A home sale to sing about in Encino

R&B singer-songwriter Tamar Braxton-Herbert and her husband, music executive Vincent Herbert, have sold their Encino home for $2.65 million.

The custom-built house, constructed in 2007, is a cross between a Spanish hacienda and a Tuscan villa. Nearly 8,000 square feet of living space includes a sweeping staircase, projection room, bar, wine cellar, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The more than a third acre of grounds feature a built-in stone barbecue, patios, lawn, a cabana and a pool and spa with two waterfalls. A pool view pop-up television screen rotates 360 degrees.

Public records show the property was purchased in 2009 for $2.6 million.

Braxton-Herbert, 34, has starred since last year on “Braxton Family Values.” She is a founding member of the girl-group the Braxtons, which included her older sister, the Grammy-winning Toni Braxton.
