It wasn’t until the onset of filming Hannah Montana in 2007 that the Cyrus family moved from their 500- acre Tennessee farm to a new home in Toluca Lake, California – an easy commute to the Disney studios for Billy and Miley. The home was where Miley spent most of her teen years and after the series was over, the family moved back to Tennessee and the home was placed in a trust for her. In 2015, she put it on the market for $5.995 million.
Tuscan style, gated and tucked privately away inside walls and thick tropical vegetation, the home is accessed by a long-bricked drive bordered by trees and thick hedging opening onto a brick motor court. Designed and built in 2007 by architect Bob Easton, its appearance with patches of vine-covered walls, red-barrel tile roof and Old World ambiance belies its youth. At 8,700 square feet on just under an acre, it houses six bedrooms, seven baths, grand entry foyer with curved staircase accented with wrought iron and formal rooms that open to views of the pool and lush landscaping. There is a large chef’s kitchen with ogee-edged granite countertops, family room, home theatre and Billy’s former guitar display room. Built on two levels, the master suite has a rooftop terrace with fireplace and large walk-in dressing rooms. Both inside and outside are multiple venues with fireplaces for lounging and entertaining both covered and open-air. A state-of-the-art security system and cameras protect all areas of the property. The listing agent is happy to report that the home was sold at the full $5.995 million asking price.
