YouTube Star Jordan Maron Nabs Sunset Plaza Pad

According to indefatigable real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak, it was 23-year-old YouTube megastar Jordan Maron who, via trust, plunked down more than $4.5 million for a sexed-up contemporary perched on a steep, city-view hillside high above L.A.’s Sunset Strip. Maron, known online as CaptainSparklez, may not be a household name, but his insanely popular videos, which consist primarily of him playing the video game “Minecraft,” have garnered more than 1.7 billion views, and earned the Internet whippersnapper enough money to buy a multimillion-dollar house when many young men his age are still looking for change in the sofa cushions in order to buy beer.

The residence, with three bedrooms and five bathrooms in a bit more than 4,100 square feet, according to online marketing materials, maintains a low, single-story profile at the front, and drops dramatically at the back to three stories, with glass-railed terraces and sky-high views that on a clear day extend all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Living and dining rooms on the uppermost floor open via floor-to-ceiling glass sliders to a terrace with outdoor fireplace, as does the master suite that also includes a fitted walk-in closet and see-through fireplace.

A family room on the lowest level has a sunken wet bar, and opens to a terrace with a stainless steel barbecue, party-sized spa and infinity swimming pool.

The listing was handled by Dustin Nicholas of Nicholas Property Group and the buyer was represented by Joe Babajian at Rodeo Realty.

Coincidentally, last year, billionaire “Minecraft” creator Markus “Notch” Persson shelled out $70 million for a 23,000-square-foot mansion a few thousand feet away from CaptainSparklez’s pad in nearby Trousdale Estates.

    I don’t get it, why was he SO DUMB?!?!? If he hadn’t posted all that dumb stuff in the first place then none of this would’ve happened. “Yassss, got my new Bently! So bae!”… Like really? What did he think was going to happen with him showing off like that (and yes I don’t care what you think that is completely showing off). That being said this post is still disgusting and needs to be removed. Plus it literally took me two minutes to find his house via Google Maps. Only imagine if a crazed fan found out his address and drove up to his house to and broke into his house or something.

    Take this down bc it shouldn’t even exist! Jordan is a person who deserves privacy just like the rest of the world-wife population. Everyone would feel the same way if their house was leaked to the public. Honestly,WHO CARES HOW MUCH HE SPENT ON A HOUSE! WE SPEND MORE MONEY ON TOILET PAPER!!!! Just leave the poor guy alone! It’s his first house let him live his life! omg these attention grabbing websites infuriate me so much because they just ruin people’s lives.

      Also,I can English very good,yes? I meant “World-wide” SEE this crap even makes me misspell easy words omg grow up America

      • CaptainAdvocate says:

        Alright, lets see what I can drum up on your address and then I’ll post it all over internet. No, I’ll give it to Jordan so that HE can spread it. Then you move, people will DDOS you, and you will feel insecure just being in your own home. How dare you interfere with someone’s privacy for a publication like Variety.

    Where are the pinball machines?

  4. I love all the people mad in the comments because he has a nice house. But seriously, this should have never been written. He deserves privacy. Also nice job using a 5 year old picture of him.

  5. Anon says:

    You can’t leave people alone… and you used a picture from when he was in collage. Why?.

  6. Nobody says:

    I’m really upset that this was even written about. He deserves his privacy like everyone else.

  7. This aint right says:
