Former Maroon 5 Drummer Ryan Dusick Lists in Los Feliz
An authentic Wallace Neff-restored home hitting the market is always going to garner some attention in the Los Angeles market, and if it happens to have a celebrity angle — even a small one — then all the better.
The home at 5181 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027 is currently owned by Ryan Dusick, the former drummer for Maroon 5. Dusick was first in Kara’s Flowers, a Nirvana-inspired band that led to the formation of Maroon 5 in the early 2000s. He played on the album “Songs About Jane” in 2002 and joined the band onstage to accept two Grammys, but by 2004, constant touring took its toll on Dusick’s arms. He took time off from the musician life and picked up this place in Los Feliz. However, the rest wasn’t enough for Dusick, and Maroon 5 replaced him with another drummer.
Now Dusick is selling the vintage estate with a nice price tag of $1.249 million. He bought the home for $1.199 million.
Gated and private, the residence sits near Griffith Park Observatory with views of downtown Los Angeles. Updated while retaining the home’s 1920s charm — think warm hardwoods and dark beams — the house has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on a 2,285-square-foot floor plan.
The best part of the home is undoubtedly the outdoor living space. Terracotta tile patios hold a generous seating and kitchen area, framed by ironwork and vine-covered pergola.
