Chris Brown lists LA home

Chris Brown is selling his Los Angeles home, listing it for $1.92 million

R & B artist Chris Brown’s neighbors were unlikely sad to see the for-sale sign pop up on Brown’s modern home. Although Brown just bought the home in October 2011, he rankled nearby homeowners, who asserted that Brown held wild parties, drove too fast, and that his graffiti art on the side of the house was scaring neighborhood children.

“It’s like devils on the wall — big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we’re used to,” the president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association told the L.A. Times.

The house no longer has the graffiti — Brown received a citation from the city forcing its removal — and there’s no sign of the wild antics allegedly held in the modern home.

However, the house was designed for entertaining, with walls of glass, high ceilings and an elevator that leads to a salt water pool wired for a custom colored LED light show. Brown paid $1.555 million for the home in 2011; the house is listed for $1.92 million.

Brown also has another residence on the market, a condo in West Hollywood that garnered the same sort of negative attention as his house. Apparently in the condo building, Brown was accused of parking in handicap spots, blaring music at all hours and racing dogs down the hallwaysThe condo is listed for $1.695 million; it was first listed for $1.895 million in May 2012.
