Jonas Brothers set real estate records in Encino
Musicians and their wives bought pair of homes just three miles apart for combined $34M
UPDATED, Nov. 13, 9:40 a.m.: Brotherly love is alive and well between Nick and Joe Jonas. The brothers spent a combined $34.1 million on homes in Encino, setting neighborhood records in the process.
Nick, the younger of the two, and his wife Priyanka Chopra bought a 20,000-square-foot spread for $20 million, while his older brother Joe and his wife Sophie Turner spent $14.1 million for a 15,000-square-foot home just three miles away, according to the Wall Street Journal. Both are new construction homes.
Chopra and Nick’s modern-style home has seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, high ceilings, and ample outdoor space. Joe and Turner’s home, while smaller, has 10 bedrooms and 14 batrhooms. There’s a wine cellar, home theater, gym, and an office.
The two deals are records for the neighborhood, which neighbors Sherman Oaks and Tarzana on the San Fernando Valley side of the Santa Monica Mountains.
Carl Gambino of Westside Estate Agency represented the brothers. Maya Librush and Craig Knizek of The Agency were the listing agents on Nick Jonas’ purchase, while Adi Livyatan of Rodeo Realty and Dennis Chernov of Keller Williams were the listing agents on Joe Jonas’s purchase.
Gambino has worked with the brothers before. In 2016, he represented Joe Jonas when he bought a home in Sherman Oaks for $3.7 million.
Gambino also represented Nick Jonas when he bought a Beverly Hills home for $6.5 million (and later sold it for $6.9 million).
The brothers and their eldest sibling, Kevin Jonas, broke up their hugely successful pop band in 2013, but reunited earlier this year. They’ve sold over 17 million records. [WSJ] — Dennis Lynch
