The former Los Angeles mansion of artist and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs was recently updated and is on the market for $ 14.5 million. Combs, known professionally as Puff Daddy, is an American rapper, songwriter, record manager, record producer and entrepreneur.
Combs lived in the newly remodeled home from 2008 to 2013. Located in the Beverly Crest neighborhood, where the crème de la crème of Los Angeles society lives in secluded mansions, the home has five bedrooms and six bathrooms on three floors. The well-equipped kitchen is on the middle level, which is unusual, but handy for entertaining and late-night snacking.
Almost everything in the old bachelor apartment of Combs relates in one way or another to the spectacular views from the house on every level. Visitors enter from the top floor into a grand foyer with a large skylight, dramatic chandelier, museum-quality finishes, and picture-postcard views of Los Angeles from the Pacific Ocean to downtown.
On the top floor is also the master suite with a living room, fireplace, balcony and a white marble bathroom with double sinks, showers, bathtub and more panoramic views. In addition to the kitchen, the middle floor includes the dining area and a separate living area with a bar and a desk. The first level has three more bedrooms and the living room with a fireplace and glass doors that open onto the large backyard with an infinity pool, sunken spa and even more views.
Beverly Crest, home to the prestigious 90210 code, is home to celebrities, old people and the nouveau riche. Situated next to Beverly Hills between Bel Air and the Hollywood Hills, the Hills and Canyons of Beverly Crest provide an incredible backdrop for homes such as the Hyatt family’s 49,300-square-foot home atop a hill, with current values reaching the stratosphere of $ 100 million. Famous residents, past and present, include Rock Hudson, Mark Wahlburg, Denzell Washington, and Sylvester Stallone.
Born and raised in New York City, Combs entered the music world as an artistic director working with artists such as Usher and Mary J. Blige, and in 1993 founded his own record label, Bad boy entertainment. He then started producing his own music and by the late 1990s was one of the biggest stars in the world, on his way to multiple Grammy, MTV and BET awards. His song “I’ll Be Missing You” was the first rap song to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Combs also found the time to launch his successful clothing line. Jean-Jean.
He lived in the house from 2008 to 2013, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals. During this time he starred in the TV movie A Grapes in the sun, won BET awards for Diddy – Dirty Money and Hello Hello, won multiple MTV awards, developed multiple clothing lines, opened two restaurants and a successful liquor business.
