The former Los Angeles mansion of entertainer and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs has been recently updated and is on the market for $14.5 million. Combs, known professionally as Puff Daddy, is an American rapper, songwriter, record executive, record producer and entrepreneur.
Combs lived in the estate from 2008 to 2013. Located in the Beverly Crest neighborhood, where the crème de la crème of Los Angeles society live in secluded mansions, the home includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms on three floors. The well-equipped kitchen is on the middle floor, which is out of the ordinary, but convenient for entertaining and late-night munchies.
Almost everything about Combs’ former bachelor pad is connected in some way to the home’s dramatic views from every level. Visitors enter through the top floor into a grand foyer with a large skylight, dramatic chandelier, museum-quality finishes and postcard views of Los Angeles from the Pacific Ocean to downtown.
Also on the top floor is the primary suite with a lounge, fireplace, balcony and a white-marble bath with dual vanities, showers, soaking tub and more sweeping views. In addition to the kitchen, the middle floor includes the dining area and a separate seating area with an entertainer’s bar and an office. The first level includes three more bedrooms and the living room with a fireplace and glass doors that open to the large backyard with an infinity pool, sunken spa and even more views.
Beverly Crest, known for its prestigious 90210 code, is home to celebrities, old money and the nouveau riche. Located next to Beverly Hills between Bel Air and the Hollywood Hills, Beverly Crest’s hills and canyons provide the amazing canvas for homes such as the Hyatt family’s 49,300 square-foot hilltop home, with current values reaching the $100 million stratosphere. Famous residents, past and present, include Rock Hudson, Mark Wahlburg, Denzell Washington and Sylvester Stallone.
Born and raised in New York, Combs entered the music business as a talent director working with entertainers such as Usher and Mary J. Blige and, in 1993, founded his own record company, Bad Boy Entertainment. He then started producing his own music and, by the late 1990s, was one of the world’s biggest stars, 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 time to start his successful clothing line Sean John.
He lived in the home from 2008 to 2013, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals. During that time he starred in the TV movie A Raisin in the Sun, won BET awards for Diddy – Dirty Money and Hello Good Morning, grabbed multiple MTV awards, developed several clothing lines, opened two restaurants and a successful liquor business.
