Justin Bieber buys in Beverly Hills

Though he’s been bouncing around LA for nearly a full decade, Canadian pop crooner Justin Bieber has only ever owned one house down here. Back in 2012, while still in his teens, he infamously bought a huge Mediterranean McMansion-sorta thing out in Calabasas.

After several highly-publicized altercations with at least two of his neighbors — including a downright terroristic egg-hurling incidentheard ’round the world” — the Biebs sold the property in early 2014 for $7.2 million to its current owner, reality TV superstar Khloe Kardashian.

In the five years since, Mr. Bieber has — perhaps wisely — forgone home ownership in favor of a series of high-priced rentals. But now that the 25-year-old is all growed up and recently married to a lovely young lass named Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), he’s feelin’ the urge to put down some property roots once again.

Mr. & Mrs. Bieber

However, just because he hasn’t bought anything does not mean Mr. Bieber ain’t been looking. On the contrary — over the past few years, Mr. Bieber has browsed scores of homes all over the greater LA area. Brentwood, Encino, Bel Air, the Hollywood Hills. At one point he was looking in oddball, far-flung locations — Thousand Oaks, Pasadena and Bradbury Estates. He reportedly nearly bought a Hidden Valley compound and even toured a big mansion out in Glendora.

In the end, however, Mr. Bieber was finally reeled in by the Platinum Triangle‘s perennial allure. Records show he has just closed on a “Transitional” style home in Beverly Hills, on a quiet and unassuming cul-de-sac just off the main Benedict Canyon drag. There are only five other properties on this street, none of which are owned by celebrities. (The one possible exception is the house immediately next door, which is occupied by 92-year-old retired actress Barbara Rush.)

Mr & Mrs. Bieber’s new digs additionally back directly up to two very fancy houses — one of them owned by 26-year-old heiress/producer Erika Olde and the other owned by her mother Susan Olde. And just a couple doors away is David Geffen’s massive Jack Warner estate, which makes the new Bieber place look rather akin to a garden shed. A very, very tiny garden shed.

Anyway, the 1932-built house was originally constructed in the Monterey Colonial architectural style and owned for over 50 years by the same family. Two years ago, the property was sold for $4.5 million to Hollywood-based designer Charles Infante, who completely rebuilt and expanded the ol’ gurl into the 6,000+ square foot showplace she is today. Records reveal Mr. & Mrs. Bieber coughed up a hefty $8,500,000 for the keys.

While not particularly big, the 0.2-acre gated property is perfect for a young couple/family. There’s a two-car attached garage and a secure, pebble-filled courtyard ringed by gorgeous olive trees.

Out back, this pad is primed for a private party. Check out the negative-edge swimming pool with its nifty waterfall feature, plus a cabana with outdoor fireplace for chilly nights. And let’s not forget the convenient strip of grass for Fido’s romps (and his dirty business).

We don’t know if the Biebers are big readers. But we do know they are Evangelical Christians. Thus, Yolanda is sure they’ll both appreciate the library, with its paneled walls painted an interesting shade of blue. Such a lovely atmosphere for some Bible-studyin’ or devotionals, right?

White oak flooring runs throughout the home, and slabs of book-matched marble in the living room and kitchen add a touch of glitzy pizazz. Speaking of the kitchen, it’s got a massive center island with eat-in seating and opens (via Steelcase windows) to the backyard.

Off the kitchen is a step-down family room, and (down in the lower level) is a Art Deco-inspired wet bar/wine storage area. Somewhere there’s also a home theater. In all, the three-level structure has 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, with the master suite featuring vaulted ceilings and a fireplace.

And just for giggles, here’s how this same house looked back in 2017:

        She used to live in (and maybe still does) the old Harold Lloyd estate off B. Canyon. That house has huge Hollywood history (including a naughty Marilyn Monroe story). I know, at one point, Ron Burkle owned it, and it’s worth a fortune, so this may not be the same house.

          1. Sandy Santa Monica says:

            Yeah. I didn’t write that very clearly. When I said ‘this house’ I was talking about the house Barbara Rush currently lives in (next door to Bieber’s). She did used to live in the Lloyd house, long ago, with her husband (who was a legendary Hollywood publicist) but I assume she doesn’t live there now. I think Lachancla’s right that Burkle still owns it. Her current house must be in the same proximity however. -Break out the Crystal ball YOLANDA!

        1. LaChancla says:

          Yup and I believe Ron Burkle still owns It. It’s enormous and I doubt Barbara Rush could afford something that size LOL

  1. Ronald Brie says:

    I can’t believe he bought that small house with no privacy and no land. The street is nothing to write home about.

    1. Sam says:

      They took all the photos down on all the real estate websites already. I tried to find more photos myself but all the listings have been wiped of photos or removed.

      1. Ron Brie says:

        On Google Earth they still have an old picture of the house. It’s a gutted shell from before Bieber purchased it.

  2. Steve says:

    A very odd choice for Bieber: big house, small lot, mediocre street. No gated community = poor decision. Feminine interiors. His wife must have picked this out.

  3. Rabbi Hedda LaCasa says:

    The master bedroom is a feng shui nightmare! The apex beam bisects the bed and will terminate boudoir passion and the marriage. A transverse beam cleaves the sleeping occupants through their abdomens and will induce unpleasant indigestive symptomology. Prevent marital misfortune, spicy food intolerance, and acid reflux by installing a canopied bed pronto!
