Never before on the market, the longtime home of late French rocker Johnny Hallyday recently listed in Pacific Palisades for $18 million. The Los Angeles Times reported that Hallyday, who died in 2017 at age 74, purchased the 0.44 acre property in 2009 for $4.5 million and had his nearly 12,000 square foot residence built a year later. Hallyday was known to many as the “French Elvis” and is commonly credited for having brought rock and roll to France. The custom built residence features all the needs of modern day living with a striking main floor with two-storey entry, large dining room, formal living room, library, family room, bar and chef’s kitchen with breakfast area.
There are 7 bedrooms and 8.5+ bathrooms including the master retreat with fireplace, study, 2 walk-in closets, a spa-like ensuite and balcony overlooking the canyon. Additional features include a basement with 2 guest rooms, a large recreation area, 18 seat home theatre and gym. The 0.44 acre property is landscaped with mature trees and features a Bali-style infinity pool and outdoor kitchen with built-in BBQ. It’s on the market for $18 million with Stephan Illouz of Coldwell Banker.
