It pays to be a DJ these days! Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, the dynamic electronic dance music duo known as The Chainsmokers, are finally cashing in on their booming careers. And you know what that means: million-dollar mansions. Both Alex and Drew recently invested in new homes, just a week apart. For Alex, it’s a $2.695 million, four-bedroom, three-bathroom spread in Hollywood Hills, CA’s celebrity-dense enclave of Laurel Canyon. Drew, meanwhile, chose a stylish piece of West Hollywood, CA, real estate: a five-bedroom, six-bathroom home for $3.295 million. It’s safe to say the “Closer” pair have spun their way to the A-list.
Measuring 3,579 square feet, Alex’s new modern home is a blend of industrial style and unique quirks. Tucked within old-growth forested grounds, the circa-1931 home features floor-to-ceiling Torrance Steel windows overlooking the canyons and mountains, complemented by lush gardens, multiple patios, and custom water features. The home’s lower level is ideal for relaxation, with a studio space, gym, and an outside lounge with its own Italian Earthstone pizza oven and multiple decks under a canopy of old oak trees. The master bedroom is a luxurious retreat with outstanding views and an 8-by-12-foot retractable tin-faced ceiling for gazing at the stars. A fireplace, walk-in closet, and spa bathroom are additional bonuses, making this the ultimate Laurel Canyon dream house.
The listing agents were Matt Fonda and Jeffrey McMahon of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
Meanwhile, Drew’s new West Hollywood, CA, home embraces the same contemporary architectural style, despite just having been built this year. The 4,758-square-foot home is the perfect spot to catch a view of the sun setting over the city of Los Angeles, CA. Hedged and gated for the utmost privacy, the smart home features an outstanding backyard with a sparkling swimming pool, a spa, and a water cascade. Constructed with luxe materials, it’s a picture-perfect taste of the Hollywood high life. And as we’ve seen with the other top celebrity DJs of Hollywood like Calvin Harris, Samantha Ronson, and Paul Oakenfold, high-end taste is practically a requirement for the job.
