Gwen Stefani’s Former Spanish Cabana Hits the Market
She may be known for drawing inspiration from Japanese culture and fashion, but Gwen Stefani’s former home exemplifies the Spanish detailing characteristic of California architecture in the 1920s. The Los Angeles estate just hit the market for $5.195 million.
“The grand 2-story entry welcomes you into nearly 5,000 square feet of living space,” real estate agent Tracey Clarke writes in the listing description. Without feeling pretentious, a sense of Colonial grandiosity continues into the living room with a 25-foot ceiling and french doors leading into a large courtyard patio.
The current owners renovated the property, located at 2566 Aberdeen Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027, while aiming to maintain its historical and architectural integrity. As a result, the home is filled with tasteful vintage details such as a cabana bath, turquoise-tiled fountain and arched passageways.
According to property records, Stefani purchased the home in January 1998 for $1.375 million and sold it in April 2007 to “That ’70s Show” co-creator Mark Brazill for $4.795 million.
Brazill didn’t last long in the 4-bedroom, though, selling the property for a loss of nearly $1 million in October 2008. The current owners are trying to avoid a similar fate, asking four times more than the median Los Feliz home value.
Meanwhile, the No Doubt singer and rocker husband Gavin Rossdale are enjoying life with their kids, Kingston and Zuma. The couple purchased a Beverly Hills home in August 2006 for $13.25 million.
