The Hollywood Hills home of Roland Orzabal, co-founder of Tears for Fears, certainly is something to shout about. The estate boasts colorful interiors and a lush Nichols Canyon setting.

After almost 20 years, the musician has put his gorgeously remodeled Los Angeles home on the market for $3,950,000.

Orzabal, the main songwriter and joint vocalist of the band, purchased the 4,266-square-foot luxury home in 2003 for $1,675,000, records show. Over the years, the performer has at times listed the property for rent for as much as $12,900 per month.

The Tears for Fears House is a Rockin’ Residence

Wrapped in walls of glass, the contemporary two-story home features an open floor plan, with a second-story gallery overlooking the family room.

You’ll also find three additional bedrooms—there are four in all—and five bathrooms total.

The large primary suite is also located upstairs and features a soaring ceiling, fireplace, walk-in closet, dry sauna, richly hued bathroom, and French doors leading to a balcony.

The outdoor space is as sumptuous as the indoor space, with its sleek lounge area built right into the terraced hillside, its sparkling pool, and a cozy fire pit. The entire 6,978-square-foot lot is rich with native California foliage and mature trees.

Surprisingly enough, there’s no music studio here, but the luxe residence is just a quick drive to some of the best recording studios in the world, such as Capital Records. Hollywood and the Sunset Strip are also nearby.
And conveniently, the house is located just 3 miles away from the Los Angeles residence of Tears for Fears co-founder (and Orzabal’s bandmate) Curt Smith.
Orzabal, 61, who grew up in England, met Smith when they were both in their early teens. They eventually formed Tears for Fears and launched their debut album in 1983.
The band’s biggest hits include “Shout,” “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” and “Head Over Heels.”
Bryan Castaneda and Andrew Mortaza of The Agency represent the listing.
