Rock musician Joe Walsh has paid $4,500,000 for a three-bedroom, 2,308-square-foot house in the Beverly Hills, Calif. post office that once was owned by onetime Monkees frontman Mike Nesmith.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Walsh's purchase of the European-style home at in Beverly Hills. Records show that the 60-year-old former Eagles member and solo singer of "Lifes Been Good" and other hits purchased the house on December 10, with the deal being recorded on January 25.
On September 21, we exclusively wrote a post on the listing of the house, long before Walsh purchased it. Our hook was pointing out that the home, which was built in 1937, once had been owned by Nesmith. Records show that Nesmith sold the home in 1995 for $1,150,000 to the family who recently sold it to Walsh.
Features in the house include four and a half baths, a chef's kitchen, a media room, a library, two offices, an indoor/outdoor floor plan and a custom stone spa, according to listing information. Outside on the 3.86-acre property are terraced gardens, stonework, fountains, waterfalls, verandas, patios, gardens, walking paths and a large motor court, according to listing information.
The house had been listed for $5,450,000 and later was reduced to $4,995,000.

--A 2,437-square-foot house at in Los Angeles' Studio City neighborhood, which he has owned since 1991, according to public records;
--A 791-square-foot condominium at 2005 in Carlsbad, Calif. that he purchased in early 2006 for $450,000, according to public records.
