The quirky home used to be a military compound and secret film studio.
Jared Leto’s got a lot on his plate these days besides award shows and fancy hairdos. The Dallas Buyers Club Oscar winner and man-bun enthusiast, who hit the red carpet for the Golden Globes on Sunday evening, just dropped a cool $5 million on a Laurel Canyon home that used to be a military compound and secret film studio. Would you expect anything less from the man formerly known as Jordan Catalano?
Previously known as Lookout Mountain Air Force Station, the compound is rumored to feature about 50,000 square feet of space, eight bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, as the Real Estalker initially reported. According to photos, the palatial spread also rocks several art galleries, a spiral staircase, and a long, lagoon-esque pool fit for the Playboy Mansion.
Curbed reported a few years ago that the space was set to be leased as an addiction treatment center. Unfortunately, it looks like Hollywood will have to high-tail it over to the Betty Ford Center instead, because we’re guessing Jared isn’t big on roommates.
Naturally, this was an off-market buy, befitting a celeb who doesn’t quite follow the mainstream. (Case in point: he wore a braid to the Globes last night.) He also owns a luxe spread in Cahuenga Pass, which he’s had since 2006. The Thirty Seconds to Mars musician/fanny pack enthusiast dropped $1.65 million for that five-bedroom, three-bathroom home.
