Jared Leto Buys LA Home With Very Unusual History
Jared Leto has a lot on his plate these days besides awards shows and fancy hairdos. The “Dallas Buyers Club” Oscar winner, who hit the red carpet for the Golden Globes on Sunday evening, just spent $ 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 living space, eight bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, as reported by Variety. According to photos, the palatial spread also has several art galleries, a spiral staircase, and a lagoon-like pool.
Curbed reported in 2012 that the compound was set to be leased as an addiction treatment center. 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.) 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.
