Calvin Harris has recently sold his Beverly Hills mountain estate for $25 million.
The property’s white wooden façade exhibits a traditional, East Coastal aesthetic; however, this home’s interiors pay homage to California's style. The contemporary estate includes herringbone-patterned hardwood floors, a marble wet bar, and a quartz staircase – all of which crown the property as one of the world’s best homes.
Scottish-born DJ Calvin Harris is best known for his songs I Need your Love, One Kiss, and This is What You Came For. So far, he has been awarded an American Music Award, a Grammy Award, and two Brit Awards.
Whilst the DJ’s home sat in the Californian hills; there remained remnants of his Scottish roots through hints of tartan and deer motifs throughout the space.
Alongside these quintessential decorating ideas, the space pay tribute to modern design staples, most primarily in its main living space. Here, Calvin used ‘floating’ open-shelf bookcases to colorize the neutral-hued space. The grand room similarly offers lessons in using houseplants to interrupt a white, wooden palette and invite the outside indoors.
The listing, which was held by Josh and Matt Altman of the Altman Brothers Team (opens in new tab) at Douglas Elliman, praised the home for its ‘premier craftsmanship’ that sourced the finest materials to achieve the finished look.
The sophisticated living space flows into a large kitchen – complete with twin kitchen islands and subtle-toned cabinetry that maintains the scheme of the house (and feeds into our white kitchen ideas).
Beyond the four bedrooms in the main house, there are six more bedrooms and 12 bathrooms spread across the five structures. These include a two-story guesthouse that Calvin Harris used as a recording studio. Also on the estate is a separate security building and a detached garage that leads to a movie theater and a fully-stocked gym.
The property also comes complete with an ‘entertainer’s dream’ garden – brimming with luxury garden ideas. Notable assets include a large swimming pool, sports court, and a pergola with a BBQ center – all of which sit in the shade of the eucalyptus trees.

According to the Ibizan press (opens in new tab), the DJ has traded his Cali-cool lifestyle for a life on the Spanis island. He currently owns a 138-acre ranch in the stylish municipality of Santa Eulària, where he grows vegetables and produces wine and farm-to-table meals.
