Lenny Kravitz and Stephen Muss’s Sunset Islands House Hitting the Market for $25 Million
A lavish Mediterranean Revival house on Sunset Island II once owned by singer Lenny Kravitz and currently owned by developer Stephen Muss (known for ‘saving’ the Fontainebleau Hotel in the 1970s and 80s, etc. and also turning it into kind of a meh Hilton) is going on the market for $25 million. The Wall Street Journal got the exclusive on the listing from the Jills, who are listing the property at 1800 W 25th Street. It has not hit the MLS yet.
Casa Kravitz/Muss has a movie theater, gym, elevator, and surprisingly only four bedrooms. According to the Journal, Kravitz bought the 11,270 square foot pile in 2001, shortly after its completion, for just over $8 million and “put his mark on it,” says one of the Jills, by bringing in sand to create a beach. And by ‘beach’ she more than likely means a really nice, glorified sand box, because a true beach leads to water, with waves lapping the sandy shoreline, and we’re 99.9% sure there are sea walls running the house’s entire 125 feet of waterfront. In 2005 Kravitz sold the place to Muss, its current owner, for $14.5 million.
