From the street, and even from behind the tall bougainvillea hedging and iron gates, the Woodland Hills, Calif., compound that Atlanta-based singer and actor Tyrese Gibson has pushed on the market at a tetch under $2.9 million, more than twice the $1.385 million he paid shortly after it was built coming up on 11 years ago, is an unremarkable, tan-colored Mediterranean-ish house that almost no one passing by would have reason to notice or look at twice.
On the music scene since the late 1990s, the “Sweet Lady” and “How You Gonna Act Like That” singer has released half a dozen records and by most online estimates sold about 3.7 million records. But he’s arguably had more success on the silver screen, where he’s appeared in five of the blockbuster “Fast & Furious” films and three of the money-minting “Transformers” films. He’ll soon be seen opposite Jared Leto in the upcoming “Spider-Man” spinoff “Morbius,” with two more “Fast & Furious” films in the coming years. More than a singer nowadays, he seems well on his way to proper movie stardom.
First spotted on the wildly popular Zillow Gone Wild Instagram, and available through “Selling Sunset” star Jason Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group, Gibson’s not-quite-half-acre parcel packs in four separate structures, including the main house, which has five bedroom suites, including a primary suite with two walk-in closets and a terrace, and a total of 5.5 bathrooms.
While there are a few extravagant moments, such as the grandiose double-height combination foyer and living room, with its even more grandiose curved staircase and curlicued wrought-iron railings, most of the main house is a run-of-the-mill albeit upscale suburban affair capable of comfortably housing a large family.
