Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, are chasing history in Pacific Palisades, listing their coveted connection for $57.5 million.
When they get their price, it will be one of the most expensive sales the coastal community has seen. The current crown belongs to mega-mansion developer Ardie Tavangarian, who sold a specialty home for $83 million last year.
Levine and Prinsloo are the latest in a long line of celebrities to own the property, which encompasses more than 3 acres of private, park-like grounds. They bought it from Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner for $31.95 million in 2018, and before that it was owned by hit actor Gregory Peck and Oscar winner Brian Grazer.
While the price is $25 million more than what Levine and Prinsloo paid for it, the increase reflects a more competitive market and also a significant makeover that the couple oversaw during their stay. They’re no strangers to flipping houses, having bought a $33 million mansion in Beverly Hills in 2018 and turned it over to Ellen DeGeneres a year later for $45 million.
If the Palisades estate looks familiar, that’s because it was featured in Architectural Digest’s Open Door series. During the 10-minute feature, the pair showcased the art-filled property, which centers on a 9,000-square-foot ranch-style home designed by Midcentury architect Cliff May.
