A compound once owned by "Silky Soul Singer" Marvin Gaye and his first wife, Anna, has come on the market in Hollywood Hills West at $3.799 million.

The 1.46-acre estate includes a four-bedroom, five-bathroom main house, a guesthouse, an outdoor kitchen and an eight-car motor court. Water spills down a wall of boulders and into the swimming pool. There are three fireplaces and 3,156 square feet of living space.

Gaye, who died in 1984 at 44, found success in the late 1960s singing duets with Tammi Terrell such as "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing." His hits included "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "What's Going On" and the Grammy Award-winning "Sexual Healing."

The Gayes owned the house in the mid-70s when Anna Gaye, the elder sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy, filed for divorce. She kept the house until 2008, when it sold for $1.91 million.

Nada Nadia Villarreal and Anthony Paradise of Sotheby's Sunset office are the listing agents.
