Film composer John Debney falls for a Toluca Lake home on the links

Film composer John Debney has orchestrated a deal in Toluca Lake, paying $4.65 million for a golf course estate.

John Debney, the television and film composer whose credits include “The Passion of the Christ” and “The Jungle Book,” has paid $4.65 million for a Toluca Lake home on a golf course, records show.

Set on the 12th fairway of Lakeside Golf Club, the cul-de-sac estate holds a six-bedroom farmhouse, a detached guesthouse and a swimming pool. The main home is a light-filled mixture of vaulted ceilings, wide-plank floors and pocketing doors.

In 5,400 square feet of living space are six bedrooms and six bathrooms, including two master suites. One offers farmhouse doors and a bathroom with herringbone floors, and the other sits under high vaulted ceilings with skylights and a balcony.


Wood ceilings hang over the kitchen, family room and wine closet. Elsewhere, there’s a long dining room and a living room with a white-painted brick fireplace.

The two homes, separated by a covered dining area, form an L-shape around the brick-lined swimming pool out back. Taking in golf course views, the landscaped space also has a patio and wet bar.

Dennis Chernov of Keller Williams Realty held the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Bradley Gilboe of Keller Williams WMC represented the buyer.

Debney, 62, received an Academy Award nomination for scoring 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ.” More recently, his credits include “Paper Towns,” “The Greatest Showman” and “Beirut” as well as the Fox sitcom “The Orville.”
