Diane d’Snitch sent word via covert digital communiqué that Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus has his sleek mid-century modern on a quiet cul-de-sac in the ultra trendy and spectacularly spendy Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills available outside the Multiple Listing Service, with a rockstar-sized asking price of $10 million. Hoppus purchased the pristinely maintained and stylishly appointed Hal Levitt-designed residence in 2004 for $3.65 million, and several years ago, while he and his wife, Skye, were living in London, offered the swanky spread as a fully furnished luxury lease with an asking price of $15,000 per month.
Digital marketing materials show the low-slung house, completely obscured from the street behind a dense wall of tropical foliage and outfitted with a camera- equipped security system, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms in not quite 3,400 square feet. Hardwoods run throughout the single-level residence, which features a living room with a fireplace and a dramatic curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s also a formal dining room, den, and an essentially circular, almost all-white kitchen with stainless-steel appliances. The curvaceous rear of the residence is lined with glass sliders that lead out to a keyhole-shaped swimming pool surrounded by extensive terraces for lounging and entertaining.
Hoppus, fresh off the release of “California,” his band’s seventh studio album and second No. 1 album on The Billboard 200, additionally owns an unassuming tract home that backs up to a San Diego golf course bought in 1998 for $315,000.
