Katy Perry, Russell Brand Buy Sunset Strip-Area Compound For $6.5M

Katy Perry, Russell Brand Buy Sunset Strip-Area Compound For $6.5M

July 23, 2011

Singer Katy Perry and comic actor Russell Brand have bought a Sunset Strip-area compound from former National Lampoon Chief Executive Daniel Laikin for $6.5 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

Perry and Brand are selling their Los Feliz compound, a $3,395,000 listing that was on the market in May for just nine days before entering escrow.

The gated Mediterranean-style house they acquired was built in 1925 and sits on nearly 3 acres with a guesthouse and swimming pool. It features a baronial stone foyer with sweeping staircase, stained-glass windows and a carved fireplace mantel in the living room, a pub, a study and a media room. Including a four-room master suite, two guest suites and staff quarters, the house has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Perry, 26, is on a nine-month California Dreams tour, which follows her 2010 album, “Teenage Dream.” Brand, 36, starred in this year’s remake of “Arthur” and is filming “Rock of Ages,” which is to be released next year. The couple, who own another residence in New York, were married in October.

Laikin, a former home builder, was found guilty last year in federal court of manipulating the stock price of the comedy film company. He had bought the property in 2004 for $4.5 million. The compound came on the market in November at $7,995,000.

Barry Sloane of Sotheby’s International Realty, Beverly Hills, had the listing, and Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties, Beverly Hills, represented the buyers, according to the MLS.
