Professional golfer Shigeki Maruyama has chipped the asking price on his modern compound in Bel-Air to $16.5 million, down from $18.495 million.
The property, which enjoys panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles, the Pacific and the Stone Canyon Reservoir from a 3.2-acre promontory, originally came to market last October for $19.8 million.
The contemporary home, designed by L.A.-based architect Ted Tokio Tanaka in 1986, features elaborate geometries intended to maximize space and volume. Interiors framed in floor-to-ceiling glass include a central hall, a gym, guest quarters, a media room, an office, a sauna, six bedrooms and nine full bathrooms.
Multilevel walkways bridge various sections of the property while also creating complementary balconies and outdoor terraces. A central courtyard, a pool and a tennis court also reside on the grounds.
Tanaka returned to the property in 2008 to oversee a remodel that included the addition of a glass-enclosed elevator and a staircase servicing each of the master suite’s three floors. The exterior and the interiors were also updated at that time.
The Japanese golf pro paid $7.6 million for the home in 2004, according to The Times. Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency is the listing agent.
