Big pharma heir David Sackler has snapped up a funky 1980s architectural home in the posh Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Mr. Sackler—whose father, Richard S. Sackler, headed Purdue Pharma and famously developed pain opioid Oxycontin—bought the 10,000-square-foot mansion centered around a glass-roofed atrium with trees growing out of the tile for $22.5 million, according to property records.
He closed on the home at the end of January through a company linked to his accountant, according to newly available public records. TMZ first reported the buyer’s identity.
The two-story, white stucco and slate-roofed home is filled with quirky architectural details that bring light into the interiors. The home, which hit the market a year ago, boasts five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
A thick concrete staircase sits at the center of the mansion's double-height atrium. The sunny room has several trees shooting up toward the glass ceiling as well as sculpture and interior windows that give the feeling of an outdoor courtyard, according to images of the home.
The staircase leads to a master suite that encompasses nearly the entire second floor, including double bathrooms and a private deck with panoramic views, according to the listing with James Respondek of Sotheby’s International Realty. The seller’s agent did not immediately return request for comment.
Skylights also feature in a sunny dining nook and bring light into a luxurious-looking bathroom, images of the home show.
Amenities include a media room, game room and gym.
Mr. Sackler, 50, is the president of an investment firm that manages part of his family’s pharma wealth. He did not immediately return a request for comment.
