Adam Lambert of “American Idol” fame has bought a home in Hollywood Hills West for $2.995 million.
Close to Sunset Strip to be convenient but far enough away to take in the city views, the Modern-style house was built in 1947 and has been renovated. A sweeping exterior staircase follows the shape of a curved wall with a glass brick window.
The nearly 3,800 square feet of living space includes a dining room with a floor-to-ceiling climate-controlled wine room, an oversized kitchen with commercial-grade appliances and a diner-style booth/breakfast room, a den with a fireplace, a screening room and a gym.
The master suite has a fireplace, a sitting area and a spa-like bathroom for a total of three bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Ferns and lush landscaping fill the courtyard-style backyard, which features a grotto spa.
Lambert, 32, was a runner-up on “Idol” in 2009, the same year he released the album “For Your Entertainment.” While he has continued to release albums and tour, he has been doing soundtrack work for television as well as acting. Since last year, he has been on five episodes of “Glee.
He'll be touring this summer with Queen in North America, Asia and Australia. L.A. fans can catch Queen and Lambert at the Forum on July 3.
