A Late Guitar Legend’s Former Beverly Hills House Can Be Yours for $3 Million

With the recent passing of Duane Eddy at age 86, there’s no better time to showcase this striking midcentury modern once called home by the electric guitar virtuoso widely known for his signature “twang” sound. The man who influenced rock strummers ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Bruce Springsteen occupied the residence for around six years, beginning in 1963, and the place just popped up for sale in a canyon high above Beverly Hills, asking a smidge under $3 million.

Last sold in the spring of 2021 for $1.8 million to local real estate agents Derek Devore and Marisa San Antonio, and then transferred last year to Zen Estates LLC, the home was completed in the early ’60s. Featured inside the creamy stucco and terracotta-roof structure are three bedrooms and a matching number of baths filtered across a little more than 2,400 square feet of single-level living space, all of it adorned throughout with a mix of tile and light hardwood floors, high vaulted ceilings, and walls of glass framing picturesque canyon views.

A staircase nestled alongside a gated driveway and an attached two-car garage leads up to the ebony-hued front door, which opens to a formal dining area overlooking a spacious living room sporting a massive white brick fireplace with a floating hearth and built-in firewood storage, plus sliding glass doors spilling out to one of several decks. An adjacent kitchen displays a skylight, sleek white cabinetry, newer stainless appliances, and an accompanying breakfast nook with access to the outdoors.

Elsewhere is a cozy family room, as well as a primary suite with its own deck and dual-vanity bath. Outdoors, the secluded grounds span almost one-third of an acre and host terraced gardens amid a lush tree canopy, along with an open-air cabana flanking a brick-lined pool surrounded by a grassy lawn.

Per the listing, which is held by Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker Realty, plans have also been approved to convert the aforementioned garage into an accessory dwelling unit. And, lastly, the abode is also right down the street from the one-time home of Nancy Sinatra, which sold for $3 million in October.

Born in Corning, N.Y., Eddy started playing guitar at age 5 and went on to become a successful instrumental recording artist in the late ’50s and ’60s with hits like Forty Miles of Bad RoadBecause They’re Young, and Cannonball. Along the way, the self-taught musician influenced numerous rock guitarists, including George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Bruce Springsteen, the latter of whom paid homage to Eddy in Born to Run. Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, the same year his original hit recording of Rebel Rouser appeared in the movie Forrest Gump, he died on April 30 from complications of cancer.
