SELLER: Scooter Braun
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 2,380 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: It was Our Fairy Godmother in Bel Air who first lets us know via digital epistle that pop music svengali Scooter Braun, best known as the money minting manager of Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepson and Ariana Grande, put a house he owns above the L.A.’s Sunset Strip up for sale with an asking price of $4,600,000.
Property records show Mister Braun quietly acquired the property, then on the brink of foreclosure, in June 2012 for $2,450,000 from commercial and music video director Peter Nydrle. In a September 2012 profile Mister Braun told the peeps at The New Yorker he planned to tear this house down so he could install a basketball court, but apparently that didn’t happen.
Current listing details show the existing house, walled, gated and hard up on the street, was originally built in 1940 and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,380 square feet. We think it’s probably pretty safe to assume that the buyer of the property will radically alter or even replace the existing residence with something bigger and way more sexed up but the current house, as per listing details, includes a large living room fireplace and semi-circular wall of windows, a dining room with bay window French doors that open to a city view deck, and a somewhat wee kitchen with diamond paned windows and high-grade stainless steel appliances.
Almost a year before Mister Braun bought the house now up for sale he shelled out $5.7 million for a libidinous contemporary right next door that, at the time of his purchase, had three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in about 5,000 square feet. Your Mama hears, also from Our Fairy Godmother in Bel Air, that Mister Braun plans to put this property up for sale very soon with an asking price somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million.
Its not such a surprise to this property gossip that Mister Braun would opt to lighting his real estate load in the Sunset Strip area as, we have it on good authority, he and his currently preggers South African-born philanthropist new wife, Yael Cohen, founder of the aggressively named Fuck Cancer charity, been on an extensive hunt for an A-list manse in a super-prime locale where they can settle down and raise a family.
