Maroon 5's Mickey Madden Lists Los Feliz Mid-Century Modern for $3M
Known as the Moore House, the glassy modern near Griffith Park was built by celebrated Case Study architect Craig Ellwood in 1965.
Maroon 5's Mickey Madden wants less of the Moore.
The 36-year-old bassist has just put his longtime residence, known as the Moore House, on the market with a $2.995 million pricetag. According to public records, Madden purchased the property in 2005 for $2 million.
Located on a narrow, winding road in the hills above Los Feliz Boulevard, the post and beam was designed in 1964 by architect Craig Ellwood, who also designed three of the homes in Arts & Architecture's influential Case Study House program. "The Moore House is an especially important example of Ellwood's work," says John Aaroe Group agent Aaron Kirman, who has the listing. The home has been published in several architectural guidebooks.
Measuring a compact 1,701 square feet, the rectangular residence features a central, open living/dining area bookended on one end by the master bedroom and bath and on the other by a galley-style kitchen, two small bedrooms and a second bath.
Sliding glass doors run the length of the home on both sides, in keeping with the Modernist philosophy of blending indoor and outdoor living. The one-third-acre property further encourages outdoor living with a variety of al fresco dining patios, water features and seating areas scattered throughout its park-like grounds.
