Drummer Max Weinberg and his wife, Rebecca, have sold a Sunset Strip-area compound for $2.95 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.


Sitting on nearly an acre, the Midcentury Modern home has clean lines and sliding walls of glass that disappear into pockets. The redone kitchen, with custom cabinetry and Miele appliances, is adjacent to a living room with 14-foot ceilings. The master bedroom and bathroom have dual poured concrete vanities and a wood floor. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are in the main house, which connects by covered breezeway to the two-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse. The grounds include a swimming pool and a lawn with city views.

Weinberg, 59, is known for his stints as Bruce Springsteen's drummer with E Street Band and as bandleader on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" (1993-2009) and "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien" (2009-10).

The Weinbergs bought the property in 2009 for $2,888,000, public records show.

H. Blair Chang and Billy Rose of Prudential California, Beverly Hills, had the listing, according to the MLS, while Brett Lawyer of Sotheby's International Realty represented the buyer.
