This must be music to DJ Steve Angello’s ears: After a couple of months on the market, his Los Angeles abode has sold for an undisclosed amount. The former member of Swedish House Mafia had listed the place for $5.5 million.
But if the hit-maker wants to score an invite for dinner at his former Hollywood Hills residence, he probably can get it: The buyer is fellow DJ Calvin Harris, through his LLC, according to property records.
We can see the appeal of the home to another music producer. The place not only easily fits a grand piano, it has also been set up with a recording studio. And Harris follows in a line of musicians to own the home.
In 2013 Angello bought the place from musician and composer Tom Rothrock for $3.9 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Rothrock and his wife had spent years renovating the home, maintaining the 1940s design details while updating the interiors. The result is a restored “architectural masterpiece” that combines its old-world Hollywood history with modern technology and an indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
The 4,500-square-foot home has four bedrooms and five baths. A stunning living room with an 18-foot-ceiling and walls of glass looks out to city and canyon views. An eat-in kitchen combined with a family room opens to the pool on one side and a deck on the other.
The two-story office has a recording studio on its second floor. And the two-story master suite features a double-height bay window. The attached guest suite has a private entrance and spans two floors. The pool area features an outdoor shower and lounge.
The home is located near Hollywood, downtown, Sunset Strip and bike paths. Plus, the gated motor court offers plenty of parking.
It’s unclear if Harris plans to move in: The 33-year-old Scottish record producer already owns a nearby home, which he tried to sell last year.
Calvin Harris is the stage name for Adam Richard Wiles, who made the 2015 Forbes list as the highest-paid DJ, earning $66 million in that year alone.
He’s also made headlines for dating British singer Rita Ora from 2013-14 and then pop superstar Taylor Swift from 2015-16. Perhaps Swift gave her guy some home investment tips, as Swift is no slouch in the real estate department.
Either way, it makes sense that Harris would invest in real estate, continuing with this melodious buy.
