John Fogerty sells Beverly Crest rental home

Singer-songwriter John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame has sold an investment property in the Beverly Crest area for $1.475 million.

The Traditional-style single-story home is set on a three-quarter-acre knoll and surrounded by mature trees. The updated house, built in 1961, features vaulted beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace and skylights.

The 1,920 square feet of living space include formal dining and living rooms, a breakfast area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. French doors open to a brick patio and the backyard.

Fogerty, 69, was the lead singer and guitarist for CCR. The rock band, which formed in the late 1960s and had such hits as "Proud Mary" and “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame more than two decades ago.

His “1969” world tour this year performing the early hits includes a summer stop at the Hollywood Bowl.

He later turned to a solo career, where he found continued success. His most recent solo album, “Wrote a Song for Everyone,” was released two years ago.

Fogerty bought the property in 2008 for $1.385 million and had leased it out in recent years at $5,400 a month.

Mark Wollman of Hilton & Hyland/Christie’s International Real Estate was the listing agent. The sale closed outside the Multiple Listing Service.
