Delivering a blend of contemporary sound and theatrics, Adam Lambert’s style has propelled him from an American Idol superstar singer-songwriter into an international celebrity. The house he bought in 2009 that overlooks the Sunset Strip, the same year he appeared on American Idol, reflects his personality along with his penchant for drama. Now traveling the world almost full-time performing in tours and major guest appearances, the Grammy-nominated vocalist has recently put his West Hollywood Hills home on the market for $3.35 million.
Enjoying a view of Los Angeles city lights, the 3,799-square-foot house is surrounded by lush greenery, is very private and has a disappearing glass wall that opens to a large terrace that includes an outdoor living room, fire pit and contemporary free-form pool and spa with various depths for lounging, swimming or sharing a glass of wine in the spa with friends. The master suite has two balconies, a sitting room, a huge dressing room and marble bath with steam shower and soaking tub. Night lighting brings added drama to the pool deck and a party atmosphere. Built in 1947, the three-bedroom, four-bath house has undergone impressive updates over time. In addition to formal and family rooms, there is a chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances and large island, custom wine storage and a separate studio with private entrance.
Hollywood Hills has been a celebrity magnet for as long as the film industry has existed and Lambert chose his home location well. Neighbors include Leonardo DiCaprio, who bought two extra lots and built a huge basketball court, Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry and many of the up-and-coming stars.
Though Lambert hit the big time when he appeared on American Idol in 2009, his career began in 2001 as a cruise ship entertainer. From there he performed in musical theater in California and on a European tour of Hair. With his appearances on American Idol, he began generating international recognition and toured with Queen + Adam Lambert, from which he is taking a short break. In May, the group announced the expansion of The Rhapsody Tour to include seven stadium dates in Australia and three in New Zealand. In 2020, Japan and South Korea will be included. Between writing and recording, cutting albums, world tours and guest appearances filling in all the time spaces, it’s not surprising that he has no time to kick back in his Hollywood Hills home.
Singer-songwriter Adam Lambert, best known for his appearance on the talent series American Idol and his Grammy-nominated song, Whataya Want From Me, has just listed his West Hollywood Hills contemporary home for $3.35 million. Listing agents are Tomer Fridman and Jonathan Siegfried of Compass, Los Angeles.
