Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz seeks $2.395 million for Encino hacienda
Half a decade is plenty for Pete Wentz, who just put his Encino home of five years on the market for $2.395 million.
The house has been a hot spot for musicians over the years; Wentz bought it from R&B singer-songwriter Eric Benet for $1.965 million in 2014, records show. That was around the same time Wentz sold his old place in Studio City for $1.23 million.
Built in the ‘50s but remodeled a decade ago, the gated property sits on roughly half an acre in Amestoy Estates. There’s a palm-lined motor court in the front and a resort-like backyard with a basketball court, saltwater pool and spa under hanging lights.
Arched doorways and hardwood floors fill the single-story floor plan, which holds five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 4,091 square feet. Beamed ceilings top the living room, gourmet kitchen and master suite, and the master also adds a spa tub and sauna.
Outside, gardens and citrus trees bring a little color to the hedge-lined grounds.
Thomas Atamian of Compass and Deedee Howard of the Agency hold the listing.
Wentz, 40, is best known as the lyricist and bassist for Grammy-nominated pop-punk band Fall Out Boy, which released its seventh studio album, “Mania,” last year. In addition, he cofounded record label DCD2 Records with bandmate Patrick Stump in 2005.
