Josh Groban sells his gated Malibu retreat for $3.75 million


Singer-songwriter Josh Groban has parted ways with his home in Malibu, selling the gated estate for $3.75 million in a deal finalized outside of the Multiple Listing Service.

Once listed for as much as $6.1 million, or offered for lease at $23,000 a month, the Tuscan-style house relisted in March for $4.695 million before being pulled from the market two months later. Records show that Groban bought the house more than a decade ago for $4.125 million.

Sitting on about two acres with mountain views, the 3,300-square-foot home is obscured from the street by mature trees. A lighted tennis court, a swimming pool with a raised spa, walking paths, lawns and various patios make up the grounds.


The main house, built in 1978, includes a wine cellar, a gym, a music room/studio and a game room with a wet bar. A two-story entry hall opens to a formal living room with a decorative ceiling and a wood-paneled wall.

Including a separate, two-story guesthouse, there are six bedrooms and five bathrooms. The master suite has French doors that open to the grounds.

Private keyed access to Little Dume was also conveyed in the sale.

Groban, 35, has hits that include “To Where You Are,” “February Song” and “I Believe.” He released his seventh studio album, “Stages,” last year.
