Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie has shelled out $6.775 million for a four-bedroom, Los Angeles-area home, Mansion Global has learned.
The Brentwood, California, home was on the market for less than four months before the long-term owners sealed the deal last week with the musician who put the “Mac” in Fleetwood Mac, according to property records, which Trulia first reported.
The sellers bought the home in 1986, so long ago that the price tag isn’t listed in online records—though it was appraised at the time for around $800,000, usually a snapshot of the market price and an indication they made a tidy profit three decades later.
The purchase indicates Mr. McVie, 71, might be making a move back to the California. He’s spent the past three years living in Hawaii with his family, according to Fleetwood Mac’s official website.
His new digs, designed by renowned architect Gus Duffy, were built in 1940. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home was among a number of French country estates the architect built in the Los Angeles suburbs.
Architectural details include intricately carved doors, imported wood, limestone fireplace mantels and bedrooms with Venetian plaster walls, according to the listing with agent Aram Afshar of Quintessentially Estates at Coldwell Banker.
“The house was meticulously detailed, and the level of interior design made it irreplaceable in regards to the antique finishes,” in addition to superb landscaping, Mr. Afshar said.
Outside, French doors lead to a private garden with brooks, a saltwater pool, a spa and a terrace fit for entertaining, according to the listing.
An agent for Mr. McVie could not immediately be reached for comment.
