PHOTOS: Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Sell L.A. Mansion for $17M After a Year on the Market
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have sold their Beverly Hills home after almost a year on the market.
The luxurious home, located in a gated community just north of Sunset Boulevard, was first listed for $23,950,000, with Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman, as PEOPLE reported in August 2020. They originally found a buyer for the home about a week after it was listed, but the deal fell through, Peck told the Wall Street Journal. Now, PEOPLE can confirm, the manse has sold for $16,808,000, and the buyer was represented by Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Realty.
The couple bought the property, which was formerly owned by Rihanna, for $14.1 million in January 2016, according to WSJ. They then tapped their longtime interior designer, Don Stewart, to imbue it with their personal style.
PEOPLE confirmed that Teigen and Legend purchased a new home, another Beverly Hills property, where they currently reside, for $17,500,000 in September 2020.
Teigen shared that she and her family were selling their original home in August 2020 via Instagram Stories, a week after announcing they she and Legend were expecting their third child. A source told PEOPLE at the time that they came to the decision to sell the house following the baby news, sharing, "With a third child coming, they want a house they can grow into."
On October 31, the couple shared that they had tragically experienced pregnancy loss, mourning the loss of their son one month after announcing their pregnancy. The couple also shares daughter Luna, 5, and son Miles, 3.
The 8,520-square-foot home boasts seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It features a glam room, a movie theater (with a popcorn machine!), a private gym and a playroom.
There's also a chef's kitchen, where Teigen spent time working on her Cravings collection; and two massive, main closets that mimic designer showrooms.
The home's design also pays homage to Teigen's family's Southeast Asian roots: the hand-carved, patterned ceiling in the living room was imported from Thailand.
The towering room is bright and airy thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and housed the piano Legend spent quite a bit of time at during early quarantine — as evidenced by his and Teigen's Instagram posts. It sat beside four shelves full of awards the EGOT winner has claimed over his career.
Located on a large lot, the grandeur of the home continues outside with an expansive backyard perfect for entertaining.
A saltwater pool with a Jacuzzi was a favorite place for the kids to play. There's also "wood-burning oven, chef's grill and grapevine-wrapped pergola" with space to dine al fresco, according to the original listing.
