Former “Dancing With the Stars” regular Mark Ballas has made a couple of moves away from the dance floor, selling one home on Los Angeles’ Westside and buying another in the Laurel Canyon area.
On the sale side, Ballas parted with a Mediterranean-style home in the Beverly Crest area for $3.125 million in a deal completed off-market. He bought the property two years ago for $2.525 million, records show.
The roughly 4,900-square-foot home, built in the 1970s and since renovated, had been listed for as much as $4 million last year. It includes two kitchens, two family rooms, four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
A swimming pool and spa highlight grounds of more than a third of an acre.
The house he bought is surrounded by mature trees. Vibrant stone siding and a glass-paneled staircase give the updated 1950s home a contemporary vibe.
Some 2,000 square feet of white-walled living space include living and dining rooms, an updated kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Picture windows bring in views of the grounds, and the master suite has a sliding glass door that opens to a patio.
Ballas bought the home for $1.5 million, or $101,000 over the asking price, records show.
Ballas, 30, first appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2007 and has twice won the dancing competition series. He left the show a year ago to join the Broadway cast of “Jersey Boys.”
