Robin Thicke and Estranged Wife Paula Patton List Home Above L.A.’s Sunset Strip (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLER: Robin Thicke
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $2,985,000
SIZE: 3,158 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Our Fairy Godmother in the Bel Air came tap-tap-tappin’ on Your Mama’s digital window last night to let us know that singer/songwriter Robin Thicke and his estranged wife Paula Patton have hoisted their home above L.A.’s Sunset Strip on the market with an asking price of $2,985,000,

This isn’t such an unexpected development to seasoned celebrity real estate watchers like Your Mama. The actress (Déja Vu, 2 Guns) and the “Blurred Lines” singing showbiz scion — he’s the son of sitcom actor Alan Thicke and soap-story superstar Gloring Loring — the former teenage sweethearts have officially split up after 20+ years of coupledom and nearly a decade of marriage.

Property records and other online resources show the Bird Streets residence was originally purchased by the Alan Thicke in early 1990 for $910,000 and deeded over to the younger Mister Thicke in early 2005, right about the time he and Miz Patton made their way down the aisle.

Listing information shows the two-story house was originally built in 1965 on a .29-acre ridgeline parcel with broad canyon and city views and is currently configured with three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 3,158 square feet. Honestly, Your Mama imagined a undeniably sexy actress and a good-looking man who can fearlessly don a black and white striped suit and bang up on the backside of a naughtily twerking and tongue-wagging Miley Cyrus on national television might live in a house with more decorative panache and pizzazz but, well, alas, puppies, alas…

Topiary flanked double front doors surmounted by a single-pane semi-circular window open directly into a loft-like, multilevel and multi-purpose living space with Mexican paver tiles under foot, a wood-paneled ceiling overhead and, on the back wall, a monolithic (and monumentally unfortunate) used brick fireplace. The main living space is ringed by a series of alcoves: a dining area with three single-pane semi-circular clerestory windows; a crimson-walled boob-toob watching lounge area with button tufted tan leather sectional sofa; and a good-sized if idiosyncratically shaped, sky-lit kitchen with humble bare pine raised panel cabinetry, white counter tops of unknown material, and middle-grade appliances, some of them stainless steel and some of them not. Over in the corner of the kitchen, uncomfortably set at a cattywompus angle, is a used brick fireplace or pizza oven or something that inexplicably stuffed with what appears to be a large lamp.

Listing details go on to reveal that one of the three secondary bedrooms on the upper level is set up as a music studio and that the master suite — with vexatious turquoise walls and stupefying make-up lighting situation over the dresser — occupies the entire lower level and has a second, albeit less brogdingnagian used brick fireplace.

Glass sliders in the t.v. lounge and at least one of the upper level bedrooms open to a deep, wrought-iron railed and fairy light lit terrace that runs along the back of the house and provides impressive views over the canyons towards the compact knot of low-rise skyscrapers that comprise downtown L.A. The sliders in the living area, which are topped by another trio of single-pane semi-circular windows open to a petite, red brick courtyard with stone balustrade and plunge-sized swimming pool and separate spa.

Other homes in the immediate vicinity are owned (but not in all cases occupied) by Harry Morton, Jr., Michael Buble, RuPaul Charles, and Jennifer Aniston.
