Rapper Eve’s former home looks to become a hit in Hollywood Hills

It’s no Garden of Eden, but this Mediterranean-style home in the Hollywood Hills was once the house of Eve.

The recently renovated spot is the former home of Eve Jihan Jeffers, the rapper responsible for early 2000s hits such as “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” and “Love Is Blind.”

Now listed for $1.995 million, the 4,297-square-foot house features sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows that create bright living spaces. Tile lines the floor plan, which includes a living room with a high ceiling and a chef’s kitchen.

Dark hardwood flooring runs throughout the second floor, which holds four bedrooms. The master suite features a walk-in closet and a fireplace.

A balcony looks out onto the canyon and the patio below, which spans almost the entire length of the home.

Eve sold the home for $1.325 million in 2011, public records show. Nima Tehrany of Keller Williams Realty holds the current listing.

A mainstay in the group of female MCs who emerged in the late ’90s, Eve, 39, released four albums, including “Scorpion” (2001) and “Eve-Olution” (2002). Her hit single with Gwen Stefani, “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” won the inaugural Grammy for best rap/sung collaboration in 2002.

In addition to her hip-hop career, she has starred in three “Barbershop” films.
