Singer-songwriter Annie Lennox has picked up a new residence in Los Angeles. Lennox—who took home an Academy Award for her songwriting/performance contribution to 2004’s ‘The Return of the King’—paid a little less than $4.4 million for the property, a case-study influenced P&B home designed by Buff, Hensman and Associates, and built in 1962 in Hollywood Hills West.

Concrete, timber, glass, geometry and blurred interior/exterior living styles give the house the appeal of a classic mid-century. Renovations have been sensitive, and much of the period feel remains, including a prominent corner fireplace in whitewashed brick in the living room. The home rambles ranch-like, with polished concrete floors and an open concept giving it a loft-like feel, and decks and patios easily accessible through sliding or retractable glass.

The home extends to 2,723 square feet, with three bedrooms and four baths throughout. Renovations include a children’s room with a very cool incorporated bunk/study nook with built-in ladder, shelving, and backlit display niches.

The property exterior is quite private, with hardwood decks on the canyon side, and patios and a sunlounge streetside. A classic inset block front walk, a covered porch, and fairly dramatic views helped sell the home.

Lennox’s sixth studio album—2014’s ‘Nostalgia’—covered jazz and soul classics from Duke Ellington, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and Hoagy Carmichael, among others.
