In Beverly Hills, the home of late rock band manager Howard Kaufman has sold for $5.985 million, or $10,000 under the asking price.

It’s the end of the tour in Beverly Hills, where the home of late rock band manager Howard Kaufman has sold for $5.985 million.

That’s $10,000 less than the asking price in October, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Anchoring almost half an acre in Mulholland Estates, the 1999-built home holds four bedrooms, 3.75 bathrooms and a handful of formal living spaces in 6,755 square feet. A two-story foyer with a sweeping staircase opens the interior.


Main-level spaces include a formal dining room, family room, living room, center-island kitchen and breakfast nook with a wine refrigerator. Elsewhere, there’s a second-story loft and movie theater.

Upstairs, the master suite extends to a private balcony lined with tile. It takes in views of the canyon and backyard, where grass surrounds a patio, swimming pool, spa and fire pit lounge.

Under his own company, H.K. Management, Kaufman handled artists such as Aerosmith, Jimmy Buffett and Def Leppard. He later teamed with Irving Azoff to found Front Line Management, whose roster included Steely Dan and the Eagles.

He died in 2017 at 79.
