About a month after listing their stylish Beverly Hills pad for $24 million, the celebrity couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have upsized to a brand-new abode in the 90210 for $17.5 million.
The duo closed on the home this week, just as they were putting a “Sold” sign on their previous compound, which is now in “contingent status,” according to realtor.com®.
The musician and the model have selected a larger, custom-built “design-forward” masterpiece, which was recently completed. And they haven’t strayed too far—their new digs are about 4 miles away from the home they’re selling.
The roomier new place, better suited to the needs of their growing family, is located on a private knoll in Beverly Hills.
It offers 10,700 square feet of indoor-outdoor living space, soaring ceilings, and walls of glass with pocket doors overlooking city-to-ocean views.
Developed by JB Builders, the new construction initially landed on the market for $18,725,000 in March, and then dropped in price in July to $17.95 million. It wound up selling for the slightly lower amount, leaving the couple with a tiny discount.
Given their hectic lifestyle, the two must have been sold on turnkey living. Perhaps the only choice they’ll need to make is where to place Legend’s piano.
And with seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, there’s plenty of room for extended family, staff, and any houseguests.
The beautiful property is certainly appealing. Entered from a landscaped motor court and dual garage parking, the main floor features a double-sided fireplace flanked by a formal dining area and a casual family room.
Once Teigen, who is pregnant with her third child, is off bedrest, she can continue her cooking chronicles on social media in the chef’s kitchen, which boasts a polished marble wall, premium Miele appliances, and an oversized, eat-in island.

Bedrest chronicles. @chrishimmm (who went from my first assistant, getting me llamas on a whim and any flowers you received in the past 5 years, she picked) to now, my head of brand operations for @cravingsbychrissyteigen! She has been here for it allll. Anyhoo, she isn’t kneeling and feeding me chocolate here. Well I guess she kind of is. But it’s for work!!! We have something verrrrrrrry cool coming and I CANNOT WAIT!!! I’ll be showcasing more of team cravings in the next few weeks, as the team has really come together and I am just SO proud of them and what we have built. My dream for everyone is they love what they do and feel fulfilled in every way. I want to laugh and be stupid and silly and have dumb parties because it’s Tuesday, celebrate every birthday with an hour nap or hour of television (@mindykaling) and make dreams happen on the daily. I love what @cravingsbychrissyteigen has become and I cannot wait for you guys to see what we have in store…in store…innnn store. Ah!!! Anyhow, @chrishimmm, my right hand, my brain holder. Thank you for all these wonderful years past, and the future to come!
What’s more, the layout includes plenty of entertainment options, with a game room and lounge with a bar, as well as a wine cellar.
Outside, a terrace borders a 100-foot saltwater infinity pool, a grassy lawn, and a poolhouse with a sunken fire pit.
Inside, they can catch a movie in the 500-square-foot media room with a projection screen.
Upstairs, find the master suite at the end of a 30-foot interior bridge that features suede panel walls, wide-plank oak floors, and multiside doors that open to the balcony.
The master retreat also includes dual walk-in closets for the two fashion mavens, as well as two baths.
Other features include three powder rooms, an office with walnut floating shelves, a laundry room, 16 security cameras, and smart-home technology.
Teigen has hosted a show on Quibi, published two popular cookbooks, and has a massive following on Instagram.
