Oakley Founder’s $100 Million Brutalist Mansion Is A Proper Bond Villain Lair

We’ve used the term “Bond villain lair” more than a handful of times to describe opulent properties that catch our attention. But it’s safe to say none come close to the brutalist mansion of Oakley founder James Jannard.

Not long after selling his record-breaking US$210 million (AU$311 million) Malibu home — which eclipsed the mansion acquired by Beyoncé and Jay-Z last year — Jannard has now listed this strikingly angular Beverly Hills residence for US$68 million (AU$100 million).

Essentially a fortress perched on the hillside overlooking West Hollywood, 410 Trousdale Pl enjoys a two-acre block; and clearly draws inspiration from the monolithic figures of Stonehenge, crafted almost entirely from cement, aluminium, and glass.

Boasting five bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and 18,000 square feet of internal space, the numbers alone simply do not capture what makes this property so special.

Upon entry through the enormous double gates, you’re greeted by a colossal circular driveway surrounded at all sides by the vertical concrete blocks that make up the home’s exterior. Equal parts private and intimidating, the actual mansion itself is guarded by a five-metre doorway; which conceals a foyer that continues through the living space, and out towards the spectacular infinity pool.

High ceilings, bare walls, bare floors, as well as custom-made furniture (consistent with the cement motif), an industrial fireplace mantle, and a show kitchen are other top-line features. As you’d expect, the home is an entertainer’s dream, and also features a commercial-grade kitchen ready to serve several hundred guests if the occasion requires.

The Oakley founder’s mansion also flaunts a state-of-the-art theatre, bar, family room, separate guest apartment, elevator, wine cellar, gym, offices, and much more. For nine figures, no detail has been overlooked.

Jannard first bought the property back in 2009 for $19.9 million (AU$29.5 million) and underwent an entire rebuild that took five years to complete with the team at iDGroup. Today, it stands as one of the most impressive homes in the already-spectacular neighbourhood. An it’s ready for the next owner.
