Sum 41 rock star (and former Mr. Avril Lavigne) Deryck Whibley is saying goodbye to his tumultuous past — including listing the home for sale in Sherman Oaks, CA, that he bought for $1.7 million after splitting from Avril back in 2009. The beautiful two-story Spanish contemporary home has a price tag of $2.799 million.
Featuring a traditional Spanish red-clay-tile roof, the five-bed, six-bath property measures 5,312 square feet. Built in 2008, the spacious, welcoming estate boasts a gourmet kitchen, where top-of-the-line appliances surround the center island, and a breakfast area that opens out to the family room, formal dining room, and living room. Upstairs, a loft/office features custom built-ins. The master suite, which has its own sitting area and private balcony, offers dual walk-in closets. In the rear of the home, lush grounds provide ample space for entertaining guests, complete with a grassy yard, outdoor dining area, a swimming pool, and spa.
After nearly dying back in 2014 due to liver and kidney failure as a result of alcoholism, Deryck has been working hard to get his life back on track. Now with his health problems in check, Deryck has already moved on to greener pastures. He recently purchased a five-bed, seven-bath spread in the neighboring town of Encino, CA, for a cool $2.8 million, and he’s got a lovely new fiancee. Hey, there’s nothing Hollywood loves more than a comeback story!
