After purchasing a posh, $25.8 million pad in the uber-exclusive enclave of Beverly Park, CA, the pop star Justin Bieber and his model wife, Hailey Baldwin, are letting go of their smaller but no less impressive Beverly Hills mansion, Variety reports.
The updated abode is listed for $9 million with Josh Altman at Douglas Elliman. Bieber and Baldwin had picked up the home in March 2019 for $8.5 million.
Bieber appeared to have a change of heart just months later, when he posted a photo of the home on Instagram, putting the word out to his 150 million followers: “I think I wanna sell my home in Beverly Hills who wants it.”
Since then, the home has been staged and appears to have been stripped of the star’s personal effects.
Why did Bieber buy?
“Both of them are excellent neighborhoods,” says Sally Forster Jones, an agent with Compass. Of the listing now on the market, she says, “This is a great area in Beverly Hills and a great street.”
The completely redone gated traditional from the 1930s is no slouch. With 6,132 square feet of living space, the spread has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
The layout offers seamless indoor-outdoor living space with steel-case windows and doors that open up and allow natural light to fill the home, while looking out on the property grounds.
The interior layout includes a living room, great room, office, theater, wine cellar, and bar. The sleek chef’s kitchen includes white oak cabinets, marble island, and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.
A master suite features soaring vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, bathroom, and custom closet.
With tall lush greenery, the backyard boasts an infinity pool, a water feature, barbecue, and a cabana with a fireplace.
Forster Jones says the $9 million listing is “relatively more modest,” but it’s far from slumming it.
She notes that Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the world’s richest man, just snapped up the property next door to add to his massive compound. Perhaps he’ll add this place to his cart?
Going big in Beverly Park
If reports are to be believed, the two jumped at the chance to pick up an even more elaborately exclusive spot in Beverly Park, a guard-gated enclave within Beverly Hills.
The seven-bedroom mansion they purchased this summer had been on and off the market since 2018, initially priced at $42 million. Since then, the home had been additionally updated, and discounted by millions, eventually selling to the couple for $25.8 million.
The substantially bigger property is set behind gates on 2.5 acres and features 11,000 square feet of space.
Amenities include a large living room, library, dining room, eat-in kitchen, and adjacent family room. The spread also features a home theater, wine cellar, and gym.
Massive grounds are graced with lawns, a koi pond, infinity pool, sport court, and barbecue with pizza oven.
“People are much more portable today about their living situation—especially when it comes to celebrities and the uber-wealthy,” says Cara Ameer, a licensed real estate agent in California and Florida.
“Regardless of when they bought one property, if something comes on the market that they really want to buy, they do it.”
Ameer added, “It can be very difficult to time the market trying to find what you want when you want it. In this case, the [Beverly Park] property became available at an extremely good deal, and so he jumped.”
As she points out, stars are no different from us.
“Celebrities want deals just as much as everyone else. It’s just on a completely different level,” she says.
