    The youngest Jonas Brother is making big moves!

    21-year-old Nick Jonas, 1/3 of the now-defunct musical group The Jonas Brothers, has just splashed out $3.2 million on a secluded spanish-style compound above the Sunset Strip, as first reported by The Real Estalker.

    Set behind large gates on a private cul-de-sac, Jonas’ new home has panoramic views from Downtown to the ocean. Set on a promontory, this authentic Villa has both old world charm and every modern amenity. Recently renovated to capture seamless indoor/outdoor living, all public rooms open to the pool and  grounds. A dramatic living room with fireplace and spacious dining room are ideal for entertaining. The master suite has high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace, and an adjacent master bath includes a steam shower and a large walk-in closet. Features of Jonas’ new estate include a gourmet kitchen, family room, and state-of-the-art security. An outdoor fireplace with seating and full guest house make this the perfect home for the youngest Jonas.

    Nick Jonas bought this home from Mike Myer’s ex-wife, Robin Ruzan, who had been trying to sell the home for two years.

    “The Jonas Brothers” crushed fans across the world with the news that they were disbanding after many years of making music together. They are each pursing individual projects, both personally and professionally. Nick Jonas had a small role on “Smash,” and also appeared this fall on “Hawaii Five-O.” When he’s not working, he’s spending time with his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. Brother Kevin Jonas is expecting his first child (a girl!) with wife Danielle, and the duo are also selling their New Jersey mansion for $2.2 million. Joe Jonas hasn’t announced any major plans for the future.

      Price

      $2,300,000

      Real estate super agent and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles star Josh Altman is smart, shrewd and savvy when it comes to real estate. He knows it’s all about price, location and having a vision.

      With that in mind, Altman himself just paid $2.3 million for an outdated and downright ugly home in a great cul-de-sac location above the Sunset Strip.

      The original home, pictured here, isn’t much to look at. Gated and down a long driveway, it has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,436 square feet on more than a half an acre, with those incredible Los Angeles views.

      Altman told Trulia Luxe Living that the place is a teardown and that in the coming months, he is planning to “knock it down and build a 7,500 square foot modern with sick views.” When completed, the new home will be valued around $9 million.

      Eugene Jeffries of Coldwell Banker represented the seller and naturally, Josh Altman represented himself in the transaction.

        Price

        $2,695,000

        Nicky Hilton, the younger sister of Paris Hilton and fellow heiress to the Hilton hotel fortune, just price-chopped her home in the Hollywood Hills by $255,000. Formerly listed for $2,950,000 in July of 2012, Hilton has had a hard time finding a buyer to take the Sunset Strip crib off her hands and just dropped the price to $2,695,000. Property records show that the younger Hilton bought the 2-story residence in June 2007 for $2,800,000. Her new asking price puts her well below the price she paid for the pad, making a loss a likely outcome for this home.

        Listing information calls the home an “elegant Traditional located in a prime Sunset Strip location.” From first glance, the unassuming home is actually oddly plain for a Hilton. Like older sister Paris, Nicky had faux-lebrity family friend Faye Resnick decorate parts of the home in her signature style that includes oodles of black, mirrors, and patent leather. Aside from the questionable decor and some cringe-worthy kitchen wallpaper, the Hilton home does have a great floor plan with spacious living room, formal dining room, eat-in kitchen with large island, four ovens, a roomy pantry, and built-in refrigerator. The dramatic master suite includes two huge closets and two bathrooms. All rooms lead to a rather small outdoor area with a pool, waterfall, and fireplace. Additionally, Hilton’s home has a family room/den, gym, and sauna. It’s a nice Los Angeles home, but it’s no penthouse at the Hilton
