SELLER: Jordan Feldstein
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, CA
SIZE: 3,699 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Jordan Feldstein, the long time manager of Robin Thicke and the band Maroon 5, quietly put his sleekly decorated home above Benedict Canyon in Beverly Hills up for sale in early September at $3.1 million and, according to online listings, the property is in escrow to be sold for an unknown amount to an unknown buyer. Mister Feldstein, the younger brother of Jonah Hill and the son of business manager Richard Feldstein who handles the fortunes of a bevy of famous folk such as Dr. Dre and Lenny Kravitz, is perhaps best known by gossip glossy readers as the guy who was married in 2013 for about 12 seconds to Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca Eastwood and the fella who Sharon Osbourne got in a verbal kerfuffle with then threw food and water at during Clive Davis’s 2014 Grammy party. But we digress from the real estate matters at hand…
Property records show Mister Feldstein purchased the unassuming but hardly inexpensive residence in May 2012 for $2.895 million and current listing details show the “designer done” neo-Mediterranean in the pricey but little-lauded Benedict Hills Estates enclave was built in the mid 1970s and has a total of five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 3,699-square-feet recently updated with “only the finest contemporary finishes.” Formal living and dining rooms — both with high-gloss ebonized wood floors and the former with a soaring vaulted ceiling and marble-faced fireplace — are joined by a spacious family room with bar area, built-in entertainment unit, integrated sound and projections systems, and floor-to-ceiling glass sliders that open to a tree-shaded terrace and al fresco dining area. The kitchen, decked out with slab marble counter tops on snow-white Shaker-style cabinetry and outfitted with top-grade stainless steel appliances opens through a wide wall of floor-to-ceiling glass sliders to a concrete patio with a built-in barbecue.
There are three en suite guest/family bedrooms on the upper floor plus the master suite replete with sitting area with fireplace, slender private balcony with backyard overlook, and a wood and marble bathroom outfitted with an over-sized and marble-lined steam shower, a dry sauna and an “electric toilet,” whatever that is. A staff bedroom tucked behind the laundry room looks about the size of a prison cell but does benefit from a vaulted ceiling and an attached marble bathroom. The backyard, completely shielded from neighboring properties by high hedges, thick shrubbery, and mature trees encompasses a large concrete terrace off the back of the house, a lounge area with built-in fire pit, and, cordoned off by a practical and probably necessary if unsightly child safety fence, a salt water swimming pool and integrated spa ringed by a narrow strip of lawn.
Avid celebrity real estate watchers know that Mister Feldstein’s much more famous brother Jonah Hill — one of the highest paid actors on the planet, according to Forbes, with a 2015 haul estimated at around $16 million — is also on the move. His downtown New York City loft, last listed at $3 million, is in contract to be sold for an unknown amount to an unknown buyer and his Los Angeles residence, a conscientiously over-hauled Richard Dorman-designed mid-century residence above Laurel Canyon, was put up for sale on the open market last week at $2.995 million and is already under offer, again with an unknown buyer for an unknown amount.
