YouTube Star Jordan Maron Nabs Sunset Plaza Pad

According to indefatigable real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak, it was 23-year-old YouTube megastar Jordan Maron who, via trust, plunked down more than $4.5 million for a sexed-up contemporary perched on a steep, city-view hillside high above L.A.’s Sunset Strip. Maron, known online as CaptainSparklez, may not be a household name, but his insanely popular videos, which consist primarily of him playing the video game “Minecraft,” have garnered more than 1.7 billion views, and earned the Internet whippersnapper enough money to buy a multimillion-dollar house when many young men his age are still looking for change in the sofa cushions in order to buy beer.

The residence, with three bedrooms and five bathrooms in a bit more than 4,100 square feet, according to online marketing materials, maintains a low, single-story profile at the front, and drops dramatically at the back to three stories, with glass-railed terraces and sky-high views that on a clear day extend all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Living and dining rooms on the uppermost floor open via floor-to-ceiling glass sliders to a terrace with outdoor fireplace, as does the master suite that also includes a fitted walk-in closet and see-through fireplace.

A family room on the lowest level has a sunken wet bar, and opens to a terrace with a stainless steel barbecue, party-sized spa and infinity swimming pool.

The listing was handled by Dustin Nicholas of Nicholas Property Group and the buyer was represented by Joe Babajian at Rodeo Realty.

Coincidentally, last year, billionaire “Minecraft” creator Markus “Notch” Persson shelled out $70 million for a 23,000-square-foot mansion a few thousand feet away from CaptainSparklez’s pad in nearby Trousdale Estates.
