‘Bleeding Love’ Singer Leona Lewis Sells Hollywood Hills Home
Celebrity homes often leave small reminders of the person who lived there — from a framed jersey to a shiny plaque on the wall. Leona Lewis’ home paints the picture of a Grammy-nominated pop star with a love for glitz and glam. Step inside the front the door and behold a grand piano beneath a sparkling chandelier and a painting, perhaps a self-portrait of the chart-topping British songstress. Move into the dining room and be met with another vintage chandelier over a mantel framed with, that’s right, angel wings.
Lewis purchased the West Hollywood Hills property for $1.85 million in 2009 under her father’s name (it’s unclear whether Aural “Joe” Lewis bought the place for his daughter or just listed his name on the deed to preserve the rising star’s privacy). Two years later, Lewis listed the place for $2.5 million and almost sold it. According to the listing description, the buyer couldn’t get loan approval.
This didn’t deter Lewis from selling, however. She quickly dropped her asking price by $300,000, and eight months later, the price cut paid off. Lewis sold the place this month for $2.0735 million.
The Nichols Canyon estate is located in a private, gated enclave. Although described by real estate agent Annie Challis as a “mini estate,” the home measures 3,946 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. Built in 1999, the interior has been remodeled with magazine-worthy white decor and finishes throughout. The property spans .75 acres with a large pool and lushly landscaped gardens.
Lewis made her entrance into the pop music scene after winning British talent competition “The X Factor.” She has since been nominated for three Grammys and seven Brit Awards (the British equivalent to the Grammy Awards), with 20 million record sales under her belt.
Grant Linscott of Keller Williams Realty represented the buyer.
