Jared Leto has certainly had his fair share of success in the world of Hollywood – including winning an Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG Award, and Independent Spirit Award – and is finally bidding adieu to his starter home in Hollywood Hills. The “Suicide Squad” star is listing the property just under $2 million after purchasing it back in 2006 for $1.65 million.
Built in 1955, the vine-covered, two-story, 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home sits on a private 0.29-acre property that’s tucked behind walls and gates, and is a stone’s throw away from all the big-time movie studios in Hollywood.
The living room is spacious yet cozy with a quaint fireplace. Chocolate-brown hardwood floors connect the living space with the formal dining room that features a traditional bay window to allow in plenty of natural light. The family room is extremely spacious and comes equipped with a wet bar and abutting recording studio.
The white eat-in kitchen is drenched in beige floor tiles, boasts top-notch appliances, and overlooks the main living area for simplicity in entertaining.
Two of the four bedrooms in the 4,021-square-foot home are master suites with loads of closet space and spacious marble-clad en-suite bathrooms.
Outside, the grounds mimic that of a resort thanks to the lush tropical landscaping, grassy yard, expansive terrace, swimming pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and barbecue, and built-in fire pit.
Leto – who is part of the music duo “Thirty Seconds to Mars” with his brother Shannon – recently made a big off-market purchase of a storied complex in the Laurel Canyon area of L.A. for $5 million in late 2014. The industrial compound was constructed back in the 1940s and was used as a secret military film studio until the late 1960s. It was the structure where many Hollywood filmmakers and photographers with security clearance made military training movies under wraps.
The structure encompasses over 50,000-square-feet of multi-levels that includes eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, multiple kitchen spaces, various living and entertaining spaces, art galleries, and a long swimming pool. The home is situated on a 1.7-acre lot and is hidden behind a gated driveway and leaf-covered wall.
The last time the compound was involved in a real estate transaction was back in 1994 when the property sold for $750,000 to artist Mark Lipscomb and attorney John Ladner. It’s been on and off the market a few times before Mr. Leto nabbed it: it was listed for $6.3 million in 2010, and was relisted for $5.75 million in 2012.
In addition to adding to his list of real estate conquests, Leto is also continuing to add to his Hollywood resume. The Method actor will soon be starring in the upcoming “Blade Runner 2049,” the sequel to the original Ridley Scott-produced thriller “Blade Runner.”
