Anthony Gonzalez of the electronic music band M83 has bought the Silver Lake home of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and his wife, Amy Wakeland. The sales price has yet to be made public.
The boxy contemporary, built in 2010, was the Garcetti family home before they moved to Getty House, an 8,076-square-foot English Tudor-style mansion in Windsor Square that serves as the official mayoral residence.
Among the 4,000 square feet of living space in Gonzalez’s new place are an open living room, dining room, media room, office/gym, six bedrooms and five bathrooms. The sleek kitchen features concrete counters and a walk-in pantry.
The top-level master suite looks out at the reservoir. There are multiple decks with views of the city.
The couple bought the hillside property four years ago for $1.425 million. The home was briefly listed in April for a one-year lease at $8,500 a month.
Gonzalez founded the electronic music band in 2001. M83 has six studio albums and two soundtrack albums, including one for last year’s Tom Cruise/Morgan Freeman sci-fi film “Oblivion.” “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming,” released three years ago and promoted on a Europe and North America tour, drew an international following. The French producer moved to Los Angeles four years ago.
Garcetti took office last summer, becoming L.A.'s 42nd mayor.
