Rock and roll producer Scott Humphrey has placed his house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills -- complete with a recording studio -- on the market for $2,695,000.
Kudos to the Los Angeles Times' Ann Brenoff who beat us to the punch on this one with her report on it the other day. In our own research a few days ago, we also had uncovered the listing of this modern house (which has been billed as a "celebrity compound") by Humphrey, who is best known as Rob Zombie's producer (and who is shown here on the right in the photo of Zombie and Humphrey), but we had not yet written a post on it. Brenoff, as a result, did a fine job of moving quickly to write about this listing, and she got the scoop. Humphrey's four-bedroom house, which is in Nichols Canyon, came on the market actually a few weeks back, on November 21.
Built in 1991, the house (which measures either 4,348 square feet, according to public records, or 4,997 square feet, according to other public records) has expansive spaces, large scale rooms, zen gardens and loggias, according to listing information. The house also is home to Humphrey's recording studio known as the "Chop Shop," and also has a screening room, a master suite with a lofty spa bath and an overflowing vessel tub, and three en-suite bedrooms with walk-in closets, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.42-acre (18,295-square-foot) parcel include a waterfall, according to public records and listing information.
Records show that Humphrey, who is far from being a household name, owns the house through an LLC company, and that he purchased it in mid-2000 for $1,685,000. For reasons we can't entirely understand, the house has one address in some of its public records, but a slightly different address in some other of its public records.
