Blink-182 Drummer Travis Barker Selling a Modern Masterpiece in L.A.

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has decided to beat it out of his home in L.A.’s Cheviot Hills neighborhood, putting the modern four-bedroom residence on the market for $4,750,000.

The home, described as an “innovative architectural showpiece,” is in an upscale, sedate neighborhood of Los Angeles, just south of Century City and Fox Studios and within walking distance to the Rancho Park golf course.

It’s not where you’d think an extensively tattooed punk rocker would settle down. But he’s a family man with two kids—Landon, 13, and Alabama, 10—he had with Shanna Moakler, a former Miss USA. Barker and Moakler were married from 2004 to 2008, and their stormy relationship was documented on the MTV reality show “Meet the Barkers.”

The percussion phenom purchased the Cheviot Hills home in 2014 for $4 million after it had been completely remodeled.

“This is a custom-built house with great architectural integrity and high-end design,” says listing agent Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker. “It’s stylish, chic, cool, hip, and sophisticated, designed with exquisite taste and the highest standards. It’s a remarkable home.”

The living room has a 13-foot ceiling and large windows. It also features a retractable wall of glass and a kitchen island that extends to the outdoor patio, which create an indoor-outdoor flow that is unlike anything else in the area.

The second story cantilevers over the patio, to shelter an outdoor living room complete with a TV and fireplace. The second-story master suite includes not one, not two, but three walk-in closets, and a ceramic and walnut master bath.

Barker’s home office with the built-in dog door shows that he’s come a long way since the ’90s, when he worked as a trash collector to make ends meet.

“Four years ago, I couldn’t afford to feed myself,” he told Rolling Stone in 2000. “But now I can buy art, work on old Cadillacs, and live in comfort. I can finally buy a dog and afford to feed him.”

In 2008, Barker survived a private jet crash in 2008, which had a profound effect on him, both physically and emotionally. Barker is once again playing with Blink-182, which reunited in 2016. He’s also reported to be producing a solo, hip-hop-focused album.
