One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson Lists Calabasas Compound (EXCLUSIVE)

location: Calabasas, Calif.
price: $13.999 million
size: 9,659 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms plus two guesthouses

Louis Tomlinson, one-fourth of screamingly successful English-Irish boy band One Direction, listed his secluded compound on a private line in the semi-remote Monte Nido area of the rugged mountains between Malibu and Calabasas with an asking price of $13.999 million. The “X Factor” alum, currently working on solo projects that by his own account are in the vein of Oasis and the Arctic Monkeys, purchased the bucolic, 4.69-acre spread in late 2015 for exactly $10 million and in March 2017, shortly after the purchase of another multi-million home in the Hollywood Hills and right around the time he was arrested for battery at LAX for attacking a paparazzo, the property came up for rent at $40,000 per month.
The 9,659-square-foot Santa Barbara Spanish-style main house, with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, features five fireplaces with tile accented carved limestone mantels, high ceilings with chunky alder wood ceiling beams and lustrous, hand-hewn walnut wood floorboards. There are formal living and dining rooms, a fully paneled double-height library with second floor gallery, a massive eat-in kitchen, a double-height family room, a professional-quality screening room and a basement level entertainment/games room.
The park-like compound additionally features a guardhouse, two guesthouses, a fitness pavilion and a Japanese-style teahouse atop a small rise planted with grapevines. There are extensive limestone terraces, an outdoor living room with built-in barbecue area, a resort-worthy swimming pool and spa lined with mosaic tiles and a scenic babbling brook with bridge, waterfall and koi pond.
In the fall of 2016, the deep-pocketed 26-years old boy bander paid $7.3 million for a 6,000-square-foot Georgian Moderne residence in the celeb-saturated Outpost Estates area of Los Angeles that was once owned by the late and legendary music promoter and booking agent Ian Copeland. Cleaved to a steep hillside above Hollywood, the city-view residence has four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and sleekly renovated interiors that spill out to a palm-shaded terrace and infinity edged swimming pool and spa cantilevered out over the hillside with panoramic views.

      Variety, Architectural Digest, and the local high-end real estate blogs say it’s Louis’ house. The Sun tabloid in the UK says it’s Liam’s house. I know who I find more credible.

    To this day I don’t understand why he needed two houses. He’s only ever been seen living in the 7.3 mil one and he rented another one before. So who lived in this 10 mil mansion? Or did he just buy it to sell it? Hm

    Well, it’s a beautiful mansion that’s for sure. (Though knowing its price I would have a hard time living in it! xD I’d always fear ruining or breaking something in it…)
    I wonder why Louis is getting rid of it so soon after purchasing it though.

  3. A. Mirza says:

    Maybe – after all it was rented out before, so probably it was an investment. He might not have found a permanent renter and found it too much of a hustle to keep it?
