John Mayer and Adam Levine have a fair amount in common professionally. Both singer/guitarists were born in the late 70’s. Both began playing gigs at an early age and eventually rose to mainstream success in the early 2000’s on the back of smash-hit pop records. Both of them won Grammy Awards in 2005 (“Song of the Year” for Mayer, Best New Artist for Levine and his band, Maroon 5). Both have also used their pop music success to take their career trajectories new different directions, with Levine carving out a TV career as a longtime coach on NBC‘s The Voice and Mayer diving into the world of the Grateful Dead as the guitarist for Dead & Company. Plus, you know, there’s the fact that the two artists look, like, uncannily similar…
Now, you can add another item to the list of similarities between Adam Levine and John Mayer–their taste in real estate. According to a report in Variety last week, Levine’s 7,100-square-foot, $15.9M mansion in Beverly Hills, CA is currently in escrow, and sources say Mayer is the buyer.
As Architectural Digest explains, Adam Levine and his wife, Namibian Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, originally purchased the place in the fall of 2012 for $4.83 million, and it marks the latest in their series of real estate buy-and-sell interactions in recent years. AD also notes that the home was substantially renovated since Levine and Prinsloo purchased it, with help from acclaimed designer Mark Haddaway. Variety notes that Mayer hasn’t owned a home in the L.A. area in several years, instead choosing to spend most of his time at his secluded compound outside Livingston, Montana.
Below, you can take a look at some photos of the luxurious Beverly Hills home from a spread that ran in Architectural Digest when Levine first purchased the house back in 2012:
