Reggae musician Ziggy Marley, son of Bob Marley, is adding to his real estate portfolio.

The “Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers” front man, who also owns a Mediterranean mansion in Beverly Hills, has bought a spacious Spanish-style estate in Toluca Lake through a trust for $5.55 million.

The home was listed last January for $6.195 million, records show.

Set on half an acre next to the Lakeside Golf Club, the home opens to a two-story rotunda set beneath a dome ceiling. The house was designed by noted Montecito architect Bob Easton and features wood plank and stone floors, vaulted ceilings and six fireplaces.


Roughly 9,300 square feet of living space includes a formal living room, double-island chef’s kitchen, library, screening room and wine cellar. The master suite holds two fireplaces and opens to an outdoor veranda. In total, there are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

French doors lead to the expansive backyard, which contains a covered loggia, a meditation garden, an outdoor kitchen and a swimming pool and spa. A lawn and a sports court fill out the rear of the property. Off the entrance is a courtyard with a fountain.

Records show the house last changed hands for $6 million in 2007.


Scott and Lisa Sorrentino of Rodeo Realty were the listing agents. Jefferson Hendrick of Keller Williams Realty represented the buyer.

In addition to his work with the Melody Makers, Marley, 49, has released six solo albums and four live albums. His hits include “Beach in Hawaii,” “Love Is My Religion” and “True to Myself.”
