As she’s shot from impoverished obscurity to social media phenom to international fame and fortune, genre bending indie pop singer Ashley Frangipane, more commonly known around the globe as Halsey, and named to Time magazine’s 2020 list of 100 most influential people in the world, has steadily upgraded her residential circumstances in increasingly suburban neighborhoods across Los Angeles.
About four years ago, on the heels of her certified two-times Platinum breakout album “Badlands,” the then just 22 year old singer picked up an ultra-contemporary hillside home in L.A.’s historic Beachwood Canyon that she unloaded about a year ago at $2.375 million, a modest profit on the $2.23 million she paid.
Then, about two years ago, a full year before she sold her Beachwood Canyon starter house, the activist-minded “Without Me” singer set her real estate sites toward the San Fernando Valley where she shelled out $2.4 million for an encyclopedically restored and delicately updated midcentury pavilion tucked into the affluent suburban foothills of L.A’s Sherman Oaks community.
Now, just a few months after she plunked down more than $10 million for Liam Payne’s sprawling compound in even-more-far-flung Calabasas, and announced— via social media, of course — that she’s fixing to have a baby with her screenwriter boyfriend Alev Aydin, her pristine midcentury home is back up for sale at just under $2.8 million.
Listings held by Josh Myler at The Agency describe the secluded, just-over-2,400-square-foot spread as a “double gated celebrity compound” designed by celebrated midcentury architect Richard Dorman. Completed in 1959, and cleared of the singer’s personal belongings, the three-to-four-bedroom and 2.5-bath post-and-beam-built home is squirreled away down a long, easily missed private drive on almost half an acre that scenically nestles into a wooded hillside.
