Queen Drummer Roger Taylor Looking to Part With L.A. Home for $6.2M

Roger Taylor—drummer of legendary rock band Queen—has orchestrated the sale of his Spanish villa in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills. Having struck a chord with this property back in the early ’80s for a modest $352,000, Taylor is now setting the stage for a grand exit, with a listing price just shy of $6.2 million. The home boasts a white stucco facade contrasted with brick accents, under a crown of terra-cotta, resting on one-third of an acre of meticulously arranged grounds.

The residence, having hosted many a concerto of life’s moments over four decades, tells a tale across over 4,300 square feet of living space, artfully entwining four bedrooms and five baths within its two-level design. A masterful entry through a hand-carved door reveals an opulent foyer, where a curving, mosaic-lined staircase ascends like a scale of musical notes. The interiors sing with features such as a formal living room with a black marble fireplace and a den that harks to a lodge, complete with an imposing stone hearth.

The upper echelons of this abode house a master suite, a retreat warmed by its own fireplace and graced with a spa-like bath, promising a sanctuary of relaxation. The grounds, akin to a hidden grove, play host to a lagoon-style pool and a pathway to a secluded hillside spa.

Queen has sold over 300 million records worldwide. The band’s sole chart-topping album in the U.S. is 1980’s The Game; it features such hits as “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “Another One Bites the Dust.”
