It's a done deal for this four bedroom house and its singer-songwriter owner, Stephan Moccio who left his Rosedale neighbourhood for a new life in Los Angeles. Moccio, who wrote Miley Cyrus' hit single Wrecking Ball, sold his modern abode under asking for $2,225,000 million. The 3,500 square foot house with concrete floors on 61 Astley Ave. was listed for $2,395,000 million, and Chestnut Park Real Estate tells us that it was a quick close, speculating the reason being an impending and urgent move to the United States. "My head is spinning right now," Moccio tells The Toronto Star of his growing success. "Moving down here, the whole game has changed for me overnight. When you have a number one song, the phone is literally ringing non-stop."

Moccio co-wrote the theme song "I Believe" performed by Nikki Yanofsky at the Vancouver Olympics, and has collaborated with other artists as Josh Groban, Jessica Simpson and Celine Dion. He was also a judge on the now defunct Canada's Got Talent. In his rise to stardom, it's nice Moccio still remembers his Toronto roots recently tweeting, "Canada! My home and native land. I feel your love. Thank you. XO." Sadly, his move to L.A. is official. Moccio's tweeting location now reads, Los Angeles, CA.
