Married Skincare Entrepreneurs Drop $25 Million on a Lavish L.A. Spec Mansion

An extravagant Tobe Morrow-designed spec mansion recently traded hands in the ultra-posh Brentwood Park enclave of Los Angeles. The seller was local developer Gil Charash of AMG Capital, who paid $8 million for the existing property on the site in summer 2022, then didn’t even get a chance to officially list the newly built place in its stead before it was snapped up in an off-market deal that reportedly set a price-per-square-foot sales record for the area.

Property deeds show the eager buyers are Dr. Katie Rodan and her husband Amnon Rodan—she a dermatologist who co-founded the anti-aging skincare powerhouse Rodan + Fields, makers of the acne-management brand Proactiv, and he the former chairman of the company—who doled out a dab over $25 million for the six-bedroom, nine-bath home in early February.

Completed this year, the Rodans’ new contemporary estate rests on an a little over a half-acre of land secured by gates and enhanced by an attached three-car garage. Roughly 8,000 square feet of two-level living space is adorned throughout with hardwood floors, high ceilings, designer light fixtures and large expanses of glass offering seamless indoor/outdoor environs.

A lofty wood-beam ceiling tops the living area, which leads out to a covered terrace overlooking the grassy backyard.

Glassy arched double doors open into an attractive wood-paneled foyer, which flows to a fireside living room spilling out to a covered terrace. There’s also a formal dining room equipped with wine storage, as well as a sleekly designed gourmet kitchen that comes complete with an oversized eat-in island, top-tier appliances and an accompanying breakfast room.

Elsewhere is a sumptuous master retreat featuring a fireside sitting area, private balcony, walk-in closet, and marble-clad bath spotlighted by an enclosed wet room sporting a soaking tub and shower; and topping it all off are the lushly landscaped grounds, which host a Pickleball court, swimming pool and spa, and numerous spots ideal for al fresco lounging and entertaining. There’s also a detached guesthouse on the premises.

In addition to their new Brentwood Park home, the couple—who launched the Rodan Family Foundation in 2018—own at least two properties in L.A.’s Pacific Palisades area, including one that’s been razed and is now up for sale at $8.5 million with plans for a new Marmol Radziner-designed structure, as well as houses in Aspen and San Francisco. A year ago, they sold a 6,750-square-foot residence in the California town of Piedmont for $7.2 million, and they also are rumored to have recently paid actor Ben Affleck $28.5 million for another Pacific Palisades mansion that’s currently undergoing an extensive renovation.

The listing was held by Maxwell Hutchison of Official and Conrad Adamczak of The Beverly Hills Estates; Lisa Kirshner and Dylan Elkin of Guide Real Estate repped the buyers.
