Sports Anchor Emmanuel Acho has just purchased a new home in the Hollywood Hills for $6.325 million. The price includes the main property – for $6.075 million – and the adjoining plot of land for an additional $250,000.
Emmanuel Acho is best known as a former linebacker who played in the National Football League before working as an analyst for Fox Sports 1. In February this year, he also hosted The Bachelor: After the Last Rose on ABC.
This architecturally-designed haven overlooks one of the most famous neighborhoods on the West Coast, making it one of the world's best homes. Here, we tour the magnificent property.
Emmanuel Acho's home is a trove of luxe decor inspiration – exhibited primarily through its floor-to-ceiling glass windows that create a flow between indoor and outdoor living. This is perhaps most evident in the open-plan living space, whose blue and white scheme has reset the bar for future living room ideas.
The living room leads to an equally contemporary chef's kitchen that is equipped with Modulo Cucine cabinets, Miele and Thermador appliances, and a breakfast bar that separates the indoor and outdoor dining areas.
Meanwhile, the upstairs showcases a host of fashionable bedroom ideas – most especially through the primary bedroom suite. This space comes complete with two walk-in closets and a sitting area, along with a private bathroom with a soaking tub. The three additional guest suites similarly include spacious closets and en suite bathrooms suites.
Like all rooms in the home, the bedrooms boast views across the iconic Los Angeles skyline, though this vision is best enjoyed from the roof garden and swimming pool. The exterior also has an outdoor dining room that is perfect for entertaining when the sun sets above the City of Angels.
Plus, the adjacent land offers further space for Emmanuel Acho to experiment with urban garden ideas in one of the sunniest spots in the country. However, only time will tell what the former linebacker will do with the space.
