The Eagles Lair of the Great Glenn Frey is Now on the Market for $15 Million
Forgive me, but I get a little emotional when I write about certain properties, and such is the case with the family estate of Eagles founder and frontman Glenn Frey, who died last year at age 67. His longtime home has just come on the market in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood for $15 million, and when I think of those hot summer nights I spent listening to the Eagles in my high school boyfriend’s truck… Yep – the Eagles were a big part of the soundtrack of my life.
Glenn Frey and his wife, Cindy Millican Frey, purchased the 8,800-square-foot home in 2002 for $10 million from late TV exec Michael King, who was responsible for launching iconic series such as “Wheel of Fortune,” “Jeopardy,” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Count those shows on the TV guide of my life.
The home was built in 1996, and is described as a “Montecito Spanish Estate” by listing agent David Offer. It features a red-tile roof, stone and wide-plank wood flooring, arched doorways, thick plaster walls, and rustic wooden ceiling beams.
The open floor plan, well-appointed kitchen with an island, digital media room, and clean lines bring the residence comfortably into the 21st century.
Located in the Brentwood Park area, near the chic stores and restaurants of San Vicente Boulevard, the half-acre property features sweeping lawns, fountains, stone patios, rose gardens,
a children’s play area,
a cabana, and guesthouse. There’s also a mosaic-tiled pool and spa.
There are a total of six bedrooms, seven baths, and four half-baths.
The main residence has an enormous foyer with a staircase with wrought-iron railing.
Upstairs, the master suite comes with a sitting room, private balcony, and fireplace for a peaceful, easy feeling.
The master bath has the luxurious amenities you might expect to find in the Presidential Suite at the Hotel California.
The basement features a large entertainment space with a home theater and bar for serving the perfect tequila sunrise.
The rock legend is survived by his wife and three children. Variety reports that earlier this year Millican Frey purchased a 4,000-square-foot, Cape Cod–style home in the Los Angeles Bird Streets, for which she paid nearly $8 million, and is already gone. It’s a little sad to think that there will be no more Boys of Summer in Brentwood, but we wish her well.
