The Woodland Hills, Calif., compound that Atlanta-based singer and actor Tyrese Gibson has listed at a tetch under $2.9 mιllιon, more than twice the $1.385 mιllιon he paid shortly after it was built 11 years ago, is an unremarkable, tan-colored Mediterranean-ish house that almost no one passing by would notice or look at twice.
Since the late 1990s, the “Sweet Lady” and “How You Gonna Act Like That” singer has released six albums and sold 3.7 mιllιon records, according to online estimates. He’s starred in five “Fast & Furious” films and three “Transformers” films, where he’s had more success. He will star in the “Spider-Man” spinoff “Morbius” with Jared Leto and two more “Fast & Furious” flicks. He’s becoming a movie star, not just a singer.
Gibson’s not-quite-half-acre parcel, first spotted on Zillow Gone Wild and available through “Selling Sunset” star Jason Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group, has four structures, including the main house, which has five bedroom suites, including a primary suite with two walk-in closets and a terrace, and 5.5 bathrooms.
While there are a few extravagant moments, such as the grandiose double-height combination foyer and living room with its even grander curved staircase and curlicued wrought-iron railings, most of the main house is a typical upscale suburban affair that can comfortably house a large family.
The cavernous living room has a sleek black fireplace and a lot of white slipcovered furniture and a baby grand piano.
The home cinema has brown microsuede chairs and a large, high-end kitchen that opens to a dining area and family room.
Most bathrooms, including the master, have medium-brown wood cabinetry and beige tiles. However, the back of the house is another carnival.
A big yellow Transformer rules a fire pit surrounded by a circular built-in bench with patriotic red, white, and blue cushions. (A similar monument stood in Gibson’s Atlanta mansion’s front yard and foyer.)
An Asian-inspired poolside pavilion has an outdoor kitchen, a built-in grilling station and bar with cherry-red countertops, a half-bath, and a full Benihana-style Teppanyaki setup behind shoji screens.
