Home of the Week: Lakeside living with star appeal

Share via

This Toluca Lake residence made headlines two years ago when newlyweds Justin and Hailey Bieber made it their short-term marital home. But a brief brush with fame is hardly the Spanish contemporary’s only selling point.

The designer-done house opens to elegant interiors with high ceilings, dark wood floors and bands of picture windows that capture unobstructed lake views. Amenities include a subterranean garage and a professional recording studio. A lagoon-style swimming pool overlooks the private lake, which is maintained by area homeowners.
