A stunning 1934-built mansion located in the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz, California has hit the market, and it’s a doozy for any aspiring or established musician

The home, located at 3892 Franklin Avenue, is owned by acclaimed drummer Joey Waronker, whose body of work includes collaborations with Roger Waters, Beck, Thom Yorke, and R.E.M.

The fabulous home is the epitome of Spanish boho chic, mixing modern amenities with a cozy, intimate and highly creative flair. It boasts a stylish and artistic vibe inside and out, and features 2,675 square feet of living space.

It’s no wonder that the house comes with its own state-of-the-art recording studio, given that current owner Joey Waronker is an established and acclaimed musician and producer.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Waronker is best known for his work as a regular session musician with Beck and R.E.M. 

Throughout his career, Waronker has also recorded music with Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Johnny Cash, Sia, Rufus Wainwright, the Doobie Brothers, Leonard Cohen, and many more. He’s also played drums on Roger Waters’ 2017 album Is This the Life We Really Want?, and joined Waters’ band during the Us + Them Tour. 

Waronker joined forces with Thom Yorke, Flea, Nigel Godrich and Mauro Refosco to play material on Yorke’s The Eraser album in three Los Angeles dates in October 2009. The band, now called Atoms for Peace, toured the U.S. in 2010. Waronker is also part of the experimental band Ultraista, formed in 2008.
