Meanwhile, The Esquire House 360º is the ultimate bachelor pad, a 17,000 square-foot Italian villa in Beverly Hills located on three acres of land with sprawling lawns and 360-degree views.
The House defines modern luxury and sustains Esquire’s “Signature Space” concept - the transformation of a remarkable physical space into the epitome of 21st Century living. The Esquire House 360º will host a series of exclusive celebrity/charity events through December.
