Recently named as one of the interior design world’s most prolific talents by the Pacific Design Center, Ryan Saghian is expanding his business in a new direction: residential redevelopment.Saghian, principal at his Los Angeles-based eponymous firm, was recognized as one of the Top 25 Designers 2022 in the Los Angeles Times inaugural design issue.With a following of over 376,000 and growing on Instagram (@ryansaghian), he’s become a social media sensation, admired for his relentless work ethic, expressive and hilarious design commentary, and an unequivocal love of his roots.
His first foray into home rehabbing involved gutting and re-envisioning a 1920’s residence in Beverly Grove. Once on the market, that home received multiple offers and sold within a week. With his latest real estate investment, 8671 Clifton, Saghian has a bold new concept: His goal is to sell the Beverly Hills home, then stay on as the interior designer, working every step of the way with the new owners to create a truly customized dream home.
The project involves a historic, one-story craftsman, first built in 1941 by trailblazing female architect Edith Northman. Saghian is keeping the original dwelling intact, while incorporating a new, second-floor addition set respectfully back. In total, 8671 Clifton will have 3,386 square feet, four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and a pool. The private, hedged corner lot totals 5,412 square feet and is currently on the market for $4,600,000.
“The home has some architectural significance,” says Saghian, who this year took top honors with the prestigious Stars on the Rise Award from the Pacific Design Center. “As an architecture lover, I focus on good design and details, and enhance them with my signature high-contrast style. With this home, I’ve preserved Northman’s original New England style aesthetic, such as bat and board siding, chiseled brick, and craftsman windows and doors, and blended that with the effortless California style and modern amenities, like a performance kitchen, that appeal to today’s discerning homeowners.”
This unusual opportunity is perfect for a buyer who wants to create a lifestyle “that has everything you need but not too much of it,” says Saghian. “People focus on the size of a home and forget to think about what they really need, like a kitchen island that seats enough people for casual family dinners, or a mud room for children. I’ll work with them to create not only a beautiful home, but also a beautiful lifestyle.”
