Marshmello is an electronic music producer and DJ who first gained international recognition in 2015 when he began uploading his remixes online. He predominantly collaborates with solo artists when creating his singles, many of which have achieved multi-platinum status in several countries. The DJ and music producer is known for wearing a white mask that resembles a marshmallow when he performs, and this helped the artist to maintain a secret identity for several years. However, it was revealed in 2017 that the artist who calls himself Marshmello is Chris Comstock. In 2019, Marshmello became the second-highest-paid DJ in the world when he earned $40 million in just one year. By April 2020, Forbes listed Marshmello’s net worth as $56 million. Like many celebrities, one of the ways that Marshmello has chosen to spend his money is on a stunning home in an exclusive area. However, his purchase of a $10.8 million mansion in Mulholland Estates, Los Angeles, was kept under wraps.
An Overview of Marshmello’s Real Estate Purchase
Back in 2018, Marshmello bought his Los Angeles starter home for $3.6 million. The contemporary house was in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood. However, it was not long before the DJ decided he wanted something bigger and better. Last year, it was reported that a house in Mulholland Estates, Los Angeles, had sold for $10.8 million. At the time, the buyer of the property was unknown, but it has now been revealed that Marshmello was the mystery buyer. Mulholland Estates is a guard-gated community that sits in the mountains above Sherman Oaks. The community is already home to multiple celebrities. Some of these include Kendall Jenner, Christina Aguilera, Paris Hilton, and Vanna White. Marshmello’s new home was built in 1992, and it sits on a plot of 0.68-acres. It was designed by famous architect Richard Landry, while the stunning and opulent interior of the property was designed by Jeff Lewis. Internally, the mansion measures 7,818-square-feet, and it boasts five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
Inside His Mulholland Estates Mansion
A glass front door leads into an open-plan, double-height foyer with checkered tiles on the floor, white walls and ceilings, and pillars. The foyer opens out to the main living room on one side and to the formal dining room on the other. Beyond the foyer, there is a hallway with a curved staircase leading to the mansion’s upper level and a further staircase leading to the basement level. The dining room has large windows, an eight-seater dining suite, and double chandeliers hanging above the dining table. In the living room, there is a fireplace that gives the room a cozy feeling, despite being spacious. Beyond the dining room, there is an impressive eat-in kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. There is light gray cabinetry, some of which have glass-fronted doors, and both the countertops and the backsplash are gray marble.
While many luxury homes have a large kitchen island, this mansion goes one step better as there are two islands sitting in the center of the room. One of the islands offers additional storage, extra workspace, and a sink. The other island has an oversized countertop to create an informal dining area. Additional living space is available in the relaxed family room, which has double French doors that lead out to the patio in the backyard, dual-aspect windows, and a fireplace. There is also an informal dining area set into the space next to a bay window, which is currently set up to seat eight. The downstairs also features a library, which offers the alternative use as a home office. One wall has fitted shelving and cabinetry on either side of a large window, while another wall has a fireplace flanked by more windows. The office/ library is spacious enough to accommodate both a desk area and a sitting area with armchairs.
Upstairs, there are three guest bedrooms with ensuites, plus the master suite. The master suite has a large bedroom, a sitting area, and a kitchenette. Therefore, there is barely any need for Marshmello to leave his master suite if he just wants to spend the day chilling out. There is also a magnificent spa-style bathroom that boasts a metallic, free-standing bathtub sitting in front of a large window. Furthermore, the master suite benefits from dual closets with plenty of storage for clothes, shoes, and accessories. From the bedroom, there are double French doors opening onto a large private balcony, which is set up with outdoor furniture for relaxing. From the balcony, there are views across the San Fernando Valley and the surrounding area. Marshmello’s new home also has a finished basement level, which is set up with areas for leisure and entertainment. It features a wet bar and an entertainment lounge.
The Grounds of Marshmello’s Estate
Marshmello’s home is unusual in that the property is not gated. However, it is within a guard-gated community with round-the-clock security, says Dirt.com. To the property’s front, there are paved parking areas and lawns, while the sides of the mansion are lined by mature trees. There is also a three-car integrated garage. Although the rear garden is steep due to its hilltop position, its design makes the most has been made of the outdoor space. A large patio runs across the back of the house, including a covered loggia with a stone-paved floor. There are further terraced areas for outdoor dining and entertainment amongst the patches of lawn. Like most luxury properties in Los Angeles, the highlight of the backyard is a kidney-shaped outdoor swimming pool with a spa. The pool looks particularly impressive at night when it is illuminated. From both the pool and the terraces, there are gorgeous views across the San Fernando Valley. Further outdoor space is available on the various balconies around the house, including the master suite’s private balcony.
