Musician Matt Hales of Aqualung fame and his wife, actress Kim Oliver, have sold their single-story home in Pasadena for roughly $1.62 million. That’s around $200,000 shy of their original asking price, records show.
Built in 1964, the house drips with Midcentury Modern style. Period chandeliers and a built-in stone planter draw the eye in the foyer, and decorative wall screens touch up the living spaces.
In 3,174 square feet, there are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a paneled dining room and an eat-in kitchen. Corner fireplaces encased in stone anchor the living and family rooms.
The master suite holds a sunken tub and opens to a private garden. Elsewhere on the nearly half-acre grounds are a covered patio, a walkway with rounded stone steps and a landscaped yard.
An outdoor lounge takes in mountain views, and part of the detached three-car garage has been converted into a studio.
Josette Wolf of Pacific Union International held the listing. Karen Nielsen, also with Pacific Union, represented the buyer. The exact sale price was $1.6195 million.
Thanks to his popular debut single “Strange and Beautiful (I’ll Put a Spell on You),” Hales went on to record six studio albums as Aqualung. As a producer and songwriter, he boasts collaborations with artists such as Jason Mraz, Disclosure and Bat for Lashes.
