Sotheby’s International Realty sells home to pop star Natasha Bedingfield
Pop star Natasha Bedingfield, who launched her own British invasion of the U.S. airwaves with such often-played hits as “Unwritten,” has purchased a home in the Los Feliz area for $2.3 million.
The London-born singer-songwriter bought a 4,792-square-foot contemporary with four bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, a media room, gym and office in three stories.
The recently renovated house, built in 1953, has city light and mountain views. There is a swimming pool and a detached three-car garage with a guesthouse above.
Bedingfield, 27, earned a Grammy nomination for best female pop vocal performance in 2007 for the title song on her debut album, “Unwritten.” She released “Pocketful of Sunshine” in 2008 and tweets that she has been back in London for part of the summer working on her third album.
The face of Gap advertisements proved herself a savvy home shopper. The price of the house she acquired had been dropped $2 million since coming on the market in January 2008 at $4,495,000.
The husky-voiced singer appeared this year on “America’s Got Talent” and “Dancing With the Stars,” among other shows. She performed songs for 2009 movies including “Bride Wars” and ” Confessions of a Shopaholic.”
Richard Stanley of Coldwell Banker, Los Feliz, had the listing. Bedingfield was represented by Aaron Montelongo of Sotheby’s International Realty’s Sunset office.
