A tennis champ was the buyer of Nick Jonas’ latter-day modern in Beverly Hills. The home sold in August of this year, for $6.91 million, and it was Naomi Osaka who carried the day, according to Variety. Jonas picked it up a little over a year earlier, for $6.5 million.
The 3,150 square-footer’s exterior features strong modern lines. From the street, it looks like a recent contemporary-meets-modern build. In back, however, the home’s concrete, timber and glass blossoms into an L-shaped design that shelters a pool, wood deck, and patio.
Within, the home’s most compelling lifestyle solution is its common area, which opens broadly to a transition room. The five bedrooms and five baths include a master suite that also features a hide-away glass wall that opens to reveal the outdoor living area.
The home’s layout includes a nifty addition, as well: an attached guest space with a cantilevered room and a kitchenette. Currently, the living room of this section of the house is in use as a studio.
Osaka, 21, has two Grand Slam singles titles to her name: the Australian Open and the U.S. Open. She will reportedly be giving up her U.S. citizenship to represent Japan in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics; she was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and Haitian father and was raised in America from age 3.
