Kesha Is Seeking $6 Million for This Modern Compound on L.A.’s Westside

Four years ago, in the midst of a long-running legal war with powerhouse music producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, Kesha dropped an impressive $5 million on a brand-new home in the increasingly expensive Westside neighborhood of Mar Vista. The veteran singer-songwriter has occupied the bold and unapologetically blocky compound ever since the Covid-19 pandemic, though she’s now apparently ready to seek out new real estate pastures. The Mar Vista estate has popped up on the open market, asking just a hair under $6 million.

The 37-year-old Tennessee native, who first burst onto the music scene in 2009 and has since sold 134 million records nationwide, remains perhaps best-known for her debut single and mega-hit TiK ToK, though she’s also racked up multiple other top 10 songs (Your Love Is My Drug, We R Who We R, Blow). Last year, she released her fifth studio album Gag Order, which received positive reviews from music critics.

Built on speculation by a local developer, the nearly 6,000 sq. ft. main house was completed in 2019. Within the slick wood-and-concrete exterior, the house offers chic hardwood floors, neutral decor and a fireplace-equipped living room with high ceilings. There’s also an open kitchen with a massive island, quartz cabinetry and designer appliances, plus an adjacent formal dining area.

The main house also packs in five bedrooms, and the upstairs master contains a private balcony, spa-style bath with soaking tub and a Rodeo Drive boutique-style dressing room. Naturally, this is also a full-fledged “smart home” with a full range of security cameras, a sophisticated home automation system and and speakers in each room.

Out back, the landscaping is kept simple with a spacious grassy lawn, slick concrete pavers for outdoor entertaining, and a vast swimmer’s pool with inset spa. But perhaps the best recreational feature is the two-story detached guesthouse, which contains another two bedrooms, two baths and also functions as an open-air movie theater—a projector that projects onto the side of the guesthouse, so guests can watch a movie from the backyard.

It’s not particularly surprising that Kesha would have opted to buy in Mar Vista; she’s got a documented fondness for this particular area of Los Angeles. Back in 2014, she picked up a small bungalow in the trendy nearby neighborhood of Venice, Calif., though she sold ultimately sold that $1.7 million place after barely a year of ownership. And in 2016, she sold a $1.4 million mini-compound in Nashville, Tenn. to a non-famous buyer.
