Nick Jonas Nabs Sunset Strip Spanish

BUYER: Nick Jonas
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $3,200,000
SIZE: 2,305 square feet, 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms (total)

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: When (American) boy-men turn 21 they all too often gather a merry band of bros and hos and drink downright ludicrous and dangerous amounts of liquor. But—as per several reliable informants including Benny N. Duhjets and Yolanda Yakketyyak—if you’re an international pop music superstar and budding actor like Nick Jonas you go out, instead, and drop $3.2 million on a gated micro-compound just above L.A.’s perennially chic Sunset Strip.

Digital marketing materials show the property, a minuscule but mostly flat .16 acres on a city-view promontory that is well-oriented for celebrity-style privacy, includes an updated and upgraded 1930s Spanish-style main house with three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms plus a wee but self-contained studio-style guest house with bathroom.

The recently renovated residence mixes original—or at least vintage-inspired—architectural details such as period tile and leaded glass windows with a bevy of new-fangled features such as an integrated whole-house sound system and cutting edge security that Your Mama imagines will likely be beefed up by the increasingly—uhm—body-fied tween and teen sensation with a burly and armed guard who would rather lay a beotch out on the street than let him or/her stand around and gawp like a fanbot moe-ron. Anyways…

Chestnut-toned wood floors run throughout much (if not all) of the living spaces on the main floor that include a roomy formal dining room and a party-sized formal living room with a wood-beamed ceiling, wood-burning fireplace, and a curved wall of windows with verdant, garden view.

The well-equipped kitchen kitchen looks large enough to host a free-standing center work island if such a thing is desired by Mister Jonas and is currently finished with olive green cabinetry, some sort of eggshelly-colored solid-surface counter top, and a full suite of high-grade stainless steel appliances. An adjoining den opens through wood and glass doors to a tree- and shrub-enshrouded courtyard area with a lagoon-style plunge pool.

One of the two guest/family bedrooms on the second floor has a vaulted exposed wood beam ceiling and over-sized arched windows while the other, smaller bedroom, also with a vaulted and exposed wood beam ceiling, has an angled wall and a a full wall of built-in bookcases. The upper level, city-view master suite is complete with fireplace, walk-in closet, and a large private facility with two-sink vanity, jetted tub, and separate steam shower.

The detached guest house offers occupants a compact but well-outfitted and private hideaway with high-quality kitchenette, vaulted ceiling, glossy paver tile floors, and a private bathroom. The house and guest house sit tightly on the small and unusually shaped lot but none-the-less manages to accommodate several interconnected patios, courtyards and terraces. One hosts the afore-mentioned plunge pool, another has an outdoor fireplace for nippy morning and chilly evenings, and a third offers a head-on view of the cluster of high-rises that comprise Century City.

We don’t know where he officially lives, Mister Jonas—who recently broke up with his brothers/bandmates and currently dates (former) Miss Universe Olivia Culpo—lived in New York City for at least part of 2012 while he briefly starred on the short-lived Broadway reprise of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. We, and just about everybody else, learned from the kids at Curbed, that young Mister Jonas reportedly shelled out about $20,000 per month to lease a three bedroom penthouse apartment in the same star-studded New York City building where Lance Bass owns a condo (that’s currently under contract to be sold) and Katie Holmes has holed up in a rental since she dumped ex-husband Tom Cruise in the summer of 2012. The penthouse is owned, as it turns out by professional puck pusher Scott Gomez who previously leased leased it to film and television producer Steven Levinson (Boardwalk Empire, Entourage, In Treatment) and much-tatted fashion designer Marc Jacobs.
