After finding quite a bit of wiggle room in his asking price, pop star and “Wiggle” singer Jason Derulo sold his modern Coconut Creek estate for $1.9 million.
Located at 7555 Northwest 39th Street, the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom house has more than 11,500 square feet of living space on roughly 2.5 acres of land. The deal breaks down to about $165 per foot.
The mansion has all the features you might expect from a pop star’s pad: Derulo converted one of the bedrooms into a mirrored dance studio and turned the estate’s guesthouse into a recording studio. He bought the house, which was built in 2009, four years ago for $1.75 million, Broward County property records show.
Originally Mediterranean in style, the singer-songwriter also heavily modernized its interiors, installing Italian marble floors and glasswork in the living room’s 30-foot atrium.
Derulo first tried to sell his estate in June 2015 for $2.9 million, telling the Wall Street Journal that he had just purchased a castle of a home in Tarzana, California, for $3.5 million and planned to move there.
The listing suffered a slew of price cuts before finally being relisted in April for $2.25 million with Alexander Goldstein and Adi Amuial of Miles Goldstein Real Estate. After one last $350,000 chop, a deal was struck, Goldstein told The Real Deal.
Born just a half hour away in Miramar, Derulo — whose real name is Jason Joel Desrouleaux — is an international pop star with platinum hits under his belt like “Talk Dirty” and “Whatcha Say.” Several celebrity websites peg his net worth between $8 million and $10 million.
Alexander Goldstein declined to disclose the buyer’s entity to TRD, saying only that he was domestic. He said despite the price reductions, Derulo’s sale is one of the most expensive to date in Coconut Creek, which typically doesn’t see houses trade in the multimillion-dollar range. The next-highest home to sell in recent history was 4591 San Mellina Drive, a 3,874-square-foot house that fetched $1.3 million in September.
