YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Sometimes good things just fall from the sky at unexpected moments and that’s what happened on Friday afternoon when Your Mama received a thoughtful missive from Big Dave at Celebrity Address Aerial who whispered in our big ear that in demand young actor and somewhat reluctant celebrity Shia LaBeouf bought himself new digs in Sherman Oaks, CA. A peep into property records reveals that back in January of 2009 young Mister LaBeouf forked over $1,810,000 (or $1,825,000 depending on where one snoops) for a 2,463 square foot mid-century modern number on Deervale Drive that includes 3 bedrooms and 4 poopers.

The twenty-two year old, 5’9″ native Angeleno–who wears an impressive size 11 shoe–won a Daytime Emmy award in 2003 for his boob-toob role on Disney’s Even Steven, a program that Your Mama is far to old and cynical to know a damn thing about. More recently Mister LaBeouf has strutted his unlikely sex-symbol stuff on the big screen in flicks like Disturbia, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and the money minting Transformers franchise with the impossibly attractive, wildly opinionated and grossly over-exposed Angelina Jolie look-alike ack-tress Megan Fox. Our research on the internets shows that Mister LaBeouf will be expanding his movie making horizons in the near future with soon to be released New York, I Love You and he is scheduled to appear opposite Frank Langella and Michael Douglas who will reprise his role as the money grubbing Gordon Gekko in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.

According to listing information Your Mama was able to dig up out of thin air, Mister LaBeouf’s new crib occupies a private 1/2 acre flat lot in the hills and includes a small motor court laid with pavers and a two car carport where he will park the automobiles he can not currently drive because in January (2009) he had his driver’s license suspended for a year due to his refusal to take a blood-alcohol test in the aftermath of an car accident in which he was involved in July of 2008.

The glass wrapped, sunken living room has a fireplace and, rather bizarrely, saltillo tiled floors that unfortunately stretch into the glass wrapped dining room as well. Since the furniture in the photos is not that of Mister LaBeouf we’re not going to touch on the tragedy that are those two greyish blue leather sofas. The kitchen has been completely over-hauled with contemporary, flat paneled wooden cabinets, some sort of cliche black counter top that may or may not be granite but might be acceptable if it were soapstone, and all the stainless steel appliances a person could ever want.

A series of sliding glass doors hide a built-in office that’s been tucked into what appears to Your Mama to have been a wide hallway or some kind of small family room. The modestly but adequately sized master bedroom has a second fireplace for romantic interludes with starlets (he did, after all go on a date with Rihanna once) and Mister LaBeouf will have the choice to use either of two private poopers in the master bedroom.

The back yard has some nice mature trees that, hopefully, block the western sun that scorches the San Fernando Valley every afternoon, a small bit of grass that we’d rip out and replace with something more drought tolerant and a simple “L” shaped swimming pool. The property drops off at the end of the swimming pool deck giving unobstructed views towards Encino, Tarzana and in the far off distance, Calabasas. Not exactly the view Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter would dial up iffin we had a say in such things, but it is none the less a view that does not include looking into the kitchen window of the neighbor.

Previous to purchasing this property Mister LaBeouf reportedly lived with his parents in La Canada Flintridge and for what it’s worth, it’s gratifying to Your Mama to see a young star like Mister LaBeouf purchase a modest (if not inexpensive) first home rather than some glitzy, over-blown behemoth like so many young guns swimming in new money do. We also hope that Mister LaBeouf gets a nice gay decorator in there toot-suite to do something about a few of the less savory aspects of the interior spaces such as those horrific saltillo tile floors. We got nothing against saltillo tile floors, we just think they’re an abomination in this house.
