Crooner Smokey Robinson has been quite the real-estate wheeler and dealer over the last year, listing his Las Vegas-area house for $1.9 million, trying to sell his mansion in southern California for $10 million, and taking ownership of a vacant southern California tract that he bought in the fall of 2005—but whose sale wasn’t recorded until last May—for $1.5 million.
Most recently, Robinson has listed his house at 1357 Opal Valley Street in Henderson, Nev., near Las Vegas, for $1.9 million. Built in 2001, the three-bedroom house is in the gated Seven Hills golf club community in Henderson. Measuring 4,420 square feet, the nine-room, one-story stucco house has three baths, a pool and spa, and a three-car garage, according to public records. Robinson bought the house in 2003 for $1.2 million. Check out a tour of Robinson’s Nevada house here and a listing sheet for the house here.
In addition, Robinson has reduced the asking price for his 9,075-square-foot mansion in Chatsworth, Calif., northwest of Los Angeles, from $10.5 million to just under $10 million. Robinson bought the seven-bedroom mansion, on 2.55 acres at 22636 Zaltana Street in Chatsworth, in 2002 for $2.7 million, according to public records. Built in 1991, the three-story mansion has been recently remodeled and has a 35-millimeter soundproof theater, a master bedroom with a sauna, a wine cellar, six and a half baths, and a domed entry with a sweeping staircase, according listing information. Take a look at the mansion’s listing sheet here.
Robinson already has bought additional land nearby in Chatsworth, although it’s unclear if that land, at 22682 La Quilla Drive, was purchased as an investment or for use as a future homesite for Robinson. He paid $1.5 million for that land back in late 2005.
