A six-bedroom, 8,679-square-foot mansion in the Beverly Hills, Calif. postal region (also known as the BH PO) that rocker Adam Duritz once owned has been placed on the market for $8,250,000.
The Los Angeles Times' Ann Brenoff wrote about this listing on Thursday, but she erroneously wrote that Duritz is the current owner. He isn't. Records show that he sold the house, at 1404 Dawnridge Drive, in 2004 for $2,250,000. The Times' Ruth Ryon even wrote about this sale back in February 2004.
Built in 1993, the house has six bedrooms, according to listing information (or five bedrooms, according to public records), six and a half baths, a grand entrance, a private screening room (with a curtained movie screen -- see attached pic), and a master suite that occupies the entire west wing, according to public records and listing information.
The current owner (a non-celebrity) expanded the house significantly since buying it in late 2007 for $4,300,000. Previous public records (from when Duritz owned it) measured the house at 6,844 square feet.
Records show that the property recently has taken a new parcel number after consolidating two previous parcel numbers by combining two separate properties. One of the parcels is a vacant, 0.24-acre (10,498-square-foot) lot, while the other is a 0.16-acre (6,970-square-foot) lot that contains the house.
For the record, Duritz continues to own a 4,952-square-foot loft-style condominium unit near Cooper Union in Manhattan that he purchased in early 2003 for $2,400,000, according to public records.
