Guitar stylist Lindsey Buckingham has listed a brand new Brentwood house for sale. Buckingham—best known as the fingerpicking guitarist and singer of the most financially successful incarnation of Fleetwood Mac—is asking $22.5 million for the home in Westside, a brightly 21st century version of a colonial revival.
The home dates to this year. Buckingham purchased the property in 2012, for $5.8 million. The lot measures a little more than eight-tenths of an acre.
Shingled and dormered, the house’s façade is a symmetrical statement broken by an extension and sprawling design which sweeps into a three-bay garage. The entrance is a classic portico with a balustrade.
There are six bedrooms, seven baths, and three half-baths throughout the home. Square footage can only be estimated, but the interior living spaces probably measure around 7,000-8,000. A small, detached and self-contained guest house on the property adds an estimated 750-1000 square feet to the total.
The contemporary design favors light and space, and features the liberated feel of vaulted ceilings, an open-concept, and the continuous availability of points of exit to the property exterior which are scattered throughout the home. Windows are large, offering an acute sense of continuation, and making the green of the property an interior color. Floors are sustainably-forested wide-plank hardwood, matte finished natural. The home cinema and entertainment room incorporates a wet bar, and features tiered seating.
Fireplaces, an office, and a bright, open master suite are all well-executed. A good deal of marble, some nice millwork, and top-flight finishing. No surprises here, really, but the result is a thoughtfully designed and very well-constructed home.
The property exterior features bluestone patios, an attached pergola, and a simple pool/spa and pool house amid the nicely proportioned slice of landscaped flora.
Buckingham’s unique style of guitar-playing, and assertive vocal are shown off to great effect on his recent collaboration with fellow Mac alumnus Christine McVie; the album is called ‘Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie’ and is essentially Fleetwood Mac without Stevie Nicks. It was released about a week ago, to critical acclaim.
