Inside celebrity homes: Harry Styles and Leonardo DiCaprio

‘Dunkirk’ actor lists his contemporary-style home in Hollywood Hills West for sale at $8.495 million

SETTING SIGHTS ON A NEW DIRECTION

Harry Styles, singer-songwriter of One Direction fame, has listed his contemporary-style home in Hollywood Hills West for sale at $8.495 million (Dh31 million).

Tucked behind a motorised gate on a quarter-acre lot, the multilevel home boasts an open floor plan and pocketing walls of glass that capitalise on Southern California’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Views from the home, set above the Sunset Strip, extend from the downtown cityscape to the ocean.

The 4,100 square feet of subdued living space includes a centre-island kitchen, a screening room and a gym. The four bedrooms and six bathrooms include a top-floor master suite that opens to a private balcony.

Tall bamboo hedges form a natural screen around the swimming pool and spa. Expansive decking extends outward to create additional space as well as a covered lounge area below.

Styles bought the house a year ago for $6.87 million, property records show.

Earlier this month, the 23-year-old Styles released the self-titled album Harry Styles, his first as a solo artist. He is set to make his acting debut later this year in the Christopher Nolan-directed war film Dunkir.

LANDLORD IS AMONG HIS LATEST ROLES

Finding no takers for his Malibu home yet, Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio has leased the oceanfront property on Carbon Beach for $22,000 a month.

The beach residence, dating to the 1950s and since remodeled, had been up for sale since last year for as much as $10.95 million. It last changed hands in 1998 for $1.6 million, public records show.

Obscured from the street by fences and gates, the house is entered through a gated courtyard and a screened sun porch. The 1,765 square feet of living space includes a living room with a fireplace, a dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. A galley-style kitchen has been updated with gray herringbone tile and color-coordinated cabinetry.

Beach-facing decking extends the living space outdoors, where amenities include a hot tub. A wooden staircase leads from the patio area to the beachfront.

DiCaprio, 42, won an Academy Award two years ago for his leading role in The Revenant (2015). His other credits that garnered Oscar nominations include What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), The Aviator (2004), Blood Diamond (2005) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
