Nashville-based English-American rocker Peter Frampton — he became a naturalized U.S. citizen shortly after 9-1,1 specifically so that he could vote – now has his Los Angeles pied- à -terre up for grabs at $829,500, a substantial chunk below the not quite $880,000 he originally sought when the clean-lined Studio City condo first popped up for sale last summer. The “Do You Feel Like We Do” singer, who picked up the then brand-new condo in 2012 for $600,000, reportedly used the fairly humble (if not exactly inexpensive) three-bedroom and 2.5-bath spread as a crash pad when he visited and performed in Los Angeles.
Marketing materials make no secret the condo, which sits on the third floor of the unpretentious Citron Modern Living complex, is celebrity owned, and the not-quite 1,700-square-foot designer-done unit is offered with a smattering of Frampton’s custom furnishings — custom curtains, several glass and metal bookshelves and a comfortably cushioned sectional sofa among the items.
Glass sliders alongside a TV-surmounted stainless-steel-trimmed gas fireplace lead to a small covered balcony with open views over the surrounding rooftops, and a framed poster “Almost Famous” hangs in the living/dining room as an eye-winking nod to Frampton’s small role in the 2000 movie. Open to the combo living/dining room, the kitchen’s dark wood cabinets are offset by light-colored solid surface counter tops and a shimmering stainless steel back splash.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are clear of personal effects and include a homeowner’s bedroom that comprises a nice-sized walk-in closet and a reasonably spacious modern bathroom.
Besides its convenient location with easy access to myriad shopping and dining options in Studio City, Toluca Lake and Hollywood, the four-story 18-unit complex, built in 2012, offers residents a landscaped entrance and courtyard entry, secured parking, a fitness room, a business center and a faux-grassed communal roof terrace.
Best known as a solo artist, Frampton also played in the 1970s bands Humble Pie and the Herd. His most recent album, “All Blues,” was released in 2019 — and spent 12 weeks on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums Chart, and last year the 70-year-old classic rocker published a memoir, “Do You Feel Like I Do?”, co-written with music journalist Alan Light.
