The deal for the four-bedroom Southern Colonial in Santa Monica wasn’t “Super Bad” for Jonah Hill, but in Los Angeles’ sluggish luxury market, it wasn’t a steal.
The actor paid $6.8 million for the 3,100-square-foot home that includes 4.5 bathrooms, according to Variety. The seller was singer/songwriter Jesse Jo Stark, who bought the two-story home for $4.6 million five years ago, according to the report.
It features a tree-shaded, private backyard with a swimmer’s pool, spa and patio off the main house. A guesthouse has a bedroom suite, fireplace, sauna and patio. It faces the faces Santa Monica Canyon.
L.A. luxury sales have been in something of a tailspin over the last year, with some notable exceptions, including most recently the $100 million sale of NBC Universal vice chairman Ron Meyer’s Malibu mansion to Whatsapp co-founder Jan Koum.
Meanwhile, Hill, whose star has been on the rise since films like “Superbad” and “Moneyball,” and most recently the Netflix series, “Maniac,” owns real estate on both coasts. In 2016, he paid $9.2 million for a 3,200-square-foot condo in Manhattan. [Variety] — Alison Stateman
