Even legendary Texan Don Henley has to get into a real estate bidding war when a home is so perfect it can’t be passed up. The founding member of The Eagles recently purchased a West Hollywood abode for $2.212 million, well over the asking price of $1.85 million. Luckily, we can take a peek inside through the listing on EXP Realty to see what intrigued Henley about the 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,827 square foot property.
Built in 1920, this Spanish bungalow has plenty of updates (including the comforts of central air) to make it feel fresh and new with the warmth of its history factored in. The living room is perfectly cozy with white walls creating a clean look.
Subtle style choices like French doors and the scalloped-shaped entryway into the dining room break up the starkness of the floor to ceiling white walls. Natural sunlight bathes the home thanks to large windows and the sunny Los Angeles weather.
You’ll want to keep things neat and tidy in this flawless kitchen and guest bath.
The master bedroom has modern built-in closets with opaque glass panels and a bathroom featuring a freestanding tub and a double sink.
An additional family room opens up to the outdoors where guests can relax on the private patio.
This Hollywood property might serve as a sort of personal Hotel California for friends and family to stay in since Grammy-winning Henley already has two large American homes. His primary residence, a 16,000 square-foot mansion in Texas, sits on a 3.6 acre compound in the Bluffview neighborhood in Dallas right next to Love Field airport. Henley and his wife Sharon can quickly hop on a plane and get to their other 40-acre property perched above Malibu’s Point Dume.
Still living the rock star life, Don Henley is currently on tour with The Eagles on their first lengthy North American tour since the death of Glenn Frey. Henley is also known for his work as a singer-songwriter solo artist with five solo albums including 2015’s Cass County recorded in Dallas and Nashville.
