SELLER: Joe Jonas
LOCATION: West Hollywood, CA
SIZE: 2,888 square feet, 3-4 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: While former Disney darling and boy bander Joe Jonas gallivants around Paris during Fashion Week with his cat walker girlfriend Gigi Hadid, his representatives hoisted his freshly refreshed home on a heavily trafficked West Hollywood street up for sale at $2.895 million. The gated and we can all be assured heavily secured 1930s traditional, purchased by the musician and occasional actor in an off-market deal only a bit more than a year ago for $2.595 million, measures in at a modest by celebrity standards 2,888-square-feet, according to online marketing materials, and is configured with three bedrooms and three full and two half bathrooms.
Original architectural details in the formal living room include a barrel-vaulted ceiling and a carved stone fireplace while a small adjacent room, furnished by Mister Jonas as a media lounge, sports a built-in window seat and, per listing details, could be as a fourth bedroom. The dining room has coffered ceiling treatment, overlooks the walled front garden, and connects through to a sunny, center island kitchen casually but expensively fitted with marble counter tops, gleaming white subway tile back splashes, two-tone Shaker-style cabinetry, and the expected retinue of high-quality stainless steel appliances. Like the living room, an adjoining lounge/breakfast area opens through French doors to a shaded terrace that overlooks the petite backyard. Two spacious guest/family bedrooms on the second floor — one of done up as an office — each have a private bathroom while the master suite offers a walk-in closet and a multi-windowed haberdashery-inspired bathroom with marble-topped double vanity, marble-topped and wood sided bathtub surround, and separate stall shower. The backyard, lushly landscaped and clearly well watered, is fully hedged for privacy and includes a barbecue and outdoor dining area, a plunge-sized swimming pool set into a wee patch of emerald-green lawn and a long, gated driveway that runs up the side of the house leads to a detached two-car garage easily converted, per listing details, to a guesthouse.
As far as we know, neither of Joe’s boy band brothers, Nick or Kevin, currently own a home in Los Angeles. Older brother Kevin owns a 3,380-square-foot “Hamptons style home” he bought in July 2013 for $825,000, completely re-built, listed for sale a year ago at $3.35 million and recently reduced to $2.95 million while younger brother Nick, who is widely rumored to be dating the much older Kate Hudson, sold his micro-compound above the Sunset Strip earlier this year for $3.4 million
