Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Sanela Diana Jenkins earned a substantial profit on the $87 million sale of her Malibu beach house in 2021, landing a spot as one of the top 3 most expensive transactions in the LA area that year. Two years later, the philanthropist and entrepreneur has brought yet another lavish estate to the market, listing her luxurious seven-bedroom Hidden Hills home for $20.5 million.
The 4.4-acre property is not quite as extravagant as the Malibu one (which came with its own funicular installed by Kenny Rogers during his 1980s tenancy there), but the reality star still stands a good chance to turn a profit on the listing, seeing as she spent $13 million on it shortly after offloading her beach house. The contemporary-style home rests at the end of a gated cul-de-sac, where it enjoys views of the surrounding rolling hills and boasts celebrity neighbors including Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli and several Kardashians. The moody charcoal gray-sided home was built in 2019 by architect George De La Nuez with interiors by designer Meg Turner. Jenkins says she was aiming for an aesthetic that felt timeless and sustainable.
“There are so many moments of joy in this house: the way the light comes through the curtains, the soothing sound of the fountains outside, there’s a perfect balance,” Jenkins tells AD. “It’ll be hard to replace.”
A double-height foyer just beyond the front door features walls of glass, a floating staircase, and white oak chevron-patterned flooring. An open floor plan connects the great room with a spacious kitchen, which hosts a pair of stone islands, a walk-in pantry, and white oak cabinets. The formal dining space has an all-white beamed ceiling and a nearby temperature-controlled wine wall. Other highlights include multiple fireplaces, a gym, eight full bathrooms, a home theater, an outdoor barbecue area, and an infinity pool near a sprawling outdoor patio.
Sandeep Dhariwal and Tyrone McKillen of the Plus Real Estate Group at OFFICIAL hold the listing. Dhariwal considers the secluded nature of the lot and the elegant style of the home’s interiors to be among the most attractive assets for potential buyers.
“The architecture offers amazing scale and perfectly proportioned rooms, which are complemented by the most sophisticated interiors,” Dhariwal tells AD. “There’s a definite tranquility about the space.”
