Hollywood Hills celebrity estate, tied to music and film

A piece of Hollywood history with ties to music and film luminaries is once again up for grabs.

This Nichols Canyon estate, once owned by The Wallflowers frontman Jakob Dylan in the 1990s and later by renowned actress Renée Zellweger, is making headlines as it enters the market with an asking price of nearly $5 million.

Originally constructed six decades ago, this celeb-pedigreed pad has undergone a complete transformation since its inception, according to the Robb Report.

The property last changed hands in 2003 when it was acquired by Tracey Jacobs, a partner at United Talent Agency and a former agent to superstar Johnny Depp.

Now, under the expert guidance of listing agent Josh Flagg from Douglas Elliman, this unique property is once again seeking new ownership.

Nestled behind secure walls and a lengthy gated driveway, the estate sprawls over nearly an acre of land, neighbouring properties owned by Beverly D’Angelo and Seth Rogen.

The single-level abode boasts three bedrooms and four baths within its 315sq m of living space, all adorned with rich dark hardwood floors and elegant wood-beam ceilings.

One of the property’s standout features is a living room that radiates warmth with its fireplace, custom built-ins, and French doors leading to the backyard.

The formal dining room is equally inviting with its own fireplace, while a library offers floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

The family room seamlessly connects to a gourmet kitchen complete with marble countertops and top-tier appliances.

The primary bedroom is a sumptuous retreat, featuring a sitting area, cedar walk-in closet, and a marble-clad bath that rivals a spa, boasting a fireplace, heated floors, dual vanities, a soaking tub, and a steam shower.

The outdoor space is equally impressive, with an oasis-like setting featuring a pool and spa, surrounded by a sundeck.

An alfresco dining area with a built-in barbecue is perfect for entertaining, and a detached two-car garage completes the picture.

For Tracey Jacobs, this sale represents a transition to a new chapter in her residential journey.

She recently acquired Rihanna’s Tudor-style house in the mountains above Beverly Hills for a staggering $10.3 million.
