SELLER: Adam Levine
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, CA
SIZE: 7,100 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: With his first baby on the way, pop rocker Adam Levine hoisted his freshly remodeled Beverly Hills home on the open market with an asking price of $17.5 million. The three-time Grammy-winning Maroon 5 lead singer and “The Voice” coach acquired the 3.66-acre canyon-view estate, part of a tiny and unheralded gated enclave perched along a ridge above Benedict Canyon, in October 2012 for $4.83 million.
So this property gossip was told, Mister Levine engaged the services of skilled L.A-based designer designer Mark Haddawy who completely re-imagined and re-built the entire residence in a manner, according to current online marketing materials, that exudes “architectural perfection and timeless style.” The sprawling, single-level residence measures in at about 7,100-square-feet with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms and listing details describe the vast open-plan living/dining/kitchen space as “one of the best and most dramatic living/great rooms in Los Angeles.” The house also includes a media/screening room and den/library plus a separate gym/spa facility and a two-story “car collector’s garage with elevated lift and speak easy card room.” In the living room area, which features a deliciously voluminous and sky-lit exposed beam ceiling and an angled river rock fireplace, a wide expanse of glass sliders opens to the backyard that incorporates vast flagstone terraces, a newly installed swimming pool, and a championship sized tennis court discreetly nestled in to hillside below the house.
Mister Levine and his currently pregger missus, Namibian-born Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo, are much in the mood to change-up their living circumstances. In May 2013 he sold his suave bachelor pad in the Los Feliz are of Los Angeles for $3.55 million and in April of this year (2016), having purchased it only about 1.5 years earlier for $4.5 million, the almost painfully comely couple put their 2,800-square-foot, one-bedroom and two-bathroom co-operative loft in a classic cast iron building in lower Manhattan’s Soho ‘hood up for grabs at $5,500,000.
