Home    Celeb Designer LM Pagano Selling Her Topanga Sanctuary for $4.5M

When you buy the home of a top celebrity designer, you don’t need to worry about the level of taste you’re going to be walking away with.

So it isn’t a stretch to say that designer LM Pagano‘s personal residence—a three-bedroom modern residence tucked up in L.A.’s scenic Topanga Canyon—is in turnkey condition.

For a buyer in search of ready-made style, the home’s on the market for $4.5 million.

The angular and artistic structure was designed by the architect Thomas Edig of Tuna Studio Architecture and completed in 1990. Pagano purchased the place for $2,365,000 in 2013 and spent three years getting the design elements just right.

Pagano told us that the home features a number of her signature stylings. One is a mix of new and old objects throughout the interior spaces. She has also infused the home with a feeling of comfort, with white walls everywhere, and her favorite velvet on display.

Sure enough, there are white walls visible in all the listing photos, along with antique carpets, modern light fixtures, unexpected and whimsical built-ins, as well as lush velvet drapes.

The detached studio is an especially interesting mix of old and new. Modern in architectural style, the interior is intriguing, with its variegated wood paneling on the walls and ceiling, and its timeless canyon views.

Even the home’s entry has a spot on the property’s list of unique design features. Pagano says the sculptural metal gates made by her husband are one of her favorite features.

“They are a permanent, gorgeous art installation, unique to this house,” she says.

Meanwhile, of course, the 3,640-square-foot main house has no shortage of highlights. Two of its three bedrooms are master suites, with their own bathrooms and private balconies. The multifaceted dwelling has several options for a fourth bedroom and creative use of space.

On 6 acres, the private yard has a dramatic infinity-edge pool that seems to float over a canyon. There’s also a poolhouse with a fireplace and outdoor shower at one end.

The grounds feature gorgeous gardens and over 40 fruit trees. Hiking trails branch out all over the hillsides, and a quaint bridge spans a seasonal brook.

With so much style and tranquility all on one property, we wondered how Pagano can part with the place.

“I haven’t figured that out yet,” she says. “But I truly thought I couldn’t leave my last house, and ended up loving this one even more. I am always up for the next adventure.”

Pagano’s designs for clients like Johnny Depp, Nicolas Cage, and Matthew Perry have been featured in a number of national publications.

Of her work with celebrities, she told us she loves to put the pieces together to create cool design.

“I am influenced by my clients and their personalities. I influence or guide them [after] I figure out the secret to their style,” she says.

“They may know the flowers they like, but not how to gather them up and make a spectacular bouquet. Or which details to leave out. I have to find the key and unlock it.”

Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen at Compass and Nancy Nelms at Snyder Sutton Real Estate have the listing.
