Singer Chris Brown’s new place in Tarzana has 16 security cameras
Perhaps singer Chris Brown should consider getting out of real estate altogether and opt for hotel living.
Several years back there was the saga of the neighbor complaints about the graffiti artwork at his Hollywood Hills home, which sold in 2014 for $1.69 million.
This year a woman broke into another of his residences and hung out like the star of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” sleeping in his bed and cooking in the kitchen.
This month several media sites reported a break-in at his Tarzana house that resulted in his aunt being locked in a closet.
Wait, what? Brown has a place in Tarzana?
Yep. He bought the gated contemporary in June for $4.35 million, public records show.
Described as a solar home and “smart house” in the listing details, the security includes 16 cameras, an alarm system and wireless controls. So much for that.
Set on three-quarters of an acre, the residence is entered through a two-story foyer. A grand staircase connects the two stories of living space. Walls of glass and balconies take in views of the mountains and cityscape.
The home theater features 14 recliners and a 120-inch wall screen. Living, family and dining rooms, a bonus room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms are also within the more than 8,300 square feet of living space. There’s an oversized three-car garage and motor court parking for 10 cars.
An outdoor living room with a full kitchen, a saltwater swimming pool with a shallow shelf and spa, a waterfall, three fire pits and an expansive lawn complete the grounds.
Brown, 26, released his sixth studio album, “X,” last year. He has been in such films as “Think Like a Man” (2012) and “Stomp the Yard” (2007).
Stephanie Vitacco of Keller Williams was the listing agent before the property was withdrawn from the Multiple Listing Service.
