Mikkel Eriksen, one of the two hitmakers behind the production and songwriting duo Stargate, is parting ways with his custom-designed equestrian estate.
Set in Pacific Palisades’ highly sought-after Sullivan Canyon neighborhood in Los Angeles, the music producer’s home oozes style and comfort — and looks like it’s been completely revamped prior to listing.
In fact, Eriksen has partnered with renowned Montalba Architects (the visionaries behind Nobu Hotels and Soho House) to breathe new life into the 1981-built home before bringing it to market. Now, it’s being offered for sale at $14,950,000 with Compass’ Cindy Ambuehl holding the listing.
If Eriksen’s name doesn’t sound all too familiar, the songs produced by Stargate over the years likely will.
Stargate, comprised of Mikkel Eriksen and Tor E. Hermanson, have produced or written songs for some of the biggest music artists in the world including Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Sam Smith, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, Janet Jackson, Ne-Yo, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Whitney Houston, Chris Brown, Nas, and others.
Some of their biggest hits include Beyoncé’s Irreplaceable, Rihanna’s Rude Boy, and Katy Perry’s 2010 hit, Fireworks. And if that leaves you wondering how much house you can buy after making it big in the music industry, Mikkel Eriksen’s impressive equestrian estate might just give you an idea.
“Old Oak is a totally unique experience,” says listing agent Cindy Ambuehl. “There are few properties on huge lots with fully lit tennis courts. There are few properties with a complete wellness center with infrared sauna and cold plunge. There are few properties with an 8th deep large pool and spa. There are very few properties with character using only high end finishes and fixtures. Few homes have the perfect floor plan and abundance of light. There are very few properties that allow you to keep horses in your own backyard. No other property has all of the above.”
The Stargate producer’s home offers 5,127 square feet of bright, elegantly appointed living space, with 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and 2 half baths.
Its top-to-bottom renovation added custom millwork, floor-to-ceiling doors, vaulted ceilings, and white oak floors throughout the light-filled home.
The gourmet kitchen is flooded with natural light and is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a large island, and direct access to all communal spaces.
But it’s the open floor plan living area that steals the show, with its large living room, entertainers bar, formal dining, family room, and secondary dining all opening to the outdoors, creating a perfect space for hosting large gatherings.
The primary suite is a luxurious retreat, complete with a dual-sided fireplace, a private office, and a spa-like bathroom that opens to an outdoor wellness retreat.
Outdoor amenities include a professionally lit tennis court with a basketball hoop, an 8-foot deep pebble pool, and a spa. The home’s state-of-the-art wellness facility features a six-person infrared sauna, premium cold plunge, tranquil meditation platform, and a serene zen pod.
Per the listing, the property includes two horse stalls, perfect for keeping your equine friends close to home.
The yard is equipped with an outdoor fireplace, built-in barbecue, pool and spa, and a vast koi pond providing a peaceful escape from busy city life. Situated on a 3/4 acre lot, this modern ranch masterpiece offers luxury and comfort in equal measure.
