In case y’all haven’t heard, DJs are the new rock stars, with the incomes and property portfolios to prove it. Internationally in-demand Scotsman Calvin Harris — nee Adam Wiles — pulled in a combined $110 million in 2013 and 2014. That’s a good thing, since in early spring 2012, the 30-year-old Grammy winner paid $5,527,500 for a 7,100-square-foot mock-Med mini-mansion on a celeb-lined street in L.A.’s swank if sleepy Brentwood area that he sold at a loss in late spring the following year for $4.9 million. He quickly laid out $7 million for a sexed-up, Zen-inspired mini-compound above the western end of the Sunset Strip but, as per ever-in-the-know real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak, the DJ caught a severe second case of the Real Estate Fickle, and has quietly forked over $15 million on a considerably more significant compound off a celeb-lined street in the Beverly Hills post office area.
The 2.66-acre property encompasses 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms in 18,000 square feet of interior space that includes a newly constructed main house with four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. A single-story guesthouse near the gated entrance has a private pool and spa, while a second and also newly-constructed two-story guesthouse perched on the hillside above the main house has sweeping canyon views. Multi-level staff quarters are equipped with commercial grade elevator and three-car garage and, carved into the hillside behind the house, a series of decks and terraces surround the compound’s second swimming pool and spa.
