Singer-songwriter Halsey is selling her impressive midcentury home in Los Angeles. The pop star and expecting mother purchased the double-gated property in 2019 for $2,400,000. Set on a lush, tree-filled lot in the quiet Sherman Oaks community, the 2,425-square-foot dwelling offers four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and tons of original charm.

The post-and-beam home sits on a spacious lot in Los Angeles’s Sherman Oaks neighborhood. 

The single-story residence was designed in 1959 by renowned architect Richard Dorman, AIA, and has been impeccably preserved throughout the decades. "This property is one of the best examples of Richard Dorman’s work that Los Angeles has to offer," says listing agent Josh Myler. "To add to its allure, the home is positioned on a quiet street in a great location and sits on a very large, flat lot."

Upon arrival, a generous entryway leads to the home’s primary gathering spaces. A brick fireplace anchors the open living room, which is fitted with a calming and neutral palette.

Inside the home, an open-plan layout weaves the primary living areas together. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows sweep in ample natural light, while original details—such as post-and-beam structures, tongue-and-groove ceilings, and a brick fireplace—pay homage to the building’s past.

Recessed lighting stretches across the ceilings and walls, adding a warm glow throughout the home’s interior.

Floor-to-ceiling glazing spans one of the walls in the living room and provides direct access to the backyard. Skylights puncture the tongue-and-groove ceilings, while open shelving behind the sofa offers plenty of space to display collected memorabilia.  

The home is also very well equipped for modern living, with a large chef’s kitchen and an office, as well as a state-of-the-art recording studio. Glossy terrazzo floors blend with black-framed windows and wooden accents, all of which enhance the dwelling’s already sophisticated flair.

A cozy reading corner sits between the main living room and the kitchen. 

In the principal suite, an en suite bathroom features dual vanities and an oversize glass shower. The principal bedroom offers direct access to the landscaped backyard, which serves as a peaceful retreat with a large pool. 

Viking and Sub-Zero appliances pop against the built-in walnut cabinetry in the kitchen. 

Last year, Halsey—whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane—off-loaded a home in Beachwood Canyon, which she purchased in 2017. Recently, the star snagged a larger compound in Calabasas from the former One Direction band member, Liam Payne. Scroll ahead to see more of Halsey’s Sherman Oaks home, which is currently listed for $2,795,000.

The home’s post-and-beam construction continues into the principal suite, where sliding glass doors open up to the large pool in the landscaped backyard.

A frosted glass door in the en suite bathroom ensures privacy while also letting in natural light.

Each of the home’s spacious bedrooms offers direct access to the backyard. 

All of the bathrooms were recently remodeled and now feature new fixtures and finishes. 

In addition to a sparkling pool, the verdant backyard also comes with a spacious patio. The recording studio is located in a detached unit near the carport.

3337 Scadlock Lane in Sherman Oaks, California, is currently listed for $2,795,000 by Josh Myler of The Agency.
