People often ask me “what famous people live around here?”
Well, you don’t have to look very hard or long for a celebrity sighting – athletes, actors, producers and musicians have long been attracted to the Westside and Santa Monica in particular.
Here is some dirt you might not have known about:
Lady Gaga was recently spotted looking at a remodeled Spanish home during a Tuesday open house. Notable architect Frank Gehry is building a new home for himself on Adelaide Drive, no doubt a masterpiece design. (Also it’s not far from our amazing listing at 323 Adelaide). Weezer lead singer, a longtime North of Montana resident, is looking to purchase a second property in the neighborhood. Before buying in Brentwood, musician Beck looked at a little house near San Vicente. Super successful actor, writer, director, producer, comedian, Jon Favreau, lives near our office. The Dark Knight, Christian Bale, owns a property in the Santa Monica canyon. Toby Maguire and his ex-wife Jennifer Meyer recently sold their 1920’s house just North of Wilshire.
Want more info or want to live like the rich and famous? Call me I’ll help you find a great house or if you have a house you want to sell, we can probably get yours sold so fast you would forget you ever lived here.
Two new listing came on the market:
222 20th Street– This house sold about a year ago in a quiet, pre-MLS sale. Turns out the owners don’t need so much space after all. It is a 6 bedroom, 8 bath for $7,795,000. In Gillette’s Regent Square tract (60X149’ lots), the home, built in 2016, is approx. 7,581 sqft. Includes a home theater, gym, wine cellar, pool and more. Last sale was in the low $7’s.
537 Georgina Avenue– is available for sale or lease. With land selling for more more than $400 per foot in this area, this 6 bedroom and 3.75 baths, for $6,000,000 will probably be razed in very near future. Large lot of 11,337 square feet. Last sold way back in 1989 for $1,000,000.
