    Three years after buying in Los Feliz, Jack Osbourne has sold the home for a nice profit.

    The famous rock ‘n’ roll offspring purchased the home in December 2011, for $2,820,000, just 4 months before he became a first-time dad. He and wife Lisa lived here for a few short years before flipping the home back on the open market in April 2014 with an asking price of $2.998 million. Just a month later, the home has closed for $3,200,000, which is $202,000 OVER the asking price.

    Listing details show that Osbourne’s meticulously restored Spanish-style home at 2220 N Berendo Street is a private oasis in the heart of prime Los Feliz, with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathroom and 4,810 square feet.

    Painstakingly renovated by the previous owners in 2011, Jack’s just-sold home is a buyer’s dream: effortlessly functional for today’s modern lifestyle, all while retaining the charm and character of its authentic 1926 Spanish architecture.

    Passing through a sunny courtyard, you’ll find charming details from the 1920’s era, including splashing fountains, and craftsmanship that is second to none. A stunning kitchen lies at the center of the home, which opens to a family room with soaring ceilings and French doors leading out to the central courtyard and pool.

    A spacious master suite is situated upstairs, along with 2 additional bedrooms, each with their own private bath. A separate guest house features vaulted beam ceilings, a full kitchen and separate bedroom.

    Perfect for any high-profile buyer, the home is walled and gated to ensure the utmost privacy and security.

    Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland represented Osbourne in the sale and his H&H colleague Juliette Hohnen represented the buyer.

      Former American Idol judge and songwriter for all the chart toppers

      7,600 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sprawling grounds

      Price

      $6,300,000

      Hitmaker and former ‘American Idol’ judge Kara DioGuardi has just sold her stunning Studio City, CA, home for $6.3 million. DioGuardi first listed the home in September 2011 for $10 million, but the price was way too high.

      The 7,600-square-foot home with 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms was once listed as a $45,000 rental before officially hitting the market. With no takers, the home came off the market, then was relisted, and alas, finally sold for almost $4 million under asking. But don’t cry for Kara and her hubby, because it wasn’t a total wash. The duo purchased the home in 2007 for $3.5 million, spent three years renovating and decorating. So despite not getting the much-higher original asking price, they did come out ahead.

      The property has a luxurious master suite, gourmet kitchen, 20-foot-high river rock fireplace, a solarium, infinity pool, hot tub with jets, art studio, and sauna. The large yard has endless rolling hills and trees, fountains, ponds, terraces, and decks. Unlike lots of Hollywood’s most tucked-away homes, this property is within walking distance to some of LA’s finest restaurants and shops and minutes away from the freeway. When she first listed the home in 2011, DioGuardi told WSJ that she’s selling “because she wants to spend more time on the East Coast with family and has another home in the Hollywood Hills.”

      She recently appeared on Broadway as Roxie Hart in the revival of “Chicago.”
