Antonio Villaraigosa, the former mayor of Los Angeles and a California gubernatorial candidate, has listed his home in the Hollywood Hills for sale at $2.995 million.

The contemporary-style house sits on a hillside lot with views of the Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory, downtown L.A. and, on a clear day, the ocean.

Built in 1977 and since renovated, the multistory home has Fleetwood pocket doors, skylights, a Bulthaup kitchen system, a media room and an office/den. A two-way fireplace divides the living and dining rooms. Oversized windows are oriented toward nearby landmarks.


Four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms lie within the 3,660-square-foot interior. The master suite, which has a walk-in closet, opens directly to patio space. A small gym is in the separate guesthouse.

Villaraigosa, 66, served eight years as Los Angeles’ 41st mayor. Last year, he finished third in the primary for governor of California, behind eventual winner Gavin Newsom and businessman John Cox.

Since leaving the L.A. mayor’s office in 2013, Villaraigosa has made millions by advising companies such as Herbalife and Banc of California, teaching at USC and earning speaking fees. In November, following the primary elections, he reportedly joined a Washington lobbying firm.

He bought the Hollywood Hills home in 2015 for about $2.5 million, records show.
