When Maroon 5 went on its very first tour, unknown singer Adam Levine didn't have enough money to hold on to his $800 per month bedroom in a shared home, he told Architectural Digest. After the two-year tour was over, Levine had the opposite problem: he returned to LA a bonafide rock star, but had nowhere to rest his head. "I suddenly had a career," said Levine to Architectural Digest, "but nowhere to live."
All that is a distant memory now for Levine, a globally renowned musician and a judge on NBC's "The Voice." He saw his pay double to $6 million for the show's third season, which premiered last September. Soon afterward, Levine invested some of that extra cash in a new Beverly Hills mansion, which makes for two multimillion-dollar properties under his name.
Celebuzz confirms that Levine closed the $4.8 million home purchase on Oct. 19. Known as the "Benedict House," the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home sits on a 3.5 acre lot and boasts a pool, tennis court, canyon views and a guest house.
The ranch-style home is located inside Wallingford Estates, a gated community made up of just 14 domiciles, notes Celebuzz. For Levine, it's good to be home.
