Welcome to the house that Bieber built.
Scooter Braun, the young and massively successful impresario credited with discovering Justin Bieber on YouTube and introducing the world to “Bieber Fever,” is living large in an incredible Los Angeles estate. The home recently came to our attention via numerous glowing articles about Braun and his impressive journey to become one of the most successful talent managers of the current era. In May of this year, Forbes called Braun “Bieber’s Business Brain” and described how he hustles and makes musical magic happen from his Hollywood Hills estate. In an in-depth feature in the incomparable “The New Yorker” magazine, Braun was dubbed “The Mogul Who Made Just Bieber” and it was noted “the home is the center of operations for Braun’s blossoming mini-moguldom.”
The property that each of these reports are referring to is a large, modern 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom bachelor pad with walls of windows overlooking Los Angeles that Braun bought late last summer for $5.7 million from Kevin Lee Washington, an under-the-radar inventor.
As “The New Yorker” describes, “to get to the front door, you walk on slate stepping stones through a koi pond.” As you can see in the listing photos from 2011, the estate is big and bold. Braun also told the reporter that he wasn’t going to stop there: he’s buying the house next door to tear it down and put in a basketball court. That’s quite the compound — and the perfect location to launch and manage the careers of music’s current and upcoming megastars!
Before Braun bought the home, it was marketed as an “exciting architectural with enormous scale.” As any home must be in Los Angeles, Braun’s pad is perfect for indoor/outdoor living and grand entertaining. Naturally light and bright, the house is both stylish and sophisticated. It boasts a 22 foot entryway, great art walls and endless glass that showcases the massive views across Los Angeles. Just minutes up Doheny, Braun’s pad possesses a rare flat backyard and is punctuated by an infinity pool & spa, outdoor shower, cabana with plasma TV and fire pit, kitchen and BBQ.
Now that’s something to sing about.
