Incubus' Brandon Boyd sells Venice home for $2,705,454

Frontman Brandon Boyd of the rock bank Incubus has sold his house in Venice for $2,705,454.

Originally a hotel and notions building when built in 1905, the property retains a storefront appearance. The 3,500-square-foot single-family home features exposed brick walls, pressed-tin ceilings, skylights, a glass-block exterior wall and a rooftop deck. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The 640-square-foot sound-proof music studio/guest quarters includes a kitchenette.

Incubus recorded its seventh studio album at the house. "If Not Now, When?" was released last year.

Boyd, who helped form the alternative rock band more than two decades ago, sings, plays guitar and is a percussionist.

He bought the property in 2005 for $2.725 million from actress Maria Bello.

Brad Wiseman of Pinnacle Estate Properties was the listing agent and Negin Dumoulin of LeMarc Investments represented the buyer, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
