Rob Pattinson Decamps To Bev Hills Rental

It appears that cuckolded Twilight heart throb Rob Pattinson has little interest in living in the rather stunning house in L.A.’s Los Feliz area that he bought in September 2011 for $6,275,000 and shared with his former co-star and girlfriend Kristen Stewart. (Miss Stewart owns a home of her own in a star-stocked gated enclave about 1.5 miles away from RPatt’s house in Los Feliz that she snagged in August 2012 for $2.195 million.)

Recent reports by the celebrity and property gossips at E! Online suggest Mister Pattinson recently decamped to a rented macmansion in a gated community in Beverly Hills. One of Your Mama’s well-connected snitches—let’s call him Mirakle Mike—confirmed that Mister Pattinson did indeed move about a month ago to a house to a guard gated development that’s famous for its past and present celebrity residents who include Gwen Stefani, Hilary Duff, Ed McMahon, and Britney Spears.

The house that’s been identified by the folks at Zillow as Mister Pattinson’s new leased digs were, according to our own research, sold in April (2013) for $3.7 million by a mysterious entity to a non-celebrity. Although we’ve never been able to prove it 100%, a trusted and very well connected celebrity real estate birdie told us years ago that the house in question was owned by—are you sitting down?—Lisa Marie Presley who quietly leased it to a slew of celebs including Cate Blanchett, Pete Sampras, and Shaquille O’Neal.

We didn’t find any evidence of the house in question being listed for lease on the open market and we certainly have no idea how much Mister Pattinson pays for the the leased macmansion but we did find numerous listings on the internets from last June and July (2012) when the previous owner—who may or may not have been Lisa Marie Presley—had it up for lease for $15,000. One listing shows it was actually leased in July 2012 at a rate of $30,000 per month.

Listing details from mid-2012 describe the bulky, vine-draped mac-mansion as “French Mediterranean” in style, and maybe it is. We’ll let the children decide on that. The house has five bedrooms and six bathrooms in 5,292 square feet, as per property records and listing details. In addition to the impress-the-guests style double height foyer with dramatic sweeping stairway, listing details show there’s also a sunken formal living room with carved stone mantelpiece, a formal dining room, and a library plus a den fitted and kitted with an oak sports bar, a fireplace and a 70-inch flat screen t.v. The U-shaped kitchen has granite floors and counter tops as well as top grade appliances and a breakfast area that opens to the private backyard entertainment area that includes a brick ringed swimming pool and spa.

There are four guest/family bedrooms with private bathrooms on the second floor as well as a roomy master suite complete with fireplace, another 70-in flat screen t.v., and a private terrace that has a bit of city lights view through the thick ring of trees the encircle the backyard. The attached master bathroom has two sinks, a double spa tub (whatever that is), generous closet space and a steam shower with his and her shower heads.

How long Mister Pattinson intends to remain in residence is unknown and Your Mama is absolutely shocked that he would trade in his elegant and sophisticated home in Los Feliz for this run of the mill mac-mansion in an area of Beverly Hills that is so close to Studio City it might as well be Studio City. We’re not trashing Studio City—we’ll leave that to the L.A.-based zip code snobs out there—we’re just saying the house he owns is magnificent and it’s really a trade down to be shacking up in this so-called French Mediterranean macmansion.

    this house is hidjous. beyond an abomination. why would anyone pay money to live in a place like this when there are so many other rentals to be had in this price range?

    and p.s. you up there at 9:13 am: you’re just gonna have to face reality. pattinson and stewart broke up. she cheated. he couldn’t get over it. they broke up. shit happens.

    JFC Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart never broke up. They live together. If you believe in tabs, too bad for your brains.

    I think they were a real couple before her cheating. After that it was most likely PR relay to clean her image and protect box office results of their last movie. Twihards would revolt if they didn’t kiss and make up before release of the movie.

    The house is meh but the furnishings shown in pictures are atrocious.

    I’m bolting to the drugstore for an armload of glamorous magazines.

    Is there a fan club? Every second counts. These are fabulous U.S.A movie stars, no?

    I always heard Summit Ent PR put them together to sell the movies. I think, at one time early on, they ended up together but it was short lived. There are just too many instances showing it wasn’t real, such as the Rusty Tavern papp video. Meh, such is Hollyweird and many other “relationships.”

    I kind of think Jessica might have a point. I mean maybe they were together way back but her cheating scandal and surly little ‘tude seem at odds with Pattinson’s character. I’ve often wondered if this pairing is not a total Hollyweird scam.

    Either way, this house is atrocious.

    You people know nothing. Rob and K.S. were never together at all.

    My sources say he’s selling his LF pad to move to Toronto. At the request of….you guessed it, D.C. Of course, it’s also the home of the lovely S.G.

    The Summit above Beverly Hills, has good security. At times they photocopy your drivers license.

    This isn’t the type of house a 20 something year old boy should be renting. Definitely not a panty dropper.
    I know nothing about his ‘acting’ career and perhaps that is why he has been remanded to a much more cost effective residence.

    I’m guessing the appeal this location has for him involves the gated community and security, rather than the house itself.

    Whatever his reasons, my bet is that this is temporary as the rental listing from 2012 describes it as fully furnished. My guess is the wide range of rental pricing is dependent on the length of the lease. The shorter the term the larger the monthly rent. Perhaps he’ll be there only 2-5 months. Maybe there is some remodeling at the LF house necessitating a short term move and there weren’t any suitable openings at Oakwood.

    Maybe he can’t face living in LF1 anymore after what K did. It must hold a lot of memories some of which he possibly could want to forget.Also it doesn’t hold much privacy from fangirls who think it’s okay to stalk him there whenever they feel like it. I think it’s a good move on his part.

    No fan girls in The Summit maybe?
