Otis Williams, co-founder of the R&B/soul group the Temptations, has listed his Woodland Hills home for sale at $849,000.

The gated Mediterranean-style home, built in 1989, features a two-story living room, three fireplaces, a billiards room, an office, four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms. There are about 3,600 square feet of living space in two stories.

Williams, who will turn 71 on Oct. 30, is a singer, songwriter and record producer. The baritone is the last surviving member of the original Temptations lineup and has continued to tour.

The Grammy-winning group's hits include "Can't Get Next to You," "My Girl," "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)."

Williams bought the property in 1999 for $485,000 as "a low maintenance home he could lock up and leave" while on tour, according to L.A. Times archives and public records.

Marty Trugman and Tanya Hindoyan of Teles Properties are the listing agents.
