Charlie Puth is already seeking profit on Hollywood Hills lair

He purchased estate last December for $1.9M; just listed it for $2.2M

It’s been barely seven months since Charlie Puth tweeted,All moved into my new house!!” But the 24-year-old “See You Again” heartthrob already wants to peace out. 

“It’s too big, too much house for him,” a source with knowledge of the matter told The Real Deal. “He’s staying in L.A., but moving into something smaller and more central in Beverly Hills. Better for his age and lifestyle.”

Puth listed his 4,350-square-foot Hollywood Hills home located in the charming, tucked away Whitley Heights neighborhood for $2.2 million — a $300,000 jump from the $1.9 million he spent on the house late last year. Mica Rabineau of Nourmand & Associates is the listing agent.

The Real Deal popped into the open house and witnessed just how little time Puth spent in the Mediterranean-style home. The records made it on the walls and the piano was set up to face views of the hills, but there wasn’t much in the way of lived-in accoutrements.

Built in 1954, the Old Hollywood Italianate home features terraces that overlook the bright lit-sprawl of Hollywood. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom, three-story villa also has a detached guesthouse a la Kato Kaelin. The grounds feature a heated saltwater pool and hot tub. There are motorized awnings and dual-direction windows — all powered with solar electricity.

While the house on Whitley Terrace wasn’t the right residence for Puth, it is ideal for another recording artist, as it is already outfitted with a recording studio. Maybe even a Puth fan — if there is one who can swallow the $300,000 price leap after just over 200 days.
