Contemporary Hollywood Hills Mansion Seen In HBO’s ‘Ballers’ Lists For $20 Million

The Hollywood Hills showplace at 1 Bode Drive was used as a filming location in the HBO series "Ballers" starring The Rock (Dwayne Johnson).

If your weekend streaming list includes the HBO MAX drama Ballers, chances are this 10,000-square-foot trophy home in the Hollywood Hills may look familiar.

Designed by Los Angeles-based developer Michael Mueller, the $19.99-million tour de force was used as a setting in final season of the sports drama series, with its decadent appearance embodying the extravagant lifestyles of the show’s wealthy characters.

“This property had to be all about glass, all about floating,” Mueller shared in a recent sit-down with Forbes. “The big key design is that the inside becomes the outside, especially in California where you can leave the doors open.”

Mueller, whose famous clients have included Nicole Kidman, Sharon Stone and Nicolas Cage, finished work on the property in 2019. Before the new construction, the one-acre hillside property was previously owned for more than 50 years by Leslie Nielsen of The Naked Gun and Airplane! fame.

Contemporary in design and execution, the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom dwelling implements staples of modern, innovative architecture, with free-form shapes, an asymmetrical layout and landscape-integrated structures.

The interior suits modern tastes with an open floor plan, expansive walls of disappearing glass and natural material accents. Decorative touches like golden fixtures, bold wall patterns and high gloss surfaces add an air of Hollywood Regency glamour.

“It’s a very cutting-edge design,” shares listing agent Jonathan Nash of Beverly Hills-based Hilton & Hyland. Nash believes the property is tailored for the quintessential Hollywood lifestyle that draws many to Los Angeles. “It might be an international buyer, or someone in entertainment. I believe [the property] lends itself well to a musician or someone involved in crypto or tech because it’s completely automated.”

A spacious kitchen fits two stone islands, one topped with Caesarstone and another composed of slabs of mica-accented granite.

Other marbled stone statement pieces are found throughout, seen in the double-sided fireplace, Italian-granite backsplash and black, rhombic wet bar.

Rivaling the most luxurious five-star resorts, the sumptuous primary suite includes a dramatic two-story dressing room and decadent bath with soaking tub, dual showers, and makeup vanity. (HILTON & HYLAND)

An impressive two-story dressing room resides in the home’s primary suite, which also features a fireplace, seamless outdoor-transitional glass wall and a deluxe bathroom with a soaking tub, dual showers and a makeup vanity.

Other amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness studio, media room and three-car showcase garage.

A work of art in a world-class locale, this gorgeous Hollywood oasis is secluded, yet just moments to the iconic Sunset Strip and prestigious Beverly Hills. (HILTON & HYLAND)

Outdoor spaces include a rooftop lounge, a dramatic, arched infinity pool and an array of balconies with views that stretch from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean.

“I would say that living in this house is like living in the sky in a modern world where you are surrounded by all the beauty that Los Angeles has to offer,” Mueller said.
