Rocker Chris Cester sells Hollywood Hills home to former UFC fighter


Australian drummer and vocalist Chris Cester of rock band Jet fame has sold his home in Hollywood Hills West for $2.75 million. The buyers were former UFC fighter and Fox analyst Kenny Florian and his wife, actress-model Clark Gilmer.

The remodeled English Country-style home, built in the 1920s, centers on a formal living room with barrel vault ceilings, dark wood floors and a fireplace. A chandelier-topped dining room done in zebra-print wallpaper sits off the living room.

Other spaces include a step-down den and a kitchen with a center island. Two master suites are among the four bedrooms and four bathrooms.


Outdoors, hedged grounds of about a third of an acre feature a swimming pool and spa with a waterfall feature. A detached garage/studio sits behind gates at the front of the home.

Cester, 33, formed Jet with his older brother, Nic Cester, and Cameron Muncey, in 2001. Following the group’s disbanding in 2011, he formed the electro-rock group DamnDogs.

He also has written soundtrack material for the film “Spider-Man 3” (2007) as well as the TV shows “Dancing With the Stars” (2011) and “Chuck” (2007).

He works as a UFC analyst on Fox and UFC Fight Night as well as a commentator on the ABC series “Battlebots.”

Gilmer, 26, was a contestant on the 11th season of “America’s Next Top Model” and also appeared on the Bravo series “The Millionaire Matchmaker.”
