A Los Feliz home owned by singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder has sold for $2,407,000.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom Mission-style house of 4,511 square feet was built in 1928. A tiki room on the bottom level of the two-story home leads to a swimming pool with a large yard, gated parking and a one-bedroom guesthouse. There are hardwood floors, a family room fireplace and city light views. Arched windows look out onto the less-than-half-acre of grounds.
The record producer, instrumentalist and winner of 22 Grammy awards performed in January at a concert in Washington, D.C., the weekend before President Obama's inauguration and earlier this month at Michael Jackson's memorial service at Staples Center.
Wonder, 59, received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in February. Among his early Motown hits were "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" (1970), "Superstition" (1972) and "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" (1973). He appeared on "American Idol" in 2006 and this year on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
Public records show Wonder is the owner of about a dozen residential and commercial properties in the Los Angeles area.
The listing agent was Melody A. McCully of Universal Realty, according to the Multiple Listing Service. The buyer was represented by Dorothy Carter and Michael Orland, both of Keller Williams Realty, Los Feliz.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
