Enduring Tinseltown icon and soap opera queen dame Joan Collins has listed her spacious luxury condo for sale—and it’s truly a thing to behold …
The place is like an over-the-top work of art that blurs the line between divine inspiration and raging overindulgence, but there’s no denying the style to it all … she clearly decorates a room just as well as she commands one.
Located at the Sierra Towers luxury condos—former home to such celebs as Cher, Lindsey Lohan, even Matthew Perry—this two bedroom, two-and-a-half bath condo is going for just a shade under $5 Million. At 2,117 square feet, that’s $2,359 per square foot … an impressive but not overwhelming price for the area.
For the money, you get impressive sweeping views, beautiful dark marble floors, and gilded bathroom décor. Note the split-level bedroom with impressive wood floors. Somehow it’s both out of date and well ahead of its time all at once. There’s also a massive, wide-open kitchen perfect for entertaining or just indulging your inner gourmet.
It seems adorable that the kitchen is so perfect, yet the ovens look so outdated … perhaps a testament to how often the lady cooks (or doesn’t cook). There’s also the second bedroom—converted into a lounge/study, since the lady presumably wouldn’t deign to have company spending the night.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and an open, flowing floorplan create a more modern-feeling flow that contrasts with some of the aging décor choices. So if a new buyer were inclined to renovate and do away with the unit’s distinct “Grandma chic” appeal, it wouldn’t necessarily be too expensive or time-consuming to do so.
It could be worthwhile considering Collins’ unit is the only one currently available in the building, and at the end of the day the unit’s greatest asset—its breathtaking views—will remain intact.

Sierra Towers was originally constructed back in 1965, and it has since become one of Los Angeles’ premiere luxury towers—a chase residence for celebrities and wealthy businessmen alike …
This is largely thanks to the building’s height; soaring an impressive 31 stories—higher than any other building in a two-mile radius. Higher floors offer totally unobstructed views of the Los Angeles skyline all the way out to the Pacific and the rolling Hollywood Hills beyond.
Collins’ residence, a corner unit, really captures that view and gives you something to savor every day.
Located just off the Sunset Strip and a short drive away from Beverly Hills, Sierra Towers offers extremely convenient access along with world-class amenities to boot. 24-hour Concierge and Security, outdoor swimming pool and sundeck … it’s all there.
So do we think the unit will sell? Almost certainly. Given the desirability of the location, the intensity of demand for LA condos … it’s really only a matter of time. $5 Million might seem a tad aggressive (especially considering the fact that she purchased the place back in 2007 for about half that), but she has zero competition.
