Moby Lists Red Oak Manor, One of Two Homes He Owns in L.A.’s Los Feliz

Location:
Los Angeles, Calif.
Price:
$4.495 million
Size:
4,644 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms

Innovative electronic music super star and DJ Moby listed Red Oak Manor, one of his two homes in the coveted, star-studded Oaks neighborhood in L.A.’s Los Feliz area, with an asking price of $4.495 million. The spritely, smooth pated and mononymic six-time Grammy nominated musician purchased the 1926 faux-timbered and stone accented Tudor residence just about two years ago for $3.4 million and the savvy design and architecture aficionado custom renovated the residence in a fashion that smoothly combines carefully preserved original architectural details with modern-day creature comforts. Tucked behind a high, scrupulously clipped hedge and a secured entry gate amid a wooded idyll, the two-story residence, described in listing descriptions as a “generational masterpiece,” has five bedrooms and six full and two half bathrooms in 4,644-square feet.

A stone pathway passes through a picturesque stand of trees to a tomato red front door with leaded glass inserts and narrow gauge hardwoods extend from the foyer into a spacious formal living room that features a groin-vaulted ceiling, an extra-wide bay window and a fireplace with elaborate original mantelpiece. There’s a second fireplace in the formal dining room that also has French doors to the yard and a newly installed, high-end all-white kitchen includes a sizable center island, a walk-in pantry and a cozy breakfast area with built-in banquette seating and French doors to a stone-paved dining terraces in a shady, wooded setting. A separate family room with partly vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves along two walls opens through French doors to a newly created covered patio that sits on top of a two-car carport where it overlooks looks the swimming pool.

There are two guest/family bedrooms on the upper floor along with two ample master suites, one with a fireplace and the other with a custom-fitted dressing area and an adjoining fitness room or yoga studio. Tucked in a discreet corner of the house is a multi-room staff or guest suite with exterior entrance and an entirely plywood paneled bedroom that features a secret entrance to a marble bathroom with steam room.

Leisure amenities and outdoor spaces include the aforementioned dining terrace outside the kitchen, a small deck on the second floor that overlooks the front walk and a dark-bottomed free-form swimming pool and spa that are surrounded by charcoal colored flagstone terracing and backed by a towering, privatizing stand of mature trees.

Moby additionally owns a second house just down the street, a 4,006-square-foot, red brick accented 1920s Tudor cottage with four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms plus a detached pool house with another bathroom that he picked up in September 2014 for $2.9 million.
