Katy Perry Lists Hollywood Hills Home Once Shared With Russell Brand for $6.925 Million
Katy Perry and Russell Brand finalized their divorce in July 2012, and by most accounts have moved on with their lives — Perry dated singer John Mayer for a while, and Brand has been spotted with model Zara Martin in London.
However, a few links to their relationship still remain; namely real estate. Not only do the two own an apartment in New York — one they’ve had listed for several years — but they own another residence in Hollywood Hills that Perry just listed on the open market for $6.925 million.
According to property records, Brand and Perry bought the home, located at 8159 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069, for $6.5 million and reportedly never lived there. Perry has been trying to quietly sell the home without officially listing it for quite some time. Sticking it on the MLS as an official sale seems to be her final attempt to dump the property.
Besides the celebrity ownership, the 3-acre estate has quite a bit going for it. Built in 1921, the home is near the Chateau Marmont and Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Storer House. Perry’s 2-story property is gated and private, with 8,835 square feet of living space, 7 bedrooms and 11 baths. The property also includes two guest houses, a carriage house and the ubiquitous celebrity-style pool with waterfall.
The home’s listing is held by Beverly Hills real estate agent Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties. Using Zillow’s mortgage calculator, the monthly payment on Perry’s home would be $24,471, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year mortgage.
