If Jay Gatsby were to throw an elaborate soirée in 2018, 642 Perugia Way would prove the perfect setting. Situated atop approximately one acre with majestic Bel Air Golf Course and city views, the newly constructed architectural home offers the perfect balance of sleek, contemporary style and timeless sophistication. From its spectacular 40-foot, sky-lit atrium entry with floating staircase to the incredible, 2,100-square-foot master suite, the home is a showpiece of unrivaled elegance in one of the world’s most iconic neighborhoods.
On Thursday, July 12th, The Agency’s James Harris, David Parnes and Mauricio Umansky hosted a twenties-inspired fete at the property befitting of Fitzgerald’s infamous—and elusive—protagonist. Guests enjoyed savory bites from Crateful Catering and sips by sponsors BTL SVC, Jardesca, Chalk Hill and Lucien Albrecht while they explored the stunning residence, which is offered fully furnished with Minotti, Henge, Rimadesio and Misura Emme pieces. After making their way through the home, partygoers took to the expansive grounds beyond, where flapper dancers performed on the pool terrace—and in the water!—to sounds by DJ Filthy Gorgeous, and an aerial acrobat dazzled while pouring champagne for thirsty guests.
“Mauricio, James and I have represented some incredible real estate in Los Angeles, but Perugia is truly in a class of its own,” says David. “It’s modern and stylish yet still possesses the warmth of a family home, making it the ideal property to relax and entertain.” Adds James, “We have a lot to celebrate right now with the launch of this amazing home, our recent WSJ Real Trends Ranking and the fact that our team now represents more than $1 Billion in inventory. It was a momentous event, and we are looking forward to finding a buyer who will call this magical property home.”
