YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: So the celebrity real estate scuttlebutt goes, white-hot Hollywoodite Seth Rogen has quietly a gated estate tucked high in to the Nichols Canyon area of the Hollywood Hills for somewhere in the neighborhood of $8 million.
As best as we can figure from a careful parse of property records, the gated estate encompasses three parcels that total 7.15 acres set into a heavily treed canyon just below a modestly scaled hacienda style house recently acquired by Twilight superstar Rob Pattinson.
The property, discreetly set off a tight curve of a winding cul-de-sac, was not listed on the open market but listing details Your Mama managed to tease up out of the internets from the fall of 2012 when the property was put out for least at $11,750 per month — it rented in early 2013 at $10,500 per month as per digital resources — show the three bedroom and three bathroom wood-shingled main house has 3,493 square feet with flagstone floors and a “gourmet kitchen.” The property also includes a separate guesthouse, a swimming pool and spa set into a flagstone terrace below the main house, a lighted paddle tennis court down near driveway gates and, tucked deep in to the sylvan canyon spread, two streams and a 100-foot waterfall.
Our research suggests Mister Rogen, now in his middle 30s, continues to own the 2,853-square-foot Spanish casa in West Hollywood he picked up in the fall of 2006 for $1.65 million.
“The Interview,” the Canadian-born comedian’s film with James Franco, is at the heart of the Sony hacking scandal that has set showbiz tongues wagging around the world. After weeks of unwelcomed publicity and a barrage of bizarre threats lobbed by the (alleged) hackers the bigwigs at Sony canceled the scheduled December 25th theatrical release of the the comedy about he assassination of autocratic (and way kooky) North Korean president Kim Jong-un. Mister Rogen got his Tinseltown break on the cult fave t.v. show “Freaks and Geeks” and went on to star in a series of silly but seriously successful silver screen comedies (“Knocked Up,” “Superbad,” “Pineapple Express”). Next year he’ll star as computer nerd/tech tycoon Steve Wozniak in the much chattered about Steve Jobs biopic.
