A-Listers Joe Jonas and wife, Sophie Turner, have sold their Encino, California estate, which they turned into one of Southern California’s most glamorous contemporary homes.
Taking two years and the magic of celebrity-designer Jae Omar, the couple purchased the home in 2019 for US$14.1 million and listed it at US$16.75 million in June. It recently sold for US$15.2 million.
Located in the Royal Oaks enclave of Encino in Los Angeles, the 15,000-square-foot home has 10 bedrooms and 14 baths.
Omar applied his skills to highlight the lushness of the landscape, including an ancient oak tree in the centre of the property.
Other design features added include a lap pool with spa, aged-wood design features, various imported stone accents and a custom wine cellar.
Open and airy with high ceilings and outdoor views, all rooms are large and can host large get-togethers. Royal Oaks is one of the favourite celebrity neighbourhoods in LA.
The couple already has a new home in Miami’s Bay Point neighbourhood, recently purchasing the waterfront property with three bedrooms and 10,416 square feet for US$11 million.
The pair will join other big name celebrities, including Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, Joshua Kushner and Karlie Kloss, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who have also moved or are soon moving to the Sunshine State.
Jonas is one of three brothers who make up the pop-rock-boy band Jonas Brothers.
English actress Turner gained celebrity status from her role as Sansa Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Carl Gambino of Compass represented the sellers of the Encino home, while Ethan Peskowitz and Fred Bernstein of Westside Estate Agency represented the buyers.
