Robert Pattinson Buys House in Hollywood Hills (EXCLUSIVE)

BUYER: Robert Pattinson
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $2,176,500
SIZE: 1,940 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: While Robert Pattinson skulked around The Big Apple over the weekend with his arty-farty and — ahem — exotically named singer-songwriter gal pal FKA twigs — yes, that’s her chosen name, children — Your Mama heard from both celebrity real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak and the inestimable Lucy Spillerguts that the “Twilight” franchise superstar turned up-and-coming leading man is the secret buyer behind the $2,176,500 blind trust purchase of a humble if well-appointed and hardly inexpensive home in a celebrity-filled pocket of the Hollywood Hills.

Set privately behind another house down a long, gated red brick driveway, the single-story hacienda-style casa has just two bedrooms and two bathrooms and comes in at 1,940-square feet, as per listing details we scared up out of the internets.

Rustic and satisfyingly well-patinated terra cotta tile floors run throughout the interconnected main living spaces — the flooring switches to wood in the bedrooms — that include a reasonably roomy living room with multiple French doors that open to the yard. Twin arches flank a minimalist, double-sided fireplace and lead into a sky-lit, combination kitchen and dining area with vaulted, open beam ceiling and a full-complement of high-end stainless steel appliances, including a $14,000 U.K.-manufactured cast iron range. Both bedrooms have custom built-in wardrobes and direct access to outdoor living and lounging areas and both bathrooms have arched and tiled combination shower/tubs, the hall bath in cobalt blue and the master bath in celery green.

A brick veranda runs along the inside façade of the angled residence and gives way to a somewhat compact but remarkably private and tree-shaded yard with good-sized flat lawn, wee kidney-shaped swimming pool and rugged canyon views. Courtyard areas around the side and rear of the residence include variety of terraces and a secluded spa set into a brick terrace tightly girdled by a thick wall of privacy ensuring shrubbery.

The property in question is remarkably more modest in scale and significantly less pricy than the celeb-pedigreed spread in L.A.’s Los Feliz ‘hood Mister Pattinson picked up in September 2011 for $6.275 million and sold in January 2014 for $6,375,000 to Emmy-hoovering sitcom supernova Jim Parsons. (The Los Feliz property was previously owned by Tinseltown notables Tim Curry, Noah Wylie, Robert Richardson, and Robert Luketic.)
