Crooner k.d. lang Sells Wooded Home to Maroon 5 Keyboardist
Everyone needs a place to escape from the absolute torch and twang of worldwide concert touring, not to mention the generally prying eyes of Los Angeles celebrity gawkers. But k.d. lang has given up her retreat in the sycamore-secluded Beverly Glen real estate market.
The Canadian-born crooner sold her 2,900-square-foot hideaway at 8062 Woodrow Wilson Dr. in Los Angeles to Maroon 5 band member Jesse Carmichael for $1.9 million. According to public data, lang purchased the home in August 1997 for $1,075,000.
The sale comes just a few months after lang broke with her longtime partner, Jamie Price.
The chanteuse with the bellowing pipes may not be missing the homestead, given that “Miss Chatelaine” is performing concerts all across the U.S. and Canada, a tour that will keep her on the road through September.
Meanwhile, the 3-bed, 2-bath home is described in the listing as a “perfect sanctuary for a celebrity client” and is “extremely private and gated on a large wooded lot set among beautiful sycamore trees.” Perhaps Carmichael took description to heart and leapt at the chance on the heels of his own personal announcement that he is taking “…a temporary break from the band to pursue more full time studies in music and the healing arts…”
The home has hand-hewn beams, hardwood floors, Craftsman influences and includes three stone fireplaces (living room, dining room and master bedroom). It also includes a pool, spa and large, outdoor entertaining area.
