LEONARDO DICAPRIO BOUGHT MOBY’S LOS ANGELES MANSION FOR $4.9 MILLION

The actor reportedly used a trust to pay for the singer/songwriter’s 1920s home in Los Feliz.

Singer/songwriter Moby put his Los Angeles mansion on the market in February, and within just a few weeks the Los Feliz estate he had renovated extensively found a buyer: Leonardo DiCaprio.

Mansion Global reports that a “trust belonging to DiCaprio closed on the home in March.” DiCaprio posted a picture of himself hanging out with Moby and Dr. Jane Goodall on Instagram at Goodall’s fundraising event in April, shortly after the sale.

The actor has a history of investing in and flipping real estate, and it does not appear that he plans to move into the 4,644-square-foot home; instead, the Los Angeles Times reports, he “bought the English Traditional home through a trust for a family member, according to sources not authorized to comment on the deal.” Whoever ends up living in the Los Feliz home will have its former owner as a neighbor— Moby bought the house next door in 2014.

Gwen Banta & Patrick Martin of Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing, which was marketed as “Moby’s Los Feliz Marketplace.” Their firm’s press office declined to confirm DiCaprio as the buyer.

Moby bought the 18-room home for $3.4 million in 2016 and gave it a contemporary makeover, complete with white marble countertops and bathrooms, all-white rooms, and modern furniture.

A pool and outdoor dining area are hidden behind thick hedges surrounding the property. The five-bedroom home also boasts a walk-in pantry, a steam room, and a room that doubles as a yoga room or study. Maybe DiCaprio will want to give yoga another go in the privacy of his own home this time?
