Default Lindsey Buckingham Asks $29.5 Million for Los Angeles Estate

Musician Lindsey Buckingham and his wife Kristen are listing their custom-built estate in Los Angeles’s Brentwood area for $29.5 million.

Mr. Buckingham, a longtime guitarist and singer for the band Fleetwood Mac, split with the group last year, according to numerous media reports.

The former Fleetwood Mac member shares this roughly 10,000-square-foot home with his wife Kristen, who oversaw the property’s interior design.

Sitting on more than an acre and behind double gates, the roughly 10,000-square-foot home has a large motorcourt and landscaped grounds, according to the listing. It has seven bedrooms, a 2-story tower, an office and a covered outdoor space with a fireplace and a barbecue area. On the grounds there is a large pool with a pavilion, a tennis court, a gym, a three-car garage, a guesthouse and a recording studio that doubles as a screening room.

Jeff Hyland, one of the listing agents, said his clients are selling because they have been constructing a new home nearby for the past two years, and the project is near completion. “It’s a point where the kids are off at school and they are downsizing,” Mr. Hyland said.

The Buckinghams designed and built the home about 15 years ago, buying the land for about $6.6 million in 2004, public records show. Mr. Buckingham’s wife Kristen is an interior designer and oversaw the design of the property, Mr. Hyland said.

Mr. Hyland is listing the home alongside Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.

Just as long as this has already been planned. I don't want to think Lindsey's health dictated a move. But it is true that they've had that other property for some time now.

I did read on another article they’ve been in construction on another house for2 years. With 2 of the kids in college, makes sense to downsize. I do hope he’s healing well though

wow, so odd.... I was just in LA and we drove by there and we commented that the house seemed very unlived in in some odd way compared to in past trips. That explains it. There were a few nearby homes under construction; I remembered reading they had purchased another one very close by... but if this one's for sale their new house wouldn't have been as unfinished as the ones we saw... Clearly Stevie isn't the only one with the moving every few years bug... lol

Also I remember being a little surprised reading during the lawsuit days that John now lives very nearby. (As does -- or did -- Trent Reznor)

Lindsey Buckingham seeks $29.5-million haul for Brentwood compound

Lindsey Buckingham, formerly of Fleetwood Mac, and his wife, designer Kristen Buckingham, custom built the French Normandy-style home of about 10,000 square feet. The Brentwood property is now for sale at $29.5 million. (Adam Latham)


Rock ’n’ roll icon Lindsey Buckingham and his wife, Kristen, have listed their longtime Brentwood compound at $29.5 million as they near completion on a new home in the area.

The couple purchased the double-lot property in 2004 for $6.6 million and had the estate custom built. Kristen Buckingham, who has her own design firm, handled the interiors, which blend Old World and Traditional elements with a range of modern comforts.

Fronted by a large motor court, the French Normandy-inspired mansion features a white-painted brick exterior and weeping mortar that give it a whimsical vibe. About 10,000 square feet of interior space includes a rotunda entry with a sweeping spiral staircase that opens to formal living and dining rooms.

A billiard room sits down a long hallway and connects to a wood-paneled den with a fireplace. The farmhouse-style kitchen is outfitted with professional-grade appliances.

The master suite is on the main level and has a sitting room, a fireplace, walk-in closets and a dressing room. Four additional en suite bedrooms lie upstairs.

Set on 1.3 acres of manicured grounds, the property also has a tennis court, a gym, a guest house and a screening room. Open patio spaces, a built-in barbecue, gardens and a swimming pool with a pavilion fill out the grounds.

Lindsey Buckingham, 69, gained fame as a songwriter, a lead vocalist and lead guitarist for the British American rock band Fleetwood Mac. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the group in 1998. He is not part of the band’s current lineup.

Last year, the couple sold another Brentwood home they custom built for $19 million. They have been constructing a new Brentwood home for themselves over the last two years.

Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland and Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury hold the listing.

Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham Lists Brentwood Home for $29.5 Million
The musician and his wife, interior designer Kristen Messner, built the home from the ground up 15 years ago

Lindsey Buckingham and his wife, Kristen Messner, are ready to move on from the their longtime custom-built home in Brentwood, California. Just one year after selling another house in the same luxe neighborhood, the former Fleetwood Mac guitarist and singer and Messner, an interior designer, have put their 10,000-square-foot mansion on the market for $29.5 million. The large price tag is no doubt commensurate with the amount of time, effort, and money they poured into constructing the abode in 2004, when they purchased the land for $6.6 million and built the sprawling home from the ground up.

The house sits on 1.3 acres behind a set of secure double gates, with an impressive driveway and motor court leading up to the grand front entrance. There are a total of seven bedrooms on the premises, all boasting a blend of old-world and traditional aesthetics with a range of modern comforts. The exterior of the home is French Normandy–inspired, with a white painted-brick façade that opens onto a rotunda entryway featuring a spiral staircase that twists dramatically up to the second story. Just off the front entryway is a formal living room with exposed beam ceilings, an exquisite chandelier hanging above the space, and a stately fireplace with a molded mantel off to one side. The formal dining room features not one, but two similarly impressive chandeliers, as well as a mural that covers all four walls.

Elsewhere on the first floor is an impressive wood-paneled study with built-in shelves and cabinets ideal for displaying books, awards, and other memorabilia. A set of heavy wooden double doors connects to a billiard room beyond that, featuring handsome striped wallpaper. The multiroom master suite is unusually located on the main floor as well, and includes its own sitting room, fireplace, walk-in closets, and a dressing room. Additional en suite bedrooms are located on the second floor.

In addition to the impressively manicured grounds, the property also boasts a tennis court, a guesthouse, a gym, and a screening room that doubles as a recording studio. There is also a swimming pool with adjacent pavilion, numerous open patio spaces, and a built-in barbecue for entertaining.

Last year, the couple sold another custom-built Brentwood home for $19 million. And their impetus to put this $29.5 million mansion on the market is, in fact, because they’re almost done with yet another Brentwood home they’ve been constructing over the last two years.

A fresh start, maybe? Yes, John lives near them. He probably doesn't want to see any of those ugly faces anymore!

It might be a good sign that he’s healthy enough to move

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.

I doubt he'd be humping a piano down a flight of stairs, before OR after the heart attack!

I guess because moving was Top 3 most traumatic events of my life, I think of it as inherently stressful.

But maybe Kristen takes care of all that.

....

Still, doesn't he have a recording studio in his current home?

Will he at the new home?

Well it is, BUT, I've never had the kind of money to pay people to do all that sh*t for you, so I'm sure it's much easier doing it that way.


It sounds like the new place was designed way before his heart attack, so I'd bet anything that it does.

This made me LOL--thank you. And while I wholeheartedly agree, I did see a pic on Kristen's IG a while back of Lindsey picking up dog poop--so while I am sure The Buckingham's have some help, I think Lindsey is far more self sufficient than the rest of his former bandmates.
