Adam Levine Quietly Unloads in the Hollywood Hills

SELLER: Adam Levine
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $3,550,000
SIZE: 2,045 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Your Mama has twice now heard—first from an anonymous tipster and then from The Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial—that tatted up Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine—who moonlights as a coach on The Voice—quietly unloaded his Mark Haddawy decorated bachelor pad above L.A.'s Bronson Canyon to a couple of non-celebs for $3,550,000.

Property records show the three-time Grammy winning singer/songwriter picked up the property in November 2005 for $3,195,000. If the children put on their thinking caps they may recall that way back in September (2012) our uncannily connected informant Betty Butterlips snitched to Your Mama that Mister Levine had furtively floated his completely re-worked 1940s ranch style residence in the Hollywood Hills on the off-market market with an asking price in the high three millons.

In case any of y'all missed it, the house and all its sophisticated fittings and impressively pedigreed mid-century modern furniture was featured in the March 2012 issue of the increasingly celebrity-centric Architectural Digest.

Listing details from 2009 when Mister Levine put the modestly sized 2,045 square foot house out for least at ten grand a month describe the house as having three bedrooms (plus a separate guest unit) and four bathooms while the A.D. article reveals the most recent overhaul by Mister Haddawy reduced the bedrooms in the main house to just one. For the record, the L.A. County Tax Man shows the property has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

A terrace that meanders along the back of the house has an outdoor fireplace and sweeping views over Hollywood. A curvaceous stairway twists and turns down the hillside to a roomy, semi-circular terrace where Mister Levine replaced a glorious and quintessentially Tinseltown oval-shaped swimming pool with a much smaller, plunge-sized rectangle pool and adjoining spa.

Last October (2012) the 30-something year old model-dating playa dropped $4,380,000 for a gated mini-compound in a discreet gated enclave above Benedict Canyon in Beverly Hills (CA). Your Mama has repeatedly heard Mister Levine immediately embarked on a significant overhaul of the house and property and iffin we were the betting type—and we most certainly are not—we'd wager both our long bodied bitches, Linda and Beverly, that the renovations wear spear headed once again by Mister Haddawy.

I agree about AD magazine Mama. Its a shell of what it used to be when I was younger. I cant stand Levine. He was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth, his music all sounds the same, and his comments about 'leaving the US' because his team didn't win, speaks volumes about him. Go!! Leave!!

Seems like just one of the great injustices of life that the hot ones with a gem of an MCM turn out to be not only douchebags, but straight douchebags.


Judging from that monster stairway from the street to the front door, it's no wonder he stays in shape -- perhaps escorting the latest conquest on her walk of shame back to the car up on the street...

Hate all you want, Adam wasn't raised with a silver spoon in his mouth. He wasn't destitute but he wasn't rich. He's built a successful career and works hard. You don't have to like his personality but from the tone of your comment I doubt anyone likes yours, either.
