Drew Taggart—half of DJ duo Chainsmokers—is selling his six-bedroom contemporary in Laurel Canyon; the elegantly designed modern on one acre hit the Los Angeles open market this month with an asking price of $14.45 million.
The house is square-shaped; inside its 11,000 sq. ft. of living area, all roads lead to the meditative open-ceiling courtyard that is at its center. The exterior walls are expressed in dark-stained plank and large glass panes, giving the home an uninterrupted sense of style and flow that translates neatly to the interior spaces.
There’s a bit of glitz in this one to be sure; on the glam size of the equation is a freestanding wet bar in highly figured marble—it looks to be a particularly dramatic bit of Calacatta—a climate-controlled wine display, and a spa-like master bath with a bookmatched marble shower and matching soaking tub backsplash. A guest room features a tile wall in an abstract geometric pattern; the billiards room boasts a wall decorated with a global relief.
A turnkey music studio was surely an attractive amenity for Taggart. Others in the home, and outside it, include a home cinema, a pool and sunlounge surrounded by towering plantings, and a gym.
The Chainsmokers’ debut album, Memories…Do Not Open, topped the Billboard 200 chart. Their latest release is 2019’s World War Joy.
