‘Dexter’ composer Daniel Licht buys house in Topanga
This house has a story line and a cast of musicians. Roll the cameras.
Guitarist Daniel Licht, composer for the series “Dexter,” has purchased a home in Topanga for $2.09 million.
Built in 1968, the 4,682-square-foot Spanish-style home was in escrow for sale to influential guitarist Jimi Hendrix at the time of his death, according to its architect, Harry Gesner, and published reports. The home was featured two years ago on the reality real estate show “Million Dollar Listing.”
Licht plans to build a studio at the home and have it designed by 88-year-old Gesner.
Set on a knoll on nearly two acres, the home features ocean and canyon views, circular rooms, vaulted wood plank ceilings, a sunken central kitchen, three bedrooms and four bathrooms. There is a six-stall barn, a tack room and an arena.
Neighbors include Nathan Barr, a composer for “True Blood” (2008-13) and “The Americans” (2013). Several composers living in the area get together once a month or so. They include Russ Landau (“Survivor”), Denis Hannigan (“CatDog”) and Cliff Martinez (“Drive”).
In addition to scoring the weekly series “Dexter” since it started in 2006, Licht’s credits include “Body of Proof” (2011-12) and “Deception” (2013).
Drew Snyder and Sarah Sutton of Snyder Sutton Real Estate handled the transaction.
