Musician Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics lists pedigreed Toluca Lake home for sale


Singer-songwriter and producer Dave Stewart of the pop duo Eurythmics has listed his home in Toluca Lake for sale at $5.65 million.

The Spanish-style compound, built by Toluca Lake pioneer and designer William Klump in 1927, has a Hollywood pedigree that spans several generations. Among those to have called the estate home was silent film star Billie Dove as well as Oscar-winning actress Janet Gaynor and her husband, costume designer Adrian of “The Wizard of Oz” fame.

More recently, TV producer Mark Brazill owned the walled and gated house a decade before Stewart bought it in 2015.


Restored and updated, the four-bedroom, six-bathroom home retains its vintage good looks while incorporating a range of modern comforts. Details include curved French doors and windows, beamed ceilings and Saltillo tile floors. There are fireplaces in the living room, library and master bedroom.

A family room, a dining room and updated kitchen with a broad island/breakfast bar and Viking appliances are also within roughly 4,800 square feet of living space. A pantry in the kitchen sits behind gothic arched doors.

Outdoors, grounds of more than half an acre include a swimming pool and a koi pond with a waterfall feature, a detached studio/gym and a 700-square-foot guest house. Views take in fairways and greens at the Lakeside Golf Club.

Stewart, who has worked with such artists as Bono, Tom Petty, Katy Perry, Stevie Nicks and Mick Jagger, moving his operations to Nashville, according to listing agent Tina Stern of Wish Sotheby’s International Real Estate.

The 64-year-old guitarist and producer partnered with singer Annie Lennox in 1980 to create the Eurythmics. The pair gained fame with their second album, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”

As a solo artist, he has released nine solo albums, most recently “Lucky Numbers” four years ago.
