Singer @MileyCyrus puts Toluca Lake home of her teenage years on the market

Miley Cyrus’ family home in Toluca Lake is on the market at $5.995 million.

Although the singer-songwriter-actress hasn’t lived there in recent years, the more than half-acre property recalls teenage years spent lounging around the swimming pool or practicing maneuvers on the skateboard ramp.  

The walled compound, which presents only a gated drive to the street, is not far from the Bob and Dolores Hope estate.  

Beyond the gate, a tree-lined brick driveway leads to a Tuscan-style house built in 2007 and designed by Montecito architect Bob Easton. The Old World-inspired home and walls are partially wreathed in ivy.

Wrought iron work, copper rain gutters, a Juliet balcony, columns and arches are among architectural features. The three-car garage has arched individual doors.

A flagstone courtyard with a fountain sits at the home’s double-door entry. Inside, 21-foot-tall formal entry, a circular staircase topped by a skylight, a library, formal living room and dining rooms, a guitar display room, a home theater, multiple fireplaces, six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms lie within the 8,700 square feet of living space. A camera system provides security.

Mature landscaping, palm trees, gardens and lawn complete the grounds.

Cyrus, 22, gained fame starring on the series “Hannah Montana” (2006-11). Her film work includes a starring voice role on “Bolt” (2008).

The 2013 MTV Artist of the Year released her first album “Meet Miley Cyrus” in 2007. She toured last year promoting her most recent album “Bangerz.” Cyrus is working on a new album.

The property was purchased by her parents, country singer Ray Cyrus and Leticia Cyrus, in 2007 for $5.838 million and was later moved into a property trust in which she holds other real estate.

Thomas Atamian of Dilbeck Real Estate is the listing agent.
