Chris Brown Lists Hollywood Hills House
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 3,000 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: The tooth-monster graffiti that so incensed his neighbors is all gone and— no doubt much to the delight of those angry and annoyed neighbors—always controversial R&B/pop entertainer Chris Brown, has put his high-contemporary Hollywood Hills house on the open market with an asking price of $1,920,000.
Mister Brown, who is still on probation for his 2009 Grammys eve assault of his then girlfriend Rihanna, was arrested (again) in late October (2013) for assaulting a photographer in Washington, D.C. He's currently checked into his second (court ordered) residential anger management rehab facility after he was kicked out of the first facility because he threw a rock through his momma's car window after a family therapy session. Anyways, Mister Brown's obvious personal issues aside...
Property records (and scads of reports from the time) show the Grammy-winning entertainer acquired the multi-story hillside residence in the so-called Hollywood Dell 'hood in the foothills above Hollywood in October 2011 for $1,550,000.
Current listing information shows the decidedly contemporary, four-plus story, elevator-accessed house, designed by architect Jay Vanos, has three bedrooms and three bathrooms in about 3,000 square feet of sun-splashed interior space and with glass walls, soaring ceilings, and city lights views. The high-tech interiors include an extravagant LED lighting program, a snazzy Italian kitchen, and a home automation system.
Outdoor living spaces include a couple of fire pits, a projection screen, stone waterfalls, a green roof, and an LED- and swim jet-equipped swim swimming on top of the street level garage and the studio space above it.
quickly ran afoul of his West Hollywood neighbors, too, and first listed the 3.5 bathroom open-plan penthouse in May 2012 for $1.895 million. It was taken off the market in early 2013 but popped back up in July with a lower asking price of $1,695,000.
Back in mid-November gossip juggernaut TMZ reported Mister Brown made an offer for a house in a star-studded gated enclave in Malibu.
