Singer/musician Tom DeLonge of Blink-182 has listed his house in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. for $6,250,000 or $6,295,000, depending upon which source one consults.
Although we have never written about DeLonge on this blog, we have avidly followed his real-estate transactions for many years. Few celebrities have bought or sold more real estate over the last decade than DeLonge (Nic Cage, Billy Joel, Ellen DeGeneres and Kelsey Grammer all come to mind). And those who have bought or sold more tend to do so all around the country (maybe with the exception of Joel); DeLonge concentrates his buying and selling largely in San Diego County.
As for the house he is selling, records show that DeLonge paid $5,500,000 in March 2005 for the house through his Chloe Grey Trust (sometimes also shown as Grey Chloe Trust), according to public records.
The Wall Street Journal today (link not yet available online) reported on DeLonge's listing of the house, which is at 18433 Via Candela in Rancho Santa Fe.
Built in 2003, DeLonge's house has 6,183 square feet, according to public records, or 6,500 square feet, according to listing information and the Journal. Features in the four-bedroom, U-shaped house include six baths, walls of glass that disappear into pockets, open and airy indoor/outdoor living spaces, a courtyard with an outdoor sound system, a master suite with golf and mountain views and a casual limestone spa bath, cherry wood ceilings throughout, sophisticated art lighting, secondary bedroom suites that open to their own private gardens, an attached guest house, and an executive office with seamless glass doors and a private hobby room/retreat, according to listing information.
The property measures 1.5 acres, according to one online listing sheet, and 1.1 acres, according to another. Public records show that DeLonge owns two adjacent parcels, which might explain the discrepancy.
As for the listing price, the online listing sheet says it's on the market for $6,295,000, while the Journal reported today that it's listed for $6,250,000.
