Beverly Hills house has been owned by singer-songwriter Bobby Darin and the voice actor Noel Blanc subsequently sold for $ 8.5 million.
The Spanish style compound, which has a separate guest house and a superb recording studio, was owned by the coroner “Beyond the Sea” during the 1960s. Blanc, who knows Looney Tunes characters as Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig, sold the property in the late 1990s after nearly thirty years of ownership.
The current owner – a corporate entity connected to guitarist Bice Takahiro “Tak” Matsumoto – bought the property in 2011 for about $ 3.64 million, records show.
The chef was built from the two story house, built in the 1920s and refurbished, with hardwood floors, recessed lighting and an updated kitchen. The living room, which includes a fireplace, opens to the family room. The five bedrooms and six bathrooms include an extensive master suite with a separate office, bar and two private terraces.
Outside, the landscaped grounds have a dining patio and swimming pool with a spa and waterfall feature. The recording studio sits – which uses Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Carlos Santana and Ozzy Osbourne, among others – in the back.
Matsumoto, 58, was the Japanese duo-rock wasz in the late 1980s with singer Koshi Inaba. He won a Grammy Award for the best pop-up album in 2010 for his collaboration with Larry Carlton on “Take Your Pick.”
