The Four Seasons frontman Frankie Valli couldn’t take his eyes off of this California spec home in the San Fernando Valley—snapping up the house outside of Los Angeles for $4.3 million, Mansion Global has learned.
Mr. Valli, 83, closed on the newly built six-bedroom home on Monday, listing records show. Born and bred in Newark, New Jersey, the 1960s icon who still performs nightly and has more than 100 million record sales under his belt, has lived in Los Angeles for years.

He bought his new digs from developers who paid $1.6 million for the property in 2014 and built up a 6,700-square-foot white, traditional-style house on about one-third of an acre, property records show. The home has an office, a spacious loft, media room and oversized family room, according to the listing with Dennis Chernov of Keller Williams Realty. Trulia first reported the sale.
The home has seven bathrooms, a gated entry with a circular driveway and double front door. The modern interior includes built-in shelving, coffered ceilings and hardwood floors throughout.
Outside, Mr. Valli has his pick of lounge spaces. He can relax in his new pool and spa or warm up by an outdoor fireplace. There’s also a covered patio off the back of the main house and a pergola for dining al fresco.
The crooner is known for timeless hits like “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” and “Bye, Bye Baby (Baby Goodbye).” His life and the story of the Four Seasons is the basis for the Tony-winning Broadway musical “Jersey Boys.”
A publicist for Mr. Valli did not return a request for comment. Susan Roth of Tele Properties was the buyer’s agent; she declined to comment for this story.
