In the tranquil, upscale Los Angeles neighborhood of Bel Air Ridge, a 4-bedroom home recently landed on the market.

And beyond its meticulously renovated interiors, prime location, and generous square footage, what caught our eye is the property’s history. More specifically, its famous past owner: none other than Earth, Wind, and Fire founder and vocalist Maurice White called the place home for well over 40 years.

The house first traded hands a couple of years after Maurice’s passing in 2016. But for over four decades, the beats of Earth, Wind, and Fire echoed through the halls of this now-for-sale home, where Maurice White lived and created some of his most famous tunes.

Ready to pass the torch, this musical landmark is now listed for $3,985,000 with Jill Epstein of Nourmand & Associates and Daniel R. Banchick & Amy Dantzler with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California Properties.

Home to a music legend for over 40 years

For those of you too young to remember, Maurice White was the founder and leader of Earth, Wind & Fire, one of the most iconic bands of the 1970s and 1980s. Known for blending jazz, R&B, soul, and funk, the band created a sound that was both unique and universally appealing.

Maurice White was not only a talented vocalist and songwriter but also a skilled producer and arranger. He was instrumental in shaping the band’s dynamic performances and hit songs like September, Boogie Wonderland, and Let’s Groove. His work earned the band multiple Grammy Awards and a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

But Maurice White’s influence extends beyond music; he’s remembered as an innovator who brought joy and inspiration to countless fans.

His former Tudor-style home was built in 1978

Located at 10122 Baywood Court in the esteemed Bel Air Ridge community, White’s longtime home sits on a tranquil cul-de-sac overlooking the undeveloped natural beauty of Beverly Glen Park Reserve.

Dating back to 1987, the house perfectly mixes old-world Tudor charm with modern style.

With well over 4,000 square feet of living space, the Bel Air Ridge house comes with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, with a primary suite that steals the show with its dual-sided fireplace, large seating area, and sizeable terrace with panoramic views.

And an open floorplan

The bright and open living spaces consist of an elegant living room and a beautifully appointed chef’s kitchen (with top-end appliances, ample counter spaces, and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry).

Next to the kitchen we find the wet bar and dining area, which open to the private backyard.

Recently remodelled

It’s worth noting that the house likely looked quite different when the legendary musician lived here. The property has been heavily updated in recent years, with modern conveniences and contemporary elegance adding to its Tudor-style architectural heritage.

Notable amenities include an outdoor kitchen

Beyond the ones we’ve mentioned above (chef’s kitchen, generously sized primary suite, and sizable sun terrace with panoramic canyon, city, and ocean views), the home has a few other standout features like a private backyard and an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill and custom marble cooking station.

But the future owners of 10122 Baywood Court are not limited to the house’s own amenities.

They get to enjoy all the perks that come with living in the upscale Bel Air Ridge community, whose homeowners association provides ample amenities and leisure activities to its residents.

This includes tennis courts, pickle ball, racquetball, basketball, two heated pools, a state-of-the-art gym, a distinguished clubhouse, 24/7 security patrol, and even a private hilltop park.
