Rocker Jakob Dylan has unloaded his seven-bedroom, 5,065-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Brentwood area for $8,225,000, after previously listing it for $11,000,000 and later for $8,995,000.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Dylan's sale of the house at 127 N. Cliffwood Avenue in Brentwood, which closed on July 7 and was recorded on September 4. The sale has gotten no attention whatsoever up until now, in part because the buyer, a financier and former investment banker who is in his 50s, is not a celebrity.

Built in 1936, the house, which is in the Brentwood Park neighborhood, has eight baths and has been restored, upgraded and expanded, according to public records and listing information. Features include a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an island, a sprawling family room, a double master, original tile, original woodwork, and seven unique custom fireplaces, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.64-acre (27,835-square-foot), gated lot include trees, gardens, a newer two-story guesthouse, a second guesthouse that’s currently used as a recording studio, a covered pool and a spa with an automatic cover, according to public records and listing information. The house officially was listed on Halloween 2008.

Dylan purchased the house in 2000 for $3,180,000. We wrote about the house in November 2008 when it was on the market (but we didn't yet know the identity of the owner), and we again penned a post on it when it looked last summer like Jakob had a deal.

It's not at all clear to us where Dylan has moved. If anyone has heard anything, drop us a note.

And as always, thanks to loyal reader tlp333 for the tip!
