Martin Johnson, the lead singer and songwriter for Boys Like Girls, bought a home in Studio City for $737,000 earlier this year and recently finished remodeling it.


The contemporary house, built in 1978, features canyon views, a bonus/entertainment room and a spa. There are two bedrooms, 21/2 bathrooms and nearly 2,700 square feet of living space.

The band released the album bearing its name in 2006 and released Love Drunk in 2009. This year Johnson debuted some of the solo material he has written while the band is on hiatus.

Sharona Alperin of Sotheby's Sunset office had the listing and Scott Patterson of Nourmand & Associates, Beverly Hills, represented Johnson, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
