Is This Elton's New LA Mansion?


Hoping to have more room for their expanding family, Sir Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, are moving from their high-rise condo into low-slung digs in the swank, star-studded Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills.


 Built in 1966, the gated property was most recently listed for $7.695 and has a three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom main house, a staff bedroom with its own bathroom, and a pool cabana with its own lounge, gym, and bath.

 Inside the "soft contemporary," as the brokerbabble gushes, are low-key details such as white-oak flooring; the "essence of Ralph Lauren" feel is quite the opposite of John and Furnish's condo, which was spiffed up by celebrity decorator Martyn Lawrence-Bullard with bright, full-wall murals of Keith Haring artwork and other such eye-popping details.

Floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the city, an open floorplan, and an all-white kitchen further contribute to the subdued feel. Outside, there's a plunge pool and a covered portico—you know, just the sort of relaxing place for things to be, uh, "All Quiet on the Western Front."
