According to Variety, Jimmy Buffett has purchased a home in Beverly Hills, California for $8.25 million.

The two-time Grammy nominee and his longtime second missus, Jane, have long owned multi-million dollar homes and compounds in Palm Beach (FL), the Hamptons (NY), and St. Barts and, in April of this year, they quietly shelled out $8.25 million for a freshly and fastidiously rehabbed mid-century minded pied-a-terre in the Trousdale estates area of Beverly Hills.*

The seller, according to all the various property record data bases Your Mama consulted, was Hollywood theatrical marketing guru Matt Brubaker (of Trailer Park) who acquired the property from a non-celebrity couple in late December 2012 for $5.8 million. A look back over digital listings from the time Mister Brubaker bought the property show he gave the interiors a thorough cosmetic overhaul and flipped it back on the market in the early days of 2014 with an asking price of $8.399 million.

Originally built in 1963, the single-story home sits behinds a stainless steel gate that slides open to a teeny-weeny motor court and side-facing two-car attached garage with stainless steel doors. Another stainless steel gate opens from the motor court to a walled entry courtyard where a long and shallow water channel must be crossed in order to get to the all-glass front door. (It is just Your Mama who finds stainless steel driveway gates and garage doors to be an impressively expensive if depressingly passé, turn-of-the-21st-century architectural conceit?)
