If we had to compile a general list of things to do when you attain rock star status, one task would definitely include acquiring and selling at least one extravagant mansion (bonus points for selling it to another celebrity).

The latest musician hoping to achieve this luxury lifestyle feat is Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, who recently placed his Encino home on the market. The single-level, gated residence is listed at $2,395,000, which is slightly more than the $1.9 million the singer paid for it back in 2015.

The five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home is located in the swanky area known as Amestoy Estates, which has seen its fair share of famous residents over the years, including Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez and Cincinnati Reds player Yasiel Puig.  Like other homes in the neighborhood, Wentz’s pad is built for privacy. The estate sits behind an invisible high wall and is further insulated by secured gates.

The interior features arch windows and doorways, wood flooring and beamed ceilings. At approximately 4,100 square feet, the space consists of an open-floor plan that encompasses the living room, dining room, a remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, dark custom cabinetry and a large island, and a lounge area with a built-in media center. The master suite has a private patio, double walk-in closets and a soaking tub and sauna. Like the living room, the master opens to the private backyard, which is surrounded by several trees, and has a sports court, a dining patio, and a saltwater swimming pool.

There shouldn’t be any doubt about this home being the go-to spot for gatherings.’s celebrity real estate expert Erik Gunther tells Apartment Therapy, “We imagine the next buyer will be a fan of the wide-open floor plan and private backyard – ideal entertaining characteristics—in this home.”

Amestoy Estates is named for a sheepherder who went on to become one of Southern California’s most prominent wool producers. So true to form, Wentz is leaving behind one posh place for another. Variety reports that the bass player already purchased a new pad: a $5.5 million Mediterranean-style mansion in Beverly Hills that he shares with his girlfriend Meagan Camper.
