TV and movie composer John Debney is singing a happy tune with the purchase of his Los Angeles-area home for $4.65 million.
Located on the Toluca Lake golf course, the “Jungle Book” composer’s new digs stand out with 5,400 square feet and plenty of space to entertain. The six-bedroom, six-bath contemporary farmhouse-style residence keeps it urbane-rustic inside, with many familiar accents coming into play: light wide-plank hardwoods, vaulted ceilings, and plenty of glass.
The home’s open-concept layout allows for a natural flow from the living room to the dining room, and on to the great room-style family room and kitchen; fluid transitions that feel right. The gourmet kitchen doesn’t take chances, with white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, but it’s bright and optimistic, and the massive eat-in island gives it excellent scale.
The living room’s wall of pocketing glass doors open to the backyard for the essential SoCal interior/exterior flow. The outdoor living space contains a swimming pool and a patio with a wet bar, and a detached guesthouse cozily accommodates family or friends who stay on for a bit.
Debney’s recent television work includes scoring ‘The Orville’; 2019 features he’s scored include ‘The Beach Bum’.
