Look, Brentwood's OK, even if OC would rather live in the Hollywood Hills -- the houses up there always looked cooler to her (and yeah, Beverly Hills with those huge houses is a bit too much; Bel Air way too much). Same for hotels: the Bel Air is wonderful but really too swanky with a OPEC oil baron vibe (Michael Jackson stayed there, after all), the Four Seasons kind of meh, the Peninsula in fact, yes, adorable. But still, despite the evident douchiness of the surroundings -- not to mention Bar Marmont, the epitome of douche -- the Chateau Marmont remains pretty cool, with all its ghosts (and bungalow 3 gives you a private parking space back on Marmont Lane, and possible John Belushi sightings). Desserts at Chateau Marmont are pretty delicious, too. The Sunset Tower is also a favorite destination -- restored to perfection, with a smaller pool but much better French fries (and those big bay windows).
Anyway, that's why Opera Chic turned down Esa Pekka's offer (he would make it a cool 4 mil, with a nice 100,000 dollars discount for all the time OC babysat his kids). Still, four.point.one is a good deal, if 5 1/2 baths are not too many for you (just restocking the Kiehl's soap bars and the toilet paper must be a bit of a nightmare):
The current house sits on 0.21 acres of land and features nearly 4,700 square feet of living space, with six bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths. Inside, there is a floating staircase, 2 1/2 story windows and a wine room. Outside is a garden courtyard, swimming pool and a spa. (We're told the spa bears an inscription from Jean Sibelius' "Finlandia.")
Now why would anyone keep bears in the spa and why would anyone want to think about Sibelius when naked and sweating.
