The scion of Bijan, one of Los Angeles’s most exclusive—and expensive—menswear stores, is selling his Spanish-style cottage for $2.95 million.
Nicolas Bijan, the 26-year-old son and successor of late celebrity fashion designer Bijan Pakzad, put the remodeled two-bedroom home at the border between Beverly Hills and Hollywood West on the market last week.
Mr. Bijan, head of what has been called “the most expensive store in the world,” bought the gated, partially renovated home in 2015 from “Million Dollar Listings Los Angeles” agent Josh Flagg for $1.9 million, according to property records, and set to work remodeling alongside his decorator girlfriend and Beverly Hills socialite Roxy Sowlaty.
They redid the classic red-tile roof and chimney on the ivy-covered home, added a steam room and renovated the bathrooms, Mr. Bijan told Mansion Global through brokerage Sotheby’s International Realty. Sotheby’s agents Drew Mandile, Brooke Knapp and Dean Mandile are listing the home.
The menswear heir enlisted Ms. Sowlaty, who was a main cast member on E!’s reality TV show “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” to decorate the 2,000-square-foot house.
“Her main objective was to create a masculine yet beautiful space that could be utilized by the couple and their group of friends,” the owner said in an email through Sotheby’s.
Mr. Bijan inherited Bijan, the luxury store on Rodeo Drive and its eponymous fragrance line after his father’s death in 2011. He’s since launched a campaign to modernize the brand, which counts five U.S. presidents as well as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Russian President Vladimir Putin among its clientele.
He and Ms. Sowlaty aren’t the first Hollywood rich kids to call the address home. Director David Katzenberg, son of DreamWorks Animation co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, owned the home form 2006 to 2013, property records show.
The 1920s house is now filled with contemporary luxury finishes, including bookmatched marble slabs in the bathrooms and a pergola-covered patio space with a built-in, sunken hot tub.
Ms. Sowlaty’s interiors are a trendy mixture of neutral fabrics paired with metallic accents and pops of color, such as a palm-leaf wallpaper in a bathroom, images of the home show.
While Mr. Bijan was away traveling in Asia, Ms. Sowlaty gutted the backyard, converting a garage into a home gym and creating an open-air cabana. He was originally against changing anything in the backyard, but it’s now his favorite part of the home, he said via Sotheby’s.
He uses the gym she created daily and enjoys watching football and smoking cigars on the terrace, he said.
