    Default Bruno Mars splashes out $3.3m on LA mansion‎

    He famously sang he wanted to be a billionaire.
    And while he surely has a way to go on that score, Bruno Mars has earned enough to splash out on a $3.3m mansion in Los Angeles.
    The R&B crooner is moving to the trendy Laurel Canyon area, which has been a home to a host of celebrities, including the likes of magician Harry Houdini, music icon Frank Zappa and macho sex symbol George Clooney.

    The 26-year-old certainly seems to have plumped for luxury when it came to selecting his new abode, which was reportedly purchased by a blind trust on his behalf.
    It has three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and sits on a generous 4,064 square feet.
    Visitors to the home are greeted by eight, chunky Calcutta marble columns, a style much favoured by eminent 19th century Glasgow architect Alexander 'Greek' Thompson.
    Custom-made 11-foot tall double front doors open into a small foyer, which leads to a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area.
    The house is covered in chocolate coloured hardwood floors and long walls of floor-to-ceiling retractable glass panels, allowing for spectacular views of the San Fernando Valley.
    A minimalist firebox in the formal living area makes it cosy, while an enormous sky light and floating, built-in buffet bar makes the dining area complete a delight.
    And it appears Bruno is something of a connoisseur, as the room also has a special refrigerator to keep his wines at the perfect temperature.
    The compact, but expensively-equipped center island kitchen has a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, though they look out on the front motor court, a double-wide fridge-freezer, stacked double ovens, and a two-seat snack counter.
    There is also room if the singer decides to indulge himself by building a car collection, as a walled and double-gated motor court at the front easily parks three or four cars, while a three car garage and driveway around the corner offers off-street parking for up to six more.

    The service areas, tucked into a corner between the kitchen and the direct-entry garage, include a guest bedroom with private attached bathroom, a separate office, and a laundry facility with convenient slop sink.
    As a young star, parties will be an important part of his life, and it has a well equipped backyard with deep, shaded overhangs, an outdoor bar and a dark-bottom swimming pool surrounded by decking.
    There is also a modest lawn that runs from the outdoor living areas around the side of the house to a gravel patio.
    Privacy will have also been a concern, and it is equipped with a state-of-the-art security system with eight perimeter cameras.

    According to Real Estalker property records for the sleek and low-slung house show it was purchased for $3,254,000
    Intriguingly the property was purchased by the sellers only a year ago in May 2011 for $1,235,000, meaning they made a mammoth $2,019,000 profit, not including costs such as taxes, renovation expenses and real estate fees.
    If the sellers are able to do that with regularity they will end up being Billionaires before Bruno.

    The only think I can find salvageable here is the view, and I've seen way better.

    I love it. Maybe not the decor, but the space is great and the location is awesome.
