Phil Harvey, the creative director, manager and fifth member of the rock group Coldplay, has put his home in Brentwood on the market for $6.795 million.

The East Coast-inspired Traditional, built in 2014, has curb appeal with white trim, clapboard siding and a covered porch supported by thick square pillars.

Within the 5,898-square-foot two-story are three fireplaces, formal living and dining rooms, a family room and a center-island kitchen. Walls of built-ins fill opposite walls in the office/den, which has a garden view. There’s also a wine and tasting room.


A total of five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms include a multi-room master suite with a checkerboard-tiled bathroom.

Pocketing glass doors open to the rear, where a large covered patio has space for dining and entertaining. Lawn, mature landscaping and a swimming pool with a spa fill out the more than quarter-acre lot.

Harvey, 42, met Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in school in the 1990s and later dropped out of college to manage the band full time. Despite relinquishing the official title of Coldplay’s manager in the early 2000s, he still contributes to the group as its creative director and honorary fifth member.

He bought the house five years ago for $5.975 million, records show.
