Teen singer Justin Bieber has officially reached adulthood. In honor of the birthday milestone, Bieber reportedly chose to drop a very grown-up $10.8 million on a modern mansion in L.A, according to the Daily Mail.
The $10 million-plus Hollywood Hills real estate purchase is a relatively small sum for the teen heartthrob; Forbes ranks Bieber number two on the list of Best-Paid Celebrities under 30, earning a reported $53 million in 2011.
Bieber’s new home is not the typical Mediterranean-style mansion popular to the area. Designed by architects Jeffrey and Rochelle Mills of Mills Studio, the home is made up of glass and steel boxes that appear to float above the home’s large pool and patio. With a whopping 9,400-square-feet of living space, the 5-bedroom home has plenty of room for the singer, his girlfriend Selena Gomez as well as his entourage of security and managers.
Bieber made his music debut in 2009 after a manager discovered YouTube videos of the singer. After releasing his first album with relative success, the singer reached international stardom with his song “Baby.”
The home features plenty of celebrity real estate amenities: glass chandeliers, retractable glass walls, gourmet kitchen, gym and massage room.
In keeping with the California lifestyle, the home features several outdoor spaces with enclosed gardens, terraces, and outdoor rooms.
The only thing holding Bieber back from moving in immediately is the previous tenant. As reported earlier, the rumor is that Ashton Kutcher has been renting the home for $50,000 a month.
The listing is held by David Findley of Partners Trust Real Estate Brokerage & Acquisitions.
