Adam Lambert picks up another contemporary home in Hollywood Hills West


“American Idol” alum Adam Lambert is stocking up in the Hollywood Hills.

The singer has bought a modern abode in the celebrity-popular area for $6.5 million, records show. The house is about a mile away from his other home in the area, which he had on the market last year.

Completed two years ago, the two-story dwelling sits behind gates on a quarter-acre. Pocketing doors bring the outdoors into the open-space floor plan — particularly in the center-island kitchen, where two sides of unfolding glass flank the space.


Also within more than 5,000 square feet of hardwood-lined interiors are five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a movie theater and an office. The main level holds a living room with a built-in fireplace, a dining area and a wine closet.

Out back, a turf lawn turns into an infinity-edge pool and spa with canyon views. A covered patio and outdoor kitchen, which sit below the master suite balcony, complete the setting.

It appears Lambert got a good deal for the place. Records show the house first listed last year for $7.3 million. Before that, the property traded hands last year for $6.8 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Lambert, 36, was a runner-up on “Idol” in 2009, the same year he released the album “For Your Entertainment.” In recent years, he’s been touring with rock band Queen as the lead vocalist.
