Sorry, y’all, but we don’t have any truly spooky stories to enthrall you with this Halloween. What we do have is a brief story about two celebrities engaging in a covert real estate deal on one of the most star-packed streets in the Hollywood Hills. Creepy? Not really. Just a ho-hum bit of celebrity real estate incest, if you will.
Yolanda hears from Mr. Deep Throat that a flag-lot house in the Laurel Canyon area of the Hills just sold for somewhere around $2,600,000. The seller’s identity is shielded behind a blind trust, but Yolanda’s pal Vlad the Revealer at Celebrity Address Aerial says he’s got it on unimpeachable authority that it is none other than Anthony Kiedis. The buyer, Yolanda happens to know, is a young lady in her 20s who comes from a very famous family. Her name is Georgia May Jagger. Yes, that Jagger.
Mr. Kiedis, whose birthday is tomorrow (happy early birthday!) is the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which he co-founded (so to speak) back in 1983. Since then, the group has released 11 albums, won six Grammies, have sold over 80 million records worldwide, and have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
With great fame and fortune came the opportunity for the Tesla-driving Mr. Kiedis’s epic (or notorious) rock & roll lifestyle. He has frequently struggled with drug use over the years and by his own admission has bedded hundreds of sexual partners. More interesting to Yolanda, however, is his rockstar-style property portfolio, which includes houses on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, a house on Malibu’s Point Dume, and a condo in Las Vegas. There was also a house just above the Sunset Strip that he bought in 2013 for $3,650,000 from designer Waldo Fernandez and sold in 2015 for $4,200,000 to Dave Demattei & Patrick Wade, a couple gents who are bigshots at Lucky Brand jeans.
24-year-old Georgia May Jagger’s daddy Mick Jagger is, of course, also a rock & roll icon who really should require no introduction from silly ol’ Yolanda. Her mother is the former model Jerry Hall, who this year provided great fodder for tabloids worldwide when she became the fourth wife of 84-year-old billionaire Rupert Murdoch. For what it’s worth, the couple seem quite happy and playful together.
As for young Miss Jagger, as far as we can tell she is the fifth of Mick Jagger’s seven children (an eighth is currently expected, FYI). She’s also a British fashion model who has worked for many top designers. Although the naysayers may claim Miss Jagger’s last name helped her in the business — and that may be true — we can’t deny Miss Jagger makes a great model. Seriously, Google or IMDB her or something. This chick is drop-dead gorgeous.
But on to the subject at hand — the house. Mr. Kiedis paid $1,995,000 for the property in September 2012. Mr. Deep Throat, as we previously mentioned, whispered that the deal went down for somewhere around $2,600,000, although property records have not yet been updated to reflect the transaction. Since this was an off-market transfer, we regret to inform y’all that we have no current photos of the property.
But! We do have plenty of images and info from the 2012 sale, so we’ll show you those. Just keep in mind that the photos and description are from four years ago. The property may or may not have been altered in the years since.
The blocky contemporary-ish house sits on a prive flag lot of 1/3rd an acre with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a comfortable but not large 3,038 square feet of living space. Naturally, the lot is completely walled and gated for celebrity-style privacy.
There is, per the listing, an open floor plan with hardwood floors, an “updated” kitchen, and a skylight-having living/dining room combo.
The master bedroom is rather lovely with its minimalistic decor. Yolanda loves the big-picture windows.
A white picket micro-deck leads out to the backyard, which is surprisingly mostly non-landscaped. We actually think the natural nature vibe is a great departure from the oft too-obsessively manicured yards to which we’ve become accustomed.
Out back, there’s a pavestone-surrounded swimming pool with separate spa.
Some of Miss Jagger’s nearest new neighbors include One Direction’s Niall Horan (his $4 million Frank Gehry-designed house is almost directly across the street and is currently undergoing major renovations) and Lady Gaga, who recently slammed down $5,250,000 for the idiosyncratic Frank Zappa estate.
Poor Miss Jagger. Having to face GaGa’s big apple bottom every morning on her way to whatever she does is scary enough. Right?
