Slopestyle skiing that year. Holding many talents, the 29-year-old even dabbles in acting and has starred in a few TV shows, including American Horror Story. So, like any rising star, it only makes sense that he found a home in Los Angeles.
After falling in love with this 1,789-square-foot penthouse, Architectural Digest reports that Kenworthy brought in designer Orlando Soria to help with the remodel. Beginning at the showroom level, the wide-stretching white palette and high ceilings make the heart of the home feel large and bright. In contrast with the neutral palette seen in the living spaces, the bedrooms reveal loads of color.
Beyond the refined yet vibrant interiors, the nearly 1,500 square foot terrace is where this duplex will win everyone over. Lined with custom railings and exotic Brazilian Ipe hardwood, it offers panoramic views from downtown Los Angeles to the Hollywood Hills and beyond to the ocean. Listed with Justin Alexander and Jeremy Lingvall of Compass, this abode is West Hollywood perfection.
