Power pop/alt rock musician Matthew Sweet has sold his home in Hollywood Hills West for $1.68 million.

The Mid-Century single-story house, built in 1958, was designed by prominent local architect Edward H. Fickett to look inward on the quarter-acre lot. The single-story home features a studio, a gym, an office, two fireplaces, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,745 square feet of living space.

Walls of glass open to the irregularly shaped swimming pool in the backyard.

The singer-songwriter, sometimes described as introverted and reserved, used the home as a place to create surrounded by art. Guitars lined his cozy studio, where he often recorded.

Sweet, 49, rose to power-pop prominence after the release of “Girlfriend” in 1991. This year he released the 1980s-inspired “Under the Covers, Vol. 3” with Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles. His movie soundtrack work includes the "Austin Powers" films.

The property previously sold in 1996 for $511,000.

Brian Ades of Sotheby’s International Realty was the buyer and handled the transaction. He is planning to remodel and restore the home.
