Grammy-winning record producer Joel Diamond has listed his gated English country-style home in Calabasas at $1,895,000.
For the record: An earlier version of this story misspelled gave an incorrect age for Diamond.
The 4,400-square-foot house, with five bedrooms and five bathrooms in two stories, was built in 1980. It sits on an acre of park-like grounds that include a seasonal creek crossed by a whimsical wooden bridge. "You will hardly believe you are in Los Angeles," said Diamond, who shares the home with his teenage daughter.
The dining area can accommodate 16, and the movie screening room features a 10-foot screen. A winding exterior staircase leads to the spa area.
There is a newly built 1,600-square-foot guesthouse, a full-size tennis court, a gazebo with waterfalls down the sides and an outdoor entertainment area with a 30-foot granite bar, fireplace and a TV that rises out of a deck.
Diamond, 63, has produced 36 gold and platinum records for recording artists including Engelbert Humperdinck, Helen Reddy, Gloria Gaynor and David Hasselhoff. He has held executive and creative positions for music companies including Sony. Recent projects of his Silver Blue Productions include three No. 1 CDs for the classical music group the 5 Browns.
