YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: We have it on unimpeachable authority that Jane’s Addiction guitarist and occasional actor Dave Navarro — in the last few years he’s popped up on “Sons of Anarchy” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” — splashed out $2.9 million for a brand-spanking new contemporary in L.A.’s historic Larchmont neighborhood. The nearly 4,300-square-foot residence, built by FMB development a on street lined mostly with far less modern bungalows, is arranged around a central courtyard with built-in fire pit and offers airy, interconnected living spaces with high ceilings, swanky wide-plank French oak floors, and a high-tech home automation system. Just off the front entry there’s a floating wood-and-steel staircase opposite a formal living room with fireplace and, at the heart of the house, a sleekly outfitted kitchen has two huge work islands, a four-seat snack counter, state-of-the-art appliances, and a walk-in pantry. A free-standing, climate-controlled wine cabinet stands between the kitchen from the dining area that adjoins a television lounge. There are three en suite guest bedrooms on the second floor — one with private balcony — plus a privately situated master suite with fitted walk-in closet and roomy bathroom. Banks of glass doors open to a decidedly compact but cleverly configured backyard with a wee patch of grass, plunge-sized pool, dining terrace and built-in grilling station.
