Tool drummer Danny Carey has purchased a home from the Mighty Duck man himself, Emilio Estevez. Carey purchased Emilio’s landlocked “micro-vineyard” in Malibu’s Point Dume neighborhood for $6,350,000. Yolanda’s Little Black Book writes:
The Estevez-cum-Carey Point Dume spread lies on a flat acre of land with little vineyards in both the front and backyards and was originally acquired by Mr. Estevez for $2,200,000 just a few months after the turn of the century.
Poor Mr. Estevez once optimistically hoped someone would pay him $9,995,000 for the privilege of owning the house. After several long years and myriad price chops, however, he finally settled on the much lower number offered by Mr. Carey.
Tax records indicate the single-story house is not particularly big — just 3,700-square-feet or so — but it was custom-built in 2008 by Mr. Estevez so it now has a flashy Hollywood pedigree.
The article also states:
Some of Mr. Carey’s nearest new neighbors in Malibu are rocker Matt Bellamy, producer Ryan Kavanaugh and Emilio Estevez’s daddy Martin Sheen, who are all within egg-throwing distance of his property. If that ain’t Hollywood enough for ya, then just around this or that corner of down this or that Point Dume street are the homes of just about every famous person still living: Julia Roberts, Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand, Gerard Butler, Owen Wilson, Sean Penn, Chris Martin, Don Rickles, Chad Smith, Matthew McConaughey, and many, many more.
For nearly 20 years, Mr. Carey has primarily resided in LA’s Bronson Canyon neighborhood. Tucked in between the larger and more well-known communities of Beachwood Canyon and Los Feliz, the area is nonetheless home to a plethora of high-profile folks. Some of Mr. Carey’s nearest neighbors out in Bronson Canyon include Craig Ferguson, Stephanie Savage, Moby, Flea, a Saudi royal, and that bizarrely and bitterly divorcing Brangelina pair.
The first property Mr. Carey acquired in Bronson Canyon was the one above on the right, the tall mock-Med looking thing. Records indicate he paid a paltry $695,000 back in 1998 for the house, with its relatively modest 2,423 square feet and 4 bedrooms and 2 baths.
Exactly one decade later, in April 2008, Mr. Carey paid a much more celebrity-style $2,200,000 for the house immediately next door. No big shock, really. You know what Yolanda says about that, right? No matter who the person is — be they famous or not, sexy or not, old or young — rich people love buying their neighbors’ houses and creating compounds.
