This Bucolic Los Angeles Cottage Has a Surprising Celebrity Owner
Four-time platinum artist Beck has listed the Mandeville Canyon home he and wife Marisa Ribisi purchased just nineteen months ago for $3.75 million, and it's not the bling-ed out mega mansion one might expect. (Fellow multi-platinum artist Rihanna's $6.8 million California home, by comparison, is quintessential rock and roll.)
Located down a bucolic lane and shrouded in privacy, the three-bedroom, 2,630-square foot spread is warm and inviting, with a lodge-like interior reminiscent of a Nancy Meyer film.
The first-floor living room features hand-hewn ceiling beams and leads out to a brick-paved loggia with a comfortable seating area. A cozy dining room offers residents another quiet place to enjoy the view. The home's renovated kitchen is refined and features marble countertops and traditional fixtures.
Upstairs, the neutral-themed bedrooms are spacious and inviting.
Variety reported the listing and covered the original sale in 2016 when Beck and his wife paid above asking price for the home.
Previous listing photos reveal the rustic Los Angeles estate was always architecturally noteworthy but received a welcomed refresh once Beck took ownership.
It appears as though the respected musician enjoys buying and selling property quite a bit. He purchased a near-seven million dollar historic Hancock Park home in 2007 and then unloaded it in 2010 for just $5.6 million. Prior to that, he picked up a $1 million Los Feliz property, which he has yet to sell, and prior to that, he bought and sold a Santa Monica property within the span of five months.
Richard Sterns and Carrie Berkman Lewis of Partners Trust has the current listing.
