…from a gabby gal we’ll call Nita Tellsomebody who told us openly gay glam-rock American Idol alum—and current Glee cast member—Adam Lambert is house hunting in the Sunset Strip area, more than likely with his recently licensed real estate agent mother, Leila.

According to Miss Tellsomebody Mister Lambert recently dropped by the open house for a gated residence tucked privately at the tail end of a private lane on a cul-de-sac near the top of Nichols Canyon and listed for almost $2.4 million. As of today the fully renovated post and beam-built house in question remains active on the open market and listing details show the 3,400 square foot two-story house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a full-floor master suite with separate sitting room, canyon-view private terrace, fitted walk-in closet, and private bathroom with separate soaking tub and shower. The nearly one acre hillside property offers off-street parking for almost a dozen cars and a small (but flat) backyard area with a quadrant-shaped swimming pool (above).

For a couple years Mister Lambert rented a pretty darn spectacular, Lorcan O’Herlihy-designed house in the Beachwood Canyon/Hollywood Dell area that’s just about across the street from a house once rented by once promising starlet turned tabloid train wreck turned upcoming reality t.v. denizen Lindsay Lohan. However, since at least beginning of 2013 the spiky-haired and often maquillaged Grammy nominee has leased in a high-floor two bedroom and two bathroom condo in a full-service building in the heart of West Hollywood where previous celebrity residents include Lindsay Lohan and Kelly Osbourne who, as it turns out, used to live across the hall until last summer (2013) when she rented a gated residence tucked deep into Beverly Hills Post Office that had previously been leased by—Tah-duh!—Lindsay Lohan. Anyways…

It seems Mister Lambert will have to settle on new digs—rented or purchased—quite soon since his rented West Hollywood condo appears to be back up for lease on the open market at $6,000 a month. Some of its creature comforts, according to listing details we scared up on the internets, shows there’s a “discreet” Murphy bed in the second bedroom, broad city views from open-air patios off the living room and both bedrooms, a modern kitchen, and upgraded bathrooms, at least one of which has a waterfall shower and dry sauna.
