Justin Bieber has put his Buckhead house hunt on hold for a while to hole up at the intergalactic digs of famous ATL producer Dallas Austin. TMZ reports that Shirtless Boy Wonder will rent Austin's space-age mansion off Northside Drive for the next three months while he records a hip-hop album and searches for a permanent domicile in the area. Austin's contemporary wonderland would definitely violate one of Bieber's home requirements: that it not be visible from the street. If you've seen this place — which is clearly visible from Northside Drive, especially in winter — you know it's as inconspicuous as a drugged-up teen idol drag-racing a Lamborghini.
Property records show Austin has owned this choice piece of land since 1999 and built his 5,500 square-foot modern manse a decade ago. It has four bedrooms and a rooftop like a sleek pancake. In a recent Instagram caption, Austin calls his home the "Most magical place u can live in." Until the Biebster wrecks it, that is.
The troublesome 19-year-old with a history of terrorizing his California neighbors is buying a second home in Atlanta in hopes of tapping into the thriving hip-hop scene and evading the paparazzi hordes. More power to him if he's seeking a respite in our verdant city. Nothing helps a kid get his head straight like huge contemporary living quarters. But what's the over-under on Bieber causing ruckus on Cheshire Bridge in the near future?
