Rockstar’s Russ Weiner Flipping Out in Hermosa Beach

SELLER: Russ Weiner
LOCATION: Hermosa Beach, CA
PRICE: $13,900,000
SIZE: 6,200 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: In July (2013), luxe-living (and unfortunately named) RockStar energy drink mogul Russ Goldencloud Weiner—yeppers, puppies, that’s really his middle name—shelled out exactly $10 million for a modern, beach front residence in Hermosa Beach, CA. Just a month later, we first learned from the ever-vigilant real estate yenta Yolanda Yakkeyyak, the 30-something year old orange-haired entrepreneur flipped the property back on the market with a substantially higher $13.9 million price tag.

Listing details show Mister Weiner’s four-floor beach house sits cheek to jowl with the neighboring houses and was built brand new about six years ago with has a total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in about 6,200 square feet of interior space.

A bi-level, marble-floored entry with sinuous stainless steel stair railings and a huge circular skylight that floods the space with natural light leads to the also marble-floored main floor living spaces that includes a formal dining room and a compact den with stainless-steel fireplace surround. The main living space is a spacious, open-plan space with more marble floors, a fireplace, and a clean-lined kitchen outfitted with walnut cabinetry, four-stool breakfast bar, and sleek stainless steel Euro-style appliances that include a built-in coffee maker. A wide, curved wall of glass doors fold open to a slender (and marble-floored) patio with panoramic beach and ocean views.

Three of the six bedrooms are located in the basement along with a kitchenette-equipped family room and a home theater with newly installed 3-D projection equipment. There are two more bedrooms on the second floor, including a spacious master suite with walk-in closet, ocean-side terrace, and a fireplace surmounted by a grotesquely-sized 90-in flat screen television. The attached master bathroom, slathered in marble, has twin sinks, a glass-enclosed steam shower, a separate sauna, and a jetted tub set in front of some sort of mural of jellyfish. A sixth bedroom—currently set up as a work-out room, according to marketing materials, perches up on the uppermost third level where there’s a crowded-looking roof terrace with outdoor fireplace and free-standing spa.

Other amenities and luxuries, as per listing details, include a state-of-the-art home automation system with integrated tough panel controls, three-car garage plus additional guest parking, and a five-stop elevator.

Mister Weiner, the Las Vegas-based politically active son of vitriolic right wing radio host Michael Savage, has a long history of purchasing high-priced properties and quickly putting them back on the market with with large mark-ups.

In early 2010 Mister Weiner paid $6.75 million for a 19,000 square water front monster mansion on Palm Island in Miami Beach (FL). The property was formerly owned by high-flying hip-hop music producer turned bankrupt cocaine addict Scott Storch who, like Icarus, flew to close to the sun lost the mansion to foreclosure. Mister Weiner quickly turned around and listed the property in late 2010 for an incredulously optimistic $20,000,000 but didn’t manage to unload it until September 2012 when rapper and Cash Money Records founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams came along and shelled out $14.5 million dollars for the super-sized spread.

Your Mama’s research shows Mister Weiner continues to own an almost 10,000 square foot mansion in the Beverly Park enclave that he scooped up for $15 million in 2007 and had on and off the market between March 2009 and February 2011 at a variety of rose-tinted prices that went as high as $28,000,000. Property records also show that in March 2009 the real estate mad Mister Weiner dropped $11,600,000 for a gated, 1.48 acre ocean front spread in Delray Beach, FL with a 14-ish thousand square foot mansion with, according to listing details from the time of the purchase, seven bedrooms, seven full and three half bathrooms, an 8-car air-conditioned garage, a separate guest house, swimming pool, and tennis court. In typical fashion, Mister Weiner flipped the property back on the market just a month later for $17,500,000 but failed to sell it and took it off the market in March 2010.
