At one time it seemed that QVC had become B. Makowsky handbags all the time. Not so much anymore, but don’t feel sorry for Bruce.
The Wall Street Journal did a story Friday about Makowsky’s hood, which is the gated community of Beverly Park. The paper describes it as “one of the most exclusive, expensive places in Los Angeles, a land of exclusive, expensive places.”
There article describes Makowsky as a “handbag mogul and real-estate developer,” and has a photo of one of his palatial houses, which is described as an investment property.
He paid $13.45 million for it and is selling it for $25 million.
But wait, Makowsky has a second home in Beverly Park, one he actually lives in. It’s a Tuscan-style place.
Here is what he told The Journal about that cozy shack:
I could afford to live anywhere I want,” says Mr. Makowsky, who paid $22.6 million for his nine-bedroom, 15-bathroom home in 2010, according to public records. “This is a little slice of heaven.” He estimates his property, which he’s extensively renovated, is worth $100 million today.
So who else lives in this LA neighborhood? Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone and Mark Wahlberg, to name a few folks.
