When You Own Pinkberry, You Can Live Like This

Young Lee and Shelly Hwang, the co-founders of Pinkberry, have listed their sleek modern abode for $3.495 million. The couple bought the spread from architect Steven Kent back in 2008, only three years after their first store opened in Los Angeles. By that time, it was obvious the "crackberry" craze was here to stay, which likely promoted the Korean American couple to purchase such a swanky estate. View the listing.

The sleek modern spread is perched on a cliff in Malibu. The home was built in 2008 by architect Steve Kent, and the Pinkberry founders were reportedly so enamored with the house that they offered $3.525 million to the architect, an offer that he clearly couldn't refuse.

The 4,800-square-foot home features stunning walls of glass that frame the spectacular ocean views. In fact, because of the home's perched location almost every room in the home boasts jaw-dropping views of the Pacific.

The home is totally decked out with modern furniture to complement the modern design aesthetic. If you like what you see, the Pinkberry founders are offering all of the furnishings separately.

Hwang and Lee clearly have a penchant for minimalist design as all of the Pinkberry storefronts are outfitted with Philippe Stark furniture and lighting.

Architect Steve Kent decked out the house with some swanky high-end appliances such as a Boffi kitchen cabinetry, Miele, furnishings by Guy Cnop of Linea Inc. and Toto toilets. The only thing you won't find in this kitchen is a Pinkberry yogurt dispenser.

Despite making a fortune with their chain of satisfyingly tart desserts, the couple stand to take a loss on the sale of the home--at least $40,000 to be exact.
9/9
The Pinkberry founders may want to thank the city of Los Angeles for steering them to the yogurt path. The city originally rejected the couple's application to open a teahouse so instead Lee and Hwang decided to take the yogurt route and they never looked back.
