From that situation to now, it has been a difficult ride for the star, and hence, she has proved to be a self-made person. Out of the properties that she owns, the famous properties are Hollywood hills homes and Malibu’s beach house.
Hollywood Hill gem
Halle Berry purchased this house in 1994. It is a Mediterranean style villa, covering one-third acre of a plot. The villa provides magnificent views of the city and the canyon. The villa was built in 1989 with spacious open plan designs. Recent upgrades have been done. The street view gives a subtle stateliness with a trio of garages, which have been proved a valued amenity amidst the avenues situated in the Hollywood Hills. The living spaces cover 4300 square feet area. The villa is oriented away from the streets to create privacy and seclusion from the city yet it provides very welcoming views of the city.
Halle Berry has lived for more than a decade here. The villa has a patio surrounded by a streamlined pool and spa. From here, beautiful vistas toward Beverly Hills and beyond can be seen. There is a long rectangular lawn by the private side yard, which is well protected by two-storeyed walls made up of glass.
The interiors of the villa are quite fascinating. Since Halle’s house has an open plan design, there are expansive common spaces with dining areas and a kitchen, on the first floor. In the rear part of the house, there are floor to ceiling window treatments on walls to obtain the best views of the city. The fluidity in the structure makes it a more ideal space for entertainment and liveliness.
The second floor is accessed via a grand stone staircase. The floor comprises private living areas with master bedrooms and a hallway, which look out onto the lush greens and breathtaking panoramas of the city. The other master bedroom has vaulted ceilings and a balcony which opens up towards the Pacific ocean. Both the bedrooms are stone finished. Some of the walls display fine arts, also including one or two Oscar statuettes.
