Actor, singer and tween heartthrob Carlos Pena Jr. has bought a Mediterranean-style home in the San Fernando Valley for close to its $1.5-million asking price.
The 6,000-square-foot villa is set back from the road on a gated lot. It has a paver-stone courtyard with a fountain. The custom front door, with leaded and beveled glass and side lights, opens to a two-story foyer with limestone floor, curved staircase and crystal chandelier.
The kitchen includes an island with a food prep sink and custom cabinetry. The home also has a wine cellar, which its new owner is just old enough to stock. It sits on landscaped grounds with a pool, spa and pool house.
Pena, 21, sings with the pop music band Big Time Rush and plays the character Carlos Garcia on the Nickelodeon series "Big Time Rush" (2009-present). He has appeared on "Summerland" (2005), "Judging Amy" (2005) and "ER" (2004).
Carol Wolfe of Rodeo Realty, Encino, was the listing agent on the property. Andrew Mortaza from Keller Williams, Burbank, represented the buyer.
