Musician Neil Finn’s relatively new gig with Fleetwood Mac has led to a new house: this Southern Colonial in Los Feliz. Finn shelled out $4.3 million for the home, which dates to the 1920s, but has been extensively renovated.
The home’s façade is distinguished by symmetry, extended eves, black trim on white, and a recessed entry presided over by a formal, column-supported Georgian portico. A front door in soft red stands out dramatically, and also stands as a striking culmination to the red brick front walk.
The interiors begin with a classic foyer; staircase and, it appears, original narrow-plank oak. The home develops from that point as warm, breezy, and unpretentious. Sets of French doors open to exterior living spaces at several points. Standout spaces include the kitchen and dayroom—as optimistic as can be—and the library, finished with a series of sapphire aquamarine built-ins.
Finn co-founded pop band Crowded House back in the 1980s. He wrote and sang their international hit Don’t Dream It’s Over. He joined Fleetwood Mac about two years ago.
