Photog Richard Franklin shot celebs and 600 models there

A Hollywood Hills home designed with a playboy bachelor’s dreams in mind hit the market this week for $8.5 million.
Nicknamed the “House of Sin,” the eight-story home on Sunset Plaza Drive, near the Bird Streets, is known for its eclectic and alluring decor.

The owner, photographer Richard Franklin, frequently worked on photoshoots at the home with celebrity clientele, such as Kim Kardashian, and more than 600 models, according to a spokesperson for Franklin.

Designed to accommodate an over-the-top party lifestyle, it features a rooftop pool and hot tub, an indoor spa, a dancing studio, a casino, and a black-light disco nightclub. The 5,332 square-foot house has five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

The home was built in 1990. Franklin purchased it five years later for $900,000.
