Grammy-winning a cappella group Pentatonix has come along way over the past decade. Since the band won the third season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” in 2011, they’ve released multiple EPs and full-length albums, done tribute performances on several award shows, and went viral after their collab with Dolly Parton on “Jolene” was shown on “The Voice.” (That collab also won Pentatonix their third Grammy trophy.)
Pentatonix’s beatboxer Kevin Olusola married his longtime love Leigh Weissman in a two-day extravaganza just over a year ago, and now the devout Christian — he was born in Pasadena to Nigerian immigrants but grew up in Kentucky — has found residential bliss in the form of a $2.8 million home in Westlake Village, a family-friendly suburban neighborhood about an hour northwest of Downtown Los Angeles.
Built in 1979 but majorly remodeled in 2018, Olusola’s new digs sit atop a quiet ridgeline cul-de-sac, with panoramic views over the surrounding hills and hiking trails. A brick walkway leads past the attached three-car garage to the double front doors, which swing into a foyer with cream-colored hardwood floors. Just beyond the adjoining great room are LaCantina foldaway doors that allow for seamless indoor/outdoor living and provide sensational views of the rolling hills.
Back inside, the enormous great room encompasses a family/living area with a linear fireplace and built-in shelving. The attached kitchen — described as a “gourmet chef’s fantasy kitchen” in the listing — includes a pricey Ann Sacks tile backsplash, top-of-the-line SubZero and Wolf appliances, and Caesarstone countertops. A butler’s pantry connects to the formal dining room, which goes for a saucily contemporary look with its icicle-style chandelier, fabric walls, and a white stone fireplace. A living room offers a stylish bar, and also on the main level are a guest bedroom suite, mud room, and laundry area.
There are four more bedrooms upstairs, including a spacious master with its own fireplace and sitting area, plus an attached bath with dual vanities and glassy steam shower. A large balcony just off the main landing has long and wide sunset views over the unmolested surrounding hills.
Out back, there’s a wee patch of lawn, and a brick-and-concrete patio surround a irregularly-shaped, hexadecagonal pool and its adjoining spa. Other at-home amenities include coveted epoxy garage flooring, a Sonos audiovisual system, Lutron motorized window shades, and recessed LED lighting throughout.
Olusola, 32, still owns his L.A. bachelor pad — a three-bedroom townhome in a swank gated complex in the gentrifying neighborhood of Hawthorne. Acquired for about $850,000 in 2016, that place is currently on the market with a $999,000 ask and is already in escrow and looking for backup offers, per the listing.
Jennifer Sommers of Keller Williams held the listing; Shlomo Seidenfeld of Nourmand & Associates repped Olusola.
