Grammy winner, Fleetwood Mac legendary guitarist/singer, producer and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame member, Lindsey Buckingham and his wife Kristen recently dropped $5.8 million on a 2,958 square foot mansion, which lies just over one mile away from his other one, almost three times as big. Situated on the north side of Sunset Blvd., it features five bedrooms and three bathrooms (in a rather bad shape) which the Buckinghams, rumour has it, intend to restore to its 1920s pride.
Just shy of an acre, the house boasts a classic swimming pool and a number of outdoor rooms bordered by hedges and underbush, low red brick walls and rose bushes. In order to get to the main house, one has to drive along a slightly winding driveway passing under a porte-cochère at the side of the building and get into a small-sized motor court at the back of the house where there is a detached two-car garage.
Built in 2007, the couple’s current luxury residence sits on 1.16 acres and is made up of six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a swimming pool and a tennis court. Could the rock-and-roll veteran be planning to put it up for sale after he has restored the newly acquired smaller residence? We’ll just have to wait and see, I guess.
