Inside the $48 Million Barnhouse

Taking the concept of rustic chic to the next level, a barnhouse in Beverly Hills has hit the market for a cool $48 million. The sprawling 7-bedroom property on Benedict Canyon Drive includes standout features that include a 30-foot-high front door, a parking area large enough to accommodate 50 cars, a walk-in closet that looks like an exquisite boutique, and a state-of-the-art screening room. Moving outside, the home sits on a 2-acre plot that features a rectangular swimming pool and manicured gardens. The one thing that stands out but doesn’t quite fit in is the giant statue by artist Brian Donnelly. The estate once was the property of Kiss singer Gene Simmons, who told it off in 2021 for $16 million. An 18-month renovation required stripping it to its studs, as well as replacing the tennis court with 10-car garage. So, if you have $48 million to spend, you can live like a rock star.
