He’s sung about and dreamed of becoming a “Billionaire.” Well, Hawaii’s Grammy-winning music star Bruno Mars is en route there, acquiring a $3.254 million manse-cave in Los Angeles.
According to the Real Estalker website, which tracks celebrity real estate sales, Mars is believed to be the unnamed celebrity of a Los Angeles-based trust which purchased the valuable property in Laurel Canyon last month.
A year ago, the previous owner paid $1.235 million for the property — and resold it to the future billionaire.
The property is huge for a single guy, with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, but boasts amenities befitting a star: a motor court façade with eight marble columns, parking space for 10, oversized 11-foot double entry doors, retractable floor to ceiling glass doors, Swarovski light fixtures, Miele appliances, a backyard pool offering spectacular city view, a steam shower large enough for two, a gym and massage room, a media and music room, central air-conditioning and more.
Sounds like a mansion made for partying.
Of course, the site comes with security cameras worthy of a pop star — to keep an eye on roving paparazzi.
Mighty impressive digs for a 26-year-old singer, composer, producer and popster from the islands. If you happen to be in L.A. and in roaming mood, the address is 7979 Mulholland Drive.
No word on when, or if, Mars plans to move in.
