Now we wouldn’t normally publish this type of story on here. We did post it in our members Forum a few days ago when it broke and we waited to see if the story would circulate on the web. Well it has so we feel we can post it here now without any fear of our personal invasion of Joaquin’s privacy.
Joaquin Phoenix Buys His Next Door Neighbour’s House for $1.39 Million
Eccentric actor Joaquin Phoenix has purchased his next door neighbour’s home on March 29, 2013 for $1,390,700, as indicated by property records. The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,511 square-foot home sits directly next to his existing property on top of the Hollywood Hills at Mulholland and Laurel Canyon, Phoenix’s new addition to his Los Angeles property portfolio is a “a very special charmer re-done to perfection.” The gated property features a living and dining room that open to peaceful, beautifully landscaped grassy yard with custom outdoor fireplace and stone waterfall. An eat-in kitchen with huge centre island and high-end appliances opens to a family room and additional large patio with canyon and city views. The Master suite has built-ins, a huge closet and re-done bath. Also included on the property is a bonus room with new bath and its own entrance, which would make a perfect office, gym or maids quarters. His existing home was purchased on November 7, 2006 for $4,835,000.
Phoenix’s long time property is rather ordinary by Hollywood standards, and can been seen extensively in scenes from Phoenix’s “mock-umentary,” “I’m Still Here,” in which he famously duped his peers and the public into thinking he was quitting acting to become a famous rapper.
No telling why he needs his next door neighbours digs too, but perhaps it’s because he’s following the trend among celebrities of creating a compound comprised of multiple high-priced properties.
