OneRepublic’s Brent Kutzle sells Topanga perch for $1.865 million


Musician Brent Kutzle wasn’t quite able to record a hit in Topanga. The OneRepublic bassist and cellist just sold his scenic mountain retreat for $1.865 million, or $235,000 shy of what he paid for the place last spring, records show.

Privacy is the property’s main draw, as the four-acre spread is perched at the end of a private road with panoramic views of the surrounding canyons and rock formations. At the center sits a modern farmhouse with three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 3,800 square feet.


Heated concrete floors and plenty of windows fill the open-concept floor plan, which holds a living room with a fireplace, dining area and center-island kitchen. Throughout the space, sliding glass doors open to the grassy grounds.

Upstairs, there’s a bonus room, office and master suite, as well as a loft accessed by a spiral staircase. The level expands to a spacious terrace and covered deck that take in the scenic setting.

Tony Mark and Russell Grether of Compass held the listing. Jennifer Chrisman, also with Compass, represented the buyer.

A native of Fountain Valley, Kutzle has recorded four albums with the pop-rock band OneRepublic, including 2016’s “Oh My My.” Their latest effort, “Human,” is set to release later this year.
