Bruno Mars Net Worth: Singer Sells LA Mansion for $3.3 Million
Bruno Mars recently bid farewell to his starter home located in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles. Variety reported that the "Marry You" singer has sold the property to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" executive producer Jill Leiderman and Emmy Award-winning producer Rob Cohen for $3,347,500.
According to the report, 30-year-old Mars first bought the house in 2012 for around $3.24 million, giving him a roughly $100,000 profit.
The house features a sleek and modern take on a 1960s bungalow. It has 4,064 square feet, three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Interior details include 12-foot-high marble columns, tall glass sliders, and an open floor plan. The master bedroom is said to have built-in heated floors, a bedroom-sized dressing room, and an expansive bathroom that includes a spa, gym, sauna, and steam shower.
Outside, the property includes a swimming pool which overlooks the panoramic view of the San Fernando Valley. Since his purchase, Mars added a gated motor court, a garage for 10 cars, and a comprehensive security system.
Mars, who is famous for his song "Billionaire," is on his way to becoming one in real life. According to Forbes, Mars earned $40 million this year alone. His 2015 hit single, "Uptown Funk," spent 14 consecutive weeks at the top of the billboard charts, solidifying his place on the Celebrity 100 list.
In 2014, Mars was included in Forbes' "30 Under 30" list. Although he wrote "The Lazy Song," Mars is far from taking things slowly. He has sold more than 100 million singles and albums worldwide, and won two Grammy Awards in his young career.
According to LA Times, Mars sold another property in May this year. He let go of his four-bedroom home in Hawaii for $2.7 million. It is said to have 4,124 square foot of living space, showcasing "reclaimed driftwood columns, stone floors, and dark wood moulding and ceiling treatments." Mars actually lost around $400,000 in the sale, as he initially bought the estate for $3.1 million in 2012.
Mars' current home is a 9,033-square-foot mansion in Fryman Canyon, Los Angeles, which he bought in 2014 for a whopping $6.5 million. According to Variety, the exclusive neighborhood is home to a slew of Hollywood celebrities, including George Clooney, Teri Hatcher and Julie Bowen.
