A rental home owned by rocker Tommy Shaw of Styx has sold in Hollywood Hills home for $2.114 million.

The chic Midcentury Modern-style house, built on a quarter-acre in the hills of the Beachwood Canyon area, sits behind a steel and frosted-glass gate.

Among features are polished concrete floors, a glassed-in foyer, a high-ceiling living room and a chipped-glass fireplace. The 2,207 square feet of open-plan space includes an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

The master suite has a fireplace, walk-in closet and transom windows for a total of three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a powder room.

Glass doors open to a swimming pool and expansive deck that take in views of the cityscape, mountains and canyons. There's carport parking.

Shaw, 61, has worked with Damn Yankees and Shaw Blades as well as the big-hair band Styx, which had such 1970s hits as "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)" and "Renegade." The guitarist-singer-songwriter has also released several solo albums, including his bluegrass album "The Great Divide."

He bought the property in 2011 for $1.09 million and had listed it for $1.95 million.

Rose Ware and Terry Canfield Schmidt of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties were the listing agents. Sarah Blanchard and Chaya Van Essen of Teles Properties represented the buyer.
