Randy Jackson’s former Tarzana home makes its way to market once more


Is $2.349 million a good deal for the former Tarzana home of Randy Jackson? You be the judge.

The custom-built crib is on the market once again half a decade after the “American Idol” judge sold it for $1.9 million. Jackson took a six-figure loss on the place when he sold it; records show he shelled out $2.7 million for the property in 2005.

Set far back from the street, the gated half-acre estate in El Caballero Country Club is approached by a long, winding driveway that ends with a motor court. Topped with clay tile, the exterior features shades of tan that continue into the 5,900-square-foot floor plan.


Rich wood beams top the living and dining rooms, and coffered ceilings hang over a billiards room with a custom wet bar. The gourmet kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, sits under skylights.

Counting the guesthouse, there are six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, including a main-level master suite that opens to a private patio with a spa.

Upstairs, a second-story deck lines the backside of the home. The covered space overlooks a landscaped backyard with a swimming pool, cabana and grill.

The Grammy-winning producer, 63, has worked with such stars as Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston, among others. He’s the longest-serving judge on “American Idol” and also produced “America’s Best Dance Crew” on MTV.
