Today I was invited to give the world a glimpse into the life of James Goldstein. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Goldstein then prepare yourself for a lifestyle you couldn’t imagine even if the Sheik of Dubai started taking Tom Ford’s human growth hormones. If you are already a fan of Jimmy then there will be a few breaking news items in this post. Like 99% of this house, even the outdoor intercom is custom made. Nothing is store bought.
This music plays automatically in your head.
The vintage Rolls Royce that he still drives.
The turtle and koi pond. Apologies to other koi ponds that are reading this, a help line will be set up to defend against depression.
Coffee table books. When your coffee table is 15 square feet and made of poured concrete and stainless steel.
This is the architectual model of the Sheats Goldstein Residence. The smaller external unit is an art installation by artist James Turrell, best viewed at sunset.
Think of how long you have been cool. Now multiply that by 50 years. That is approximately how long James Goldstien has been defining what “super fucking cool” is.
He is the Ernest Shackleton of cool.
Puff Daddy once told me, “let’s see who gets to a billion first.” Standing in this house Puff I’m halfway there.
Fashion icon. King of L.A.
Yes this is Jackie Treehorn’s house in The Big Lebowski. I immediately regret not getting a photo of myself in the Dudes seat.
All the sky lights are automated. The house is built so you feel like you are outside.
Whatever you are good at, be so good every magazine wants to write about it.
These are production stills from an unreleased Nike Lebron ad. The world needs to see this ad, if you have access to it please post it on Your Tube.
That is a massive Ruscha. I asked if the intersection meant anything. “No, Edward J is a friend and it just goes with this house.”
The famous master bedroom. Equipped with fully automated glass walls.
This is as close as I could get. Pretty good for being deathly afraid of heights.
Ever see a custom Goyard hat box?
Ever see multiple Balmain custom jackets?
Form:100% glass sink mean no obstruction of perfect view.
Function: No drain pipe means waste water just flows out the exterior glass to water the plants.
The man is very famous for his hats. Lots of python, lots of exotics.
Yes of course those are windows into the pool. Which is usually filled with models.
Hidden automated hot tub.
View into the master bedroom from the hot tub.
Hidden throughout the 4 acre lot are manicured paths and concrete stairs. James is standing on a glass cantilever in his private jungle.
Large sculptures perfectly placed in the garden.
Labeled as “organic architecture” the house is barely visible from the front.
The larger entertainment complex is under construction on the same property. Dining facilities, office, nightclub, guest home, and tennis court.
This is the nightclub.
The library and also VIP room. Probably the closest I’ll ever get.
A fitting desk for a man that owns the city. The construction has taken 7 years… no ETA on completion.
For now, Mr. Goldstein will continue to be the NBA’s number 1 fan. With season tickets to the Lakers and Clippers he attends over 100 games per year, usually court side. He isn’t hard to spot, he is the one that isn’t dressed like anyone else, and has the hottest model next to him. Jimmy has recently started posting on social media. Be sure to follow him to get the eccentricity from the source.
I’ve only lived here for 3 years, after hanging with Jimmy Goldstein it really feels like there is no higher pinnacle to reach for. I have been to the mountain top, and there is an infinity tennis court on the top.
