Dave Stewart, who was half of the 1980’s pop group Eurythmics, has just placed his Toluca Lake home on the market for $5.65 million. He only owned the gated home for a couple of years after buying it in 2015.
The singer-songwriter is not the only celebrity to have had the pleasure of owning this Spanish-style home: It was also previously owned by TV producer Mark Brazill, silent film star Billie Dove, and Academy Award-winner Janet Gaynor.
Built in 1927 by designer William Klump, the four-bedroom, six-bathroom features a spacious motor court at the front, and the foyer is impressive with its spiral staircase and beamed ceilings.
The 6,000-square-foot home has been lovingly restored and updated over the years. Today, the home is much more modern and contemporary compared to its original days, yet still retains much of its vintage charm.
Some of the more noteworthy features in the home include arched windows and doorways, French doors, vaulted and beamed ceilings, and rustic Saltillo floor tiles.
The updated kitchen comes equipped with white cabinetry offset with dark counters, a large center island, Viking appliances, and a unique pantry covered with gothic arched doors. Off the kitchen is the formal dining room, which overlooks the swimming pool through arched doorways.
The spacious family room is centered on a picturesque fireplace flanked on either side by sets of wood French doors that lead directly to the backyard space.
The master bedroom features vaulted beamed ceilings, a fireplace, large windows, and French foods that lead to a private terrace.
Other notable spaces in the home include a library, office area, detached studio/gym, a 700-square-foot guest house, and an expansive covered upper outdoor deck decorated with twinkling lights and blinds to offer shade.
The outdoor grounds span over half an acre, and are covered with a mixture of lush greenery and decadent flagstone. There’s also a swimming pool, spa, seating areas, fireplace, koi pond with a waterfall feature, and wonderful views of Lakeside Golf Club to complete the outdoor space.
Stewart, who rose to fame alongside singer Annie Lennox with the Eurythmics and later became a successful solo artist, is planning on trading in his LA digs for something in Nashville, where he is reportedly relocating to.
