Fashion designer/underwearmonger Calvin Klein has just bought himself an expectedly stylish contemporary house in the Bird Streets of the Hollywood Hills, two doors down from the Facebook-suing Winklevoss twins. Like so many big-budget dwellings built on spec, the 9,300-square-foot mansion, designed by Paul-McClean, has a wealth of features designed to impress, says the Wall Street Journal: fully retractable walls of glass, 13-foot ceilings, a home theater with seating for 12, an entryway that “features a bridge over a waterfall and reflecting pool,” a 65-foot infinity pool, and a garage with space for eight cars. In all, the house has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms; the master bedroom has its own private terrace and fireplace. Though it was first listed back in January for just shy of $29.95 million, Klein purchased the place for $25 million. Meanwhile, he’s selling his long-time spread in Miami for $16 million.
