UPDATE: Although this property gossip saw a live digital listing for the property, a spokesperson of the real estate agent who represented the Hoppus house got in touch and says the property is not actually for sale either on or off the market. And, indeed, the digital listing has been removed from the listing agent’s website.
Diane d’Snitch sent word via covert digital communiqué that Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus has his sleek mid-century modern on a quiet cul-de-sac in the ultra trendy and spectacularly spendy Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills available outside the Multiple Listing Service, with a rockstar-sized asking price of $10 million. Hoppus purchased the pristinely maintained and stylishly appointed Hal Levitt-designed residence in 2004 for $3.65 million, and several years ago, while he and his wife, Skye, were living in London, offered the swanky spread as a fully furnished luxury lease with an asking price of $15,000 per month.
Digital marketing materials show the low-slung house, completely obscured from the street behind a dense wall of tropical foliage and outfitted with a camera- equipped security system, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms in not quite 3,400 square feet. Hardwoods run throughout the single-level residence, which features a living room with a fireplace and a dramatic curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s also a formal dining room, den, and an essentially circular, almost all-white kitchen with stainless-steel appliances. The curvaceous rear of the residence is lined with glass sliders that lead out to a keyhole-shaped swimming pool surrounded by extensive terraces for lounging and entertaining.
Hoppus, fresh off the release of “California,” his band’s seventh studio album and second No. 1 album on The Billboard 200, additionally owns an unassuming tract home that backs up to a San Diego golf course bought in 1998 for $315,000.
