Australian singer-songwriter Sia has added to her real estate portfolio with the purchase of a Toluca Lake compound for $5.15 million.
There’s live-work potential here with both a main house and a 4,500-square-foot guesthouse that had been in use as a recording studio. The seller was a trust for engineer Henry W. Sanicola Jr. and his wife, Jacqueline, who once owned O’Henry Sound Studios in Burbank.
The 1.3-acre gated property has a Traditional-style main house and a large motor court.
The total 9,500 square feet of living space includes a living room, a library/study, an immense family room off the kitchen, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a powder room.
French doors open to a flagstone-surrounded swimming pool, an outdoor fireplace and mature landscaping.
Sia, 39, last year released the album “1000 Forms of Fear,” which included the hit “Big Girls Cry.” She is working on her next album.
Earlier this year she bought a Mediterranean Revival villa in Los Feliz for $4.7 million and four months later listed the distinctive A.F. Leicht-designed house for $4.995 million.
