Sum 41's Deryck Whibley lists Sherman Oaks home as he trades spaces

As Deryck Whibley makes his way back on the comeback tour, don’t expect a reunion between him and his Sherman Oaks home. The punk rocker of Sum 41 fame has put his longtime digs up for sale at $2.799 million.

It’s not a huge surprise that Whibley is selling: In January, he splashed out $2.8 million for a gated villa in the Amestoy Estates area of Encino.

The 5,312-square-foot, Spanish-style house listed for sale is low-key and well-staged in a contemporary style. Hardwood floors, recessed ceilings and gothic chandeliers are among the distinguishing details.

A formal living room has a fireplace and slender beams that run across the vaulted ceilings, and a breakfast nook is done up in dark wainscoting and wallpaper. A wide island/breakfast bar and custom cabinetry highlight the chef’s kitchen.

A sweeping spiral staircase leads upstairs to a loft/office and a master suite with dual walk-in closets. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in all.

Outdoors, the backyard centers on a swimming pool and spa with a waterfall feature. A trellis-topped patio, lawns and privacy hedges fill out the grounds.

A country-style kitchen boasts a wide island/breakfast bar and custom cabinetry.

The house last changed hands seven years ago for $1.7 million, records show.

Nicki LaPorta and Karen Crystal of Ewing Sotheby’s International Real Estate hold the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Whibley, 35, is a founding member of the rock band Sum 41, for which he is a guitarist and lead vocalist. After years of dealing with physical problems related to substance abuse, Whibley reunited with his bandmates in early 2015. The band is set to release its sixth studio album later this year.
