Singer Josh Groban lists his four-bedroom house in Malibu, CA for $6.1M

Singer Josh Groban has listed his four-bedroom, Tuscan villa-style house in Malibu, Calif. for $6,100,000.

We can't at all call this an exclusive, particularly when the listing of the house has been written about on several Josh Groban fan boards. And, it's really not all *that* surprising of a listing, given his recent interest in buying a place in New York (which we'll get to in a sec), although offsetting that of course is the fact that he has so much family in L.A.

Records show that Groban's DJT Trust paid $4,125,000 to buy the house in the summer of 2005. Built in 1976, the 3,294-square-foot house sits on 1.8 acres on Point Dume. Features in the house include four and a half baths, and beautiful stone floors with inlaid stone tiles, and a wood-paneled media room (with a Homer Simpson print on the wall!), according to public records, listing information and past press accounts. Outdoor features include a separate one-bedroom guest house with a recording studio, a pool and spa with a waterfall, a lighted tennis court, prviate patios and lawn areas, and a poolside cooking and entertainment area with seating around a stone fireplace, according to listing information. The property also has private beach rights.

Groban once told InStyle.com that "When I first saw this place, my reaction was, 'It's like being on an instant vacation -- I'll take it!" He also told InStyle.com that "I bought this house with the idea that I'd grow into it."

Groban continues to own his 1,845-square-foot condo unit in the Oakhurst condo building in Beverly Hills, which he purchased for $900,000 in 2003, according to public records.

So has Josh purchased anything in New York City yet? We have no idea (although we're open to anything readers may know). Back in December 2008, he was reported by our old friend Braden Keil of the New York Post to have been spotted checking out a two-bedroom, duplex penthouse in the building at 155 Perry Street in Manhattan -- a unit that at that time was on the market for $3.85 million. We have no idea if Groban ever pulled the trigger or not.

<a href="http://www.howtosongwrite.org" rel="nofollow">SongWrite</a> You know a great song when you hear one, so why can it seem so hard to write one? How is it that some songwriters can crank out classic hit after hit, while others struggle to write one single decent song?

What's wrong with having a big house if you can afford it? Just because you live by yourself or with one other person instead of six doesn't mean you should be in a smaller place; that doesn't make any sense. People, by nature, need space.

"how do you modivate a nasty room mate to help clean the house?" It would probably help if you learned how to spell motivate 1st.. No wonder they aren't helping when they don't have a clue what your talking about!

Actually it wasn't just two people. Nikki had three kids from a previous marriage who visited often and she had her son who lived with her, plus their had a child together. So they needed more than enough room.

Plus "they" had a child together. Forgive my spelling error

This is an outdated article. Diana took her estate off the market again in 2009-2010. While I love the fantasy of my diva living in her ginormous palace, the truth of the matter is all of her children are grown and have left Connecticut. Rhonda still lives in Harlem/Manhattan/New York City with her husband and son. But Tracee Joy, Chudney Lane and Even Olav all live in California (Hollywood Hills/Santa Monica). Diana also owns a smaller home in Los Angeles as well. And she owns a condo in the Sherry Netherlands in Manhattan. So as much as I enjoy my fantasy of the queen and her palace......it is not something she should live in alone. It causes one to isolate.
