Bruce Springsteen Whisper-Lists His Beverly Hills Compound

It was a veteran informant whom we affectionately call Our Fairy Godmother in Bel Air who first tattled that rock ’n’ roll icon Bruce Springsteen has engaged the services of one of Beverly Hills’ most distinguished real estate doyennes to clandestinely shop his sprawling and privately situated Benedict Canyon compound to screened and qualified buyers — with a sky-high asking price somewhere between $60 million and $70 million.

Property records and other Web-based resources show the Boss and his longtime wife, E Street Band member Patti Scialfa, acquired the two-residence estate in 1999, for $13.75 million. Without any publicly available marketing materials, little is known about the 4.5-acre compound’s current features and amenities, but at the time it was purchased, it included a 10,000-plus-square-foot Mediterranean mansion with four family bedrooms, two staff rooms and separate chauffeur’s quarters. A smaller English Country-style residence of about 7,500 square feet has — or had — four bedrooms and a double-height living room.

The Springsteens retain extensive real estate holdings in the 20-time Grammy winner’s native state of New Jersey including but not limited to a stately mansion plus a couple of substantial outbuildings on more than 14 acres in leafy Rumson, and a nearly 400-acre horse farm in the appropriately named community of Colt’s Neck.
