Weezer’s Brian Bell buys Westwood house
It may sound like an odd fit, but guitarist Brian Bell of the alt rock band Weezer has purchased a Spanish-style house in a sedate Westwood neighborhood for $1.6 million.
The single-story 1920s home retains such period details as arched doorways throughout. The living room has cathedral ceilings, oversized exposed wood beams, a tile-framed fireplace and French doors opening to a porch and patio. There are four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms in 3,000 square feet of living space.
Bell, 41, who is also a songwriter and singer, joined the band in 1993. He also performs with two others groups, Space Twins and the Relationship. Weezer released its eighth studio album, “Hurley,” this month. (The character from the TV series “Lost” graces the cover.) “Raditude” was released last year.
Jim Bremner of Gibson International represented the seller, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Nathaniel Cole of Coldwell Banker Coastal Alliance represented Bell.
