A Hollywood Hills home from luxury developer Roman James Build has hit the market with an asking price of $29.9 million.

Completed this year, the five-bed, five-bathroom rectory has 13,578 square feet at 8365 Sunset View Drive. It listed July 15 for around $2,200 per square foot. Amenities in the three-level home include a cinema, fitness studio, and car showroom that can display up to five cars. The list is owned by H. Blair Chang of The Agency and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland.

For neighborhood comparisons, listing agent Fenton’s website lists 1029 Hanover Drive. It is another Roman James creation listed for $27.5 million. The 12,000 square foot home sells for $2,290 per square foot and was built in 2018.

Roman James, founder of his namesake company, rose to prominence when his ex-wife Nicole James appeared on “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” He is currently married to JoAnna Pallante, agent for The Altman Brothers real estate agency.

James also became well known for designing 1108 North Hillcrest Drive, a Trousdale Estates home that sold for $70 million to Minecraft video game creator Markus Peerson. The deal was one of the costliest residential home closures of 2014.

Recently, James’ business moved away from Los Angeles. In January, the Phoenix Business Journal reported that a group of investors would spend more than $200 million developing Roman James Build homes in the Phoenix area. The Wall Street Journal also reported that James was to build a $50 million home in the Hamptons. The house is expected to be completed in 2024.
