A Supermodel House in the Hills

SELLER: Shannan Click
LOCATION: Mountcrest Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $2,146,000
SIZE: 2,058 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: Double steel doors open to reveal explosive city views and the excitement of wide open living spaces. Disappearing wall of glass give way to expansive decks merging interior and exterior. Huge eat-in chef's kitchen and built-in audio provide essential elements for entertaining in style. On another level, a secluded master suite with fireplace, marble bath, and walk in closet. 2 additional bedrooms and 1 and 1/2 baths.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Listen children, although we're working on getting the delicious dirt on the transactions of a couple of famous folks whose names appear in all the gossip glossies on a regular basis, the celebrity real estate pickings have been a bit slim lately so today we're going to go with a Hollywood Hills house owned by a gorgeous gal named Shannan Click who recently listed her L.A. digs with an asking price of $2,146,000 (lowered from $2,296,000).

We'd bet out long bodied bitches Linda and Beverly that many of the children will not recognize Miss Click's name but certainly y'all have seen her peering from the pages of magazines shilling fashion bits and pieces for high-brow companies like Dior Cosmetics, Emporio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana just to name a few. Fashion freaks will also know that Miss Click has cat walked for insanely expensive labels like Chloé, Balenciaga, Lanvin and Chanel Couture. Horny males and ladee loving females may also recognize her from when she snagged a much coveted spot to strut the runway in puny panties during the 2008 Victoria's Secret fashion show. And, of course, it should come as no surprise that like too many size zeros with photogenic faces, Miss Click wants to "act" and recently appeared in a film Your Mama has never heard of called Frost as well as played the itty-bitty role of "List Member #3" in a deeply disastrous movie called Deception.

A peep into property records shows Miss Click–who was once romantically linked to actor/prolific model and starlet humper Stephen Dorff–picked up her 2,058 square foot house in August of 2005 when she paid $1,700,000 for the dramatic Mountcrest Avenue dwelling.

Listing information indicates the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom two story house is entered through a heavy (and unnecessarily heavy handed) set of steel front doors that open to a loft-like (but low-ceilinged) living and dining room with blond wood floors and a section of windows that slide into the walls eradicating any barrier between the interior space and the wide deck that runs along the back of the house. The galley style kitchen features glossy white cabinetry, black granite counter tops, a full suite of high-grade stainless steel appliances including a vixenish Viking brand dishwasher, and and eating area with a curved wall punctuated by narrow slits of floor to ceiling glazing.

The lower floor includes two secondary bedrooms and the master suite where all the supermodel magic happens. In addition to a wood burning fireplace with lighted cubbies, the master suite includes a marble bathroom, walk-in closet and another large section of window that disappears into the walls when opened.

Like many houses in the hills, the front facade sits right on the road with only a small sliver of landscaping where a trio of palm trees flank the entrance and the 2-car garage. At the rear, deep and wide decks on both levels offer glittery and glam views and are connected by a spiral staircase that is probably a bit precarious for old people and/or booze hounds.

Records also show that in March of 2007 the New York based live mannequin paid an unknown amount of modeling money for a 2 bedroom apartment with a 600 sq. ft. terrace in an East Village co-op on the once dee-lightfully scrungy now dicsconcertingly stroller strewn Avenue A.

Cold soulless contemporary cliche - the perfect model house - meow

Have to disagree with that, but each to their own. This appears to be a warmly inviting and very comfortable home. I really like the sleekly elegant yet unpretentious vibe it has going on, and the views are spectacular - a great condo alternative. Yep, I've finally grasped the logic behind these L.A. homes with no yard, lol. Have a great weekend Mama & everyone, and thanks.

That glamour shots view of the facade makes it look much better than it actually is...

The architecture is more boring than bad, and you could probably do something with it, but the street's no great shakes and I think you can do better for that kind of money.

Might be a bit windy up there judging from the palm trees out front.

I heard that mel the former spice girl, a friend of a friend of hers bought her place, (reason why it sold so fast) anyone care to comment on that ?

Looks like a fab view. When all's said and done, you can paint this and that. But you can't replace the view.

Boring. Bland. Soulless. Looks like a suite at an Indian Wells golf resort. The best part was the picture of the wind whipping through the palm trees.

Do you think anyone has ever cooked anything in that kitchen??

Anon 3:33, totally agree. This is a great little place just waiting for someone new to move in and apply their own personality to. Whether you find the present decor appealing or not, the current owner had the right idea in exercising decorative restraint so as not to distract from the best part, the breathtaking views.

I like the lighting.

A half mil premium over the 2005 price? When L.A. homes are already at 2004 prices and falling? Enjoy all the price cuts to come, seller!

Except for that tacky rug in the bedroom, beautiful home!
