5SOS Guitarist Michael Clifford Lists Renovated Studio City House – DIRT

In 2017, the four members of Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer bought million-dollar homes in Los Angeles. Among them was Michael Clifford, who handed out $1.7 million for a dated little number perched high in the hills of Studio City. Since then, this home has undergone a spectacular multi-year renovation and is essentially brand new, top to bottom. Sydney-born 5SOS guitarist (“Youngblood,” “She Looks So Perfect,” “Easier”) is now putting the glitzy mansion back on the market with a hefty asking price of nearly $4 million — American Apparel underwear and stains lipstick not included.

Originally built in 1999, the former Mediterranean-style villa looks almost unrecognizable from its 2017 listing photos. Today, the expanded structure is ideal for a rock star – with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms spread over 4,000 square feet of airy living space. There are European hardwood floors, designer lighting and an elevator that services all three levels, as well as a recording studio, media room and Control4 home automation throughout.

Perched on a secluded hillside street and protected by security cameras, the structure is flanked by a duo of garages – one houses two cars behind a striking wooden door, while the other is currently outfitted in home gym. Gone is the old red-tiled roof, the pink stucco exterior, the columns and the sad flowerbed of four years ago; these have been replaced with contemporary white stucco, black-lined windows topped with awnings, and a small, inviting courtyard lined with leafy palms.

Once inside, highlights include a glamorous fireside family room and separate dining room with its own wine display, plus a sleek gourmet kitchen outfitted with custom cabinetry, Miele appliances and a breakfast nook. A lavish master suite features built-ins, a cozy fireplace, balcony and spa-like bath. The aforementioned media/games room particularly stands out, which is highlighted by a decorated walk-in bar and sliders that open to the backyard.

Speaking of the backyard, it was also significantly altered during Clifford’s tenure. New windows and sliding glass doors provide views of the city lights of the San Fernando Valley from almost every room. A reconfigured pool and spa sits alongside a wooden deck with a fire pit and outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, all overlooking a separate flat, grassy lot perfect for relaxing and playing lawn games. Cornhole, anyone?

Clifford, 25, also owns an eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom resort in Los Angeles’ Valley Village neighborhood, which he bought for $2 million in late 2019. The Agency’s Holly Hatch and Kase’s Keven Stirdivant Real Estate hold the listing of his Studio City home.
