The Brentwood home of Esa-Pekka Salonen, former music director of the L.A. Philharmonic, has come on the Multiple Listing Service at $4.1 million.
Designed by architect Ted Tanaka, the six-bedroom, 5 1/2 -bathroom house has 4,695 square feet of living space. A floating staircase and 2 1/2 -story tall window walls add drama to the living-dining area. Outside there's a garden courtyard, an outdoor living room with built-in seating and a swimming pool.
The property was purchased in 2002 for $1,516,000, according to public records.
Salonen, 51, led the Philharmonic for 17 years. He was its 10th conductor and had the longest term in the orchestra's nine decades. The Finnish conductor and composer now plans to spend more time composing. He is scheduled to conduct Leos Janacek's opera, "The House of the Dead," at the Metropolitan Opera in New York this fall.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
