Jason Lee, the former pro skateboarder-turned-actor, appears to be the purchaser of a 2,205-square-foot home in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles. Though it cannot be confirmed, sources say that Lee, who starred in the movie adaptation of the Dave Barry book “Big Trouble,” has purchased the home, which was previously owned by famed R&B guitarist Robert Cray.
The home, built in 1948, features three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and “a secret garden with a spa.” A large driveway fits up to eight cars, while breathtaking views of the Griffith Observatory prove once again that location is key in real estate sales.
Cray was able to sell the home for $100,000 above the asking price of $3.25 million, another sign that the luxury housing market is failing to feel the negative effects of the current housing market.
Cozy though it may be, Lee will have plenty of space in his new home to accommodate fiancée Beth Riesgraf and 4-year-old son Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee.
