Moby’s biographical description continues to grow increasingly unwieldy, as the singer-songwriter, DJ, restauranteur, and author now looks to be establishing himself as a flipper of houses.
After pocketing $6 million in the sale of the famed Wolfslair castle, the multi-hyphenate picked up a pair of properties in the section of Griffith Park known as Fern Dell and/or the Oaks, one of which he has just returned to market following a two-year revamp.
Built in 1926, the English Traditional contains five bedrooms and seven baths within its 4,644 square feet beds. Period details include hardwood floors, three fireplaces with elaborate moldings, dramatic groin vault ceilings, wainscoting, and French doors.
Per the listing, the lower level is accessed by a “secret speakeasy entrance,” and contains an office, guest suite, and full bath with steam room. Other notable features include built-in seating and shelves, a yoga studio, an outdoor living room, and a flagstone-surrounded heated pool and spa. The home sits on a 9,694-square-foot corner lot.
Purchased in 2016 for $3.4 million, it’s now listed with an asking price of $4.495 million.
