Neil Peart of the rock band Rush has bought a home in Santa Monica for $4.95 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.
The seller, real estate attorney Gary B. Torpy, had listed the Richard Landry-designed Mediterranean at $5.125 million.
The 6,200-square-foot, two-story house was built in 2001. The step-down living room adjoins a music room. French doors off the dining room lead to an outside courtyard. A double-sided fireplace in the master suite opens to both the bedroom and bathroom. The basement includes a media room, a wine cellar and a wet bar. There are a total of five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms.
