Musician's Paradise, Estate of the Day
You may not recognize the name of Paul Oakenfold but you've likely heard his music. Oakenfold is a popular techno DJ and has had his music and remixes featured on a variety of soundtracks. His home, which recently hit the market, is a musicians paradise. Oakenfold bought the home in 2003 for a price in the $2.5 to $3 million neighborhood. The home sits a promontory above the Hollywood Bowl and has some truly amazing views. As the Real Estalker Mama notes, the exterior isn't particularly notable but the interior is lovely. French doors abound and the master bedroom is particularly stunning because the French doors basically open up the entire room, check out the night shot in the gallery of listing pictures, it's amazing. There are four bedrooms total. The home has a large recording studio and there is a lovely pool, spa and patio area and a nice patch of grassy lawn. Oh, and about that Hollywood Bowl view, the home has bleachers so that, with a set of binoculars, you can watch the show for free. Maybe that savings would help defray some of the $10 million asking price.
