Shaun White lands composer Marc Shaiman’s Laurel Canyon home and studio
Extreme sports star and musician Shaun White has purchased the Hollywood Hills home and studio of award-winning composer and lyricist Marc Shaiman for $1.6 million.
Set on a leafy lot in Laurel Canyon, the 1920s bungalow has a cozy vibe with walls of built-ins, white-painted ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. French doors and picture windows take in hillside and canyon views.
The approximately 1,200 square feet of colorful interior includes a vaulted-ceiling living room, a den, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. A dining nook with built-in bench seating sits off the kitchen area.
Across the grounds is the studio, which has been acoustically treated. The 1,334-square-foot structure holds a kitchenette, an office/bedroom and a bathroom.
Sitting areas, mature trees and a koi pond complete the grounds.
The two-house compound originally listed for sale in May with an adjacent property owned by Shaiman for $3.5 million. The additional parcel, which contained a three-bedroom home designed by Juan Felipe Goldstein, sold separately in November for $1.4 million, records show.
Jordan Rubinstein and Jan Alexander of Century Park Realty were the listing agents.
The 31-year-old White is an accomplished snowboarder and skateboarder. He has won gold medals for snowboarding (at the Winter Olympics) and skateboarding (at the X Games).
He is a guitarist in the band Bad Things.
Shaiman, 57, has been nominated for five Academy Awards for his film work, which includes “Sleepless in Seattle” (1993) and “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut” (1999). He co-wrote the lyrics for the Broadway musical “Hairspray,” earning a Tony Award for his efforts. The subsequent cast recording for “Hairspray” won him a Grammy.
