Tyrese Gibson, an actor and singer based in Atlanta, is selling the Woodland Hills, California, compound for just under $2.9 million, which is more than twice the $1.385 million he paid for it not too long after it was constructed 11 years ago. The house is a tan-colored, Mediterranean-style home that is barely noticeable to passersby.
Online estimates indicate that the singer of “Sweet Lady” and “How You Gonna Act Like That” has sold 3.7 million records and recorded six albums since the late 1990s. He has enjoyed greater success as the lead in three “Transformers” movies and five “Fast & Furious” movies. He will co-star with Jared Leto in the “Spider-Man” spinoff “Morbius” and two additional “Fast & Furious” movies. He’s not simply a singer anymore; he’s a movie star.
The not-quite-half-acre lot in Gibson is offered by “Selling Sunset” star Jason Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group and features four structures. The main house has five bedroom suites, including a primary suite with two walk-in closets and a terrace, and 5.5 bathrooms. The property was first seen on Zillow Gone Wild.
The main home is a typical upmarket suburban affair that can easily accommodate a large family, while there are a few extravagant moments, such the enormous double-height combination entrance and living room with its even grander curved staircase and curlicued wrought-iron railings.
The large living area features a baby grand piano, a ton of white slipcovered furniture, and a sleek black fireplace.
The home theater features a huge, luxurious kitchen that extends to a dining area and family room, along with brown microsuede chairs.
Beige tiles and cabinets made of medium-brown wood are seen in most bathrooms, including the master. But the mansion has another carnival at the back.
Overlooking a fire pit with a circular built-in bench adorned with red, white, and blue patriotic cushions is a large yellow Transformer. (A like statue was located in the foyer and front yard of Gibson’s Atlanta estate.)
With a built-in grilling station and bar with cherry-red counters, a half-bath, and an entire Benihana-style Teppanyaki setup behind shoji screens, the poolside pavilion is Asian-inspired.
