Celebrity Real Estate Roundup: Twilight Edition
With the recent release of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part I, people everywhere are looking to capitalize on the mega-success of the movie franchise. With this week’s edition of Celebrity Real Estate Roundup, I guess I can add myself to that list.
This week’s property comes courtesy of Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (or Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, if you’re not good with real names). The movie couple, who also happen to be a real-life couple as well, rented the five-bedroom, five-bathroom Bel Air pad over the summer, and paid a handsome $22,500 per month in rent. The modern house is very well secluded at the end of a gated, dead-end street and most likely provided a lot of much-needed privacy for the young couple to enjoy activities like avoiding sunlight, brooding and collecting royalty checks.
The home, with its slanted roof and romantic outdoor patio overlooking the Stone Canyon Reservoir, originally sold for $2.95 million back in 2001. However, now that the house has been graced with the presence of a teenage vampire and his mortal companion, the asking price has been bumped up to $6 million, more than double its original price.
Looks like you can add another name to the list of people capitalizing on the success of the Twilight franchise.
