Benji Madden takes his dolls, and rocks out of Glendale
Pop punk rocker Benji Madden of Good Charlotte has sold his gated vampire lair in Glendale for his asking price of $2.135 million.
Set on a half-acre, the Traditional-style home was depersonalized before being put on the market. Madden said he wanted the place to look like a “vampire” house on an episode of “MTV Cribs” and decorated the home with old family photos, heavy curtains and his creepy doll collection.
The compound, which he bought a decade ago for $1.55 million, has an expanse of lawn and a motorcourt at the front, a guest house, a swimming pool and a pool house. The living room of the three-story house, built in 1951, features a brick fireplace and French doors and windows.
A formal foyer, a winding staircase, a den, an office, a gym, four bedrooms and seven bathrooms are within the 5,346 square feet of living space.
Madden, 35, is guitarist/vocalist for Good Charlotte and the rock duo The Madden Brothers. A composer, he has written music for the “2014 MTV Video Music Awards” and “The Voice.”
He owns another house in the L.A. area.
Thomas Atamian of Dilbeck Real Estate was the listing agent. Jennifer Parker-Stanton of Deasy/Penner & Partners represented the buyer.
