Canadian musician Burton Cummings has relisted his Studio City home for $4.95 million.
Cummings—best known for being the frontman of 1960’s-70’s hit machine The Guess Who—purchased the Los Angeles-area manse for $1.75 million in 2012. Set on two acres and nestled upon a lush mountainside lot, the spacious 5,000-square-foot Tudor Revival estate looks a bit like a castle atop a hill.
The four-bedroom home was built in 1976, but a comprehensive renovation has left it a bit more modern. Classic Tudor styling marks the exterior, but the interior is a blend of rustic-meets-contemporary. Wide-plank wood floors, high ceilings with exposed beams, and stone accents keep the emphasis on warmth.
Potential buyers will likely be drawn to the home’s large living spaces, most notably the open-concept family room and kitchen. The kitchen stands out with light cabinetry, stone accents, a center island, and high-end appliances, and gets a bright breakfast nook as well.
There’s more room to entertain in the formal living room with a stone fireplace capped with a heavy wood mantel, and a cozy den with built-in bookshelves. Outside, a lush lawn and a kidney-shaped swimming pool are among the highlights, and a patio and meditation garden. Expansive views of the lush hillside, the San Fernando Valley, and the Angeles National Forest are readily available.
Cummings has recovered from last year’s auto accident and is back playing music.
