As for décor, Simon opted for a monochrome theme throughout, with white walls and black accents seen in window and door frames and furniture. Even the building, constructed over a five-year period during which time Simon A OK'd every detail, is white with black pipes and balconies on each terrace.

Outside, the patio is white with black steps, and furniture includes white sun loungers and black umbrellas.

According to reports, Simon hopes to move to a quieter area away from Hollywood, in order to keep his family life out of the spotlight.

In the meantime, he also owns properties in Malibu, Wimbledon and Holland Park, where the family will have the choice of staying until they find somewhere else they would like to buy.
