Gwen and Gavin Up In Summit Circle

BUYER: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
LOCATION: Crest Place, Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $13,250,000 (sale)
SIZE: 9,001 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Since all the children seemed to enjoy seeing the photos of the Los Feliz house this rock and roll couple is selling, we thought we would bring you a few photos of their new house up in the Beverly Hills. For those of you that this is old news, just chill out and relax and we'll bring you something new tomorrow.

Ev-er-ee body, please pay attention here...these photos do NOT show the house decorated as the couple currently lives in it...these photos were taken when the previous owner still owned the property. Although that owner bought the house fully furnished, we can only hope what we see in the photos is a reflection of the house being poorly staged and that no one actually lived up in this place looking like a damn W Hotel.

Surely everyone remembers that this is the house that Jennifer Lopez once owned. In fact she married that skeletal skinny singer up in the backyard of this house. This new man/huzband Marc Anthony then took her back east to live in a suburban Long Island mansion he previously lived in with his ex-wife Dayanara Torrez. Which we think is a little tacky, but no body asked us about that.

Note: Your Mama recognizes we might not have the name of the ex-wife correct. Your Mama can not be bothered to go find out this morning. And honestly, we don't care what her name is, no offense to the lady.

Anyhoo, in 2004, Miz Lopez sold this home and all it's furniture to young and rich Sam Nazarian, a film producer and night club owner, for $12,500,000. He only lived here for a short time before putting it back on the market for a staggering $15,500,000.

Stefani and Rossdale stepped in and purchased the home in August of 2006 for a reported $13,250,000. The house is a far cry from their cozy, livable, and personal Spanish mansion in Los Feliz. We can only hope Stefani has gotten a nice gay decorator up in there to transform the place from looking like a hotel lobby and into a home.

Is that glass tile on the bathroom walls? Gorgeous. I'm sure Gwen has made it homey by now. Thank you for featuring this one Mama.

Have you seen on the recent new photos of GoogleMaps what Gwen & Gavin have done to that lovely garden in front of the house?
