After seven years of ownership, music industry stalwart Caron Veazey has put her revamped 1950s home in the Nichols Canyon area of Hollywood Hills up for sale.
The founder and CEO of boutique management and consulting agency Something in Common — best known for managing the career of “Happy” crooner Pharrell Williams from 2010-2019 — is asking nearly $3.5 million for the midcentury modern digs she and husband Lou Robinson picked up for $2.2 million seven years ago, back in summer 2015.
Originally built in 1957 and crafted by modernist architect Edward Fickett, the couple gave the premises an extensive renovation during their tenure in collaboration with architects Alexander Gorlin and Dan Brunn, as seen in a 2018 issue of “Architectural Digest.”
Nestled on a hillside parcel of less than a quarter-acre, the low-slung white stucco and wood-paneled structure is described in the listing as a “piece of architectural history.” Three bedrooms and three baths can be found in just over 2,000 square feet of single-level living space, all of it boasting oak floors, post-and-beam ceilings, skylights and clerestory windows.
A glassy front door trimmed in bright yellow opens into the entry hall, which flows into a living room highlighted by the original fireplace sporting a floating hearth and floor-to-ceiling glass doors spilling out to a spacious backyard patio. An adjacent dining area connects to a galley-style kitchen outfitted with gray quartz countertops, an eat-in peninsula and high-end Bosch appliances.
Sequestered in a wing by themselves are three bedrooms, including a large master suite with sliders leading outside, plus a bath equipped with a glass-encased shower; and outdoors, the fenced and hedged backyard comes complete with a pool and raised spa, along with plenty of spots ideal for al fresco dining and lounging. There’s also an attached garage that’s been converted into an exercise space and lots of room for parking out front.
