Back on May 21, 2015, the always informative Lauren Beale at LA Times Hot Property reported that the Jonas' Brothers family home in Toluca Lake sold on May 20, 2015 for $1.8 million.
The home measures 3 Beds/2.25 Baths on 3,467 sqft on a total lot size of 0.31 acres built in 1938. The listing description states:

THE HARDWOOD FLOORS GUIDE YOU TO THE FORMAL, CLASSICALLY DECORATED LIVING ROOM. A FIREPLACE SURROUNDED IN BREATH TAKING MARBLE & FRENCH DOORS OPENING TO THE BACK PATIO.

The Jonas Brother's family purchased this home on September 25, 2012 for $1.3 million earning a decent $500K profit before any expenses. The Jonas Brothers are synonymous with Toluca Lake as they have lived in 2 other nearby homes going back to the mid-2000's. The Toluca Lake location makes a logical choice due to the close proximity of the Disney Studios where they gained their notoriety.
