You’ve never seen it. But you’ve heard its music.

Jeffrey Osborne's On The Wings Of Love. Deniece Williams' Let's Hear It For The Boy. A Taste Of Honey's Sukiyaki. Unforgettable sides by Miles Davis, Al Jarreau, Gladys Knight, Dionne Warwick and Anita Baker. All these artists and more made history at Le Gonks West, the legendary recording studio wrapped in this secluded Hollywood Hills estate.

Now a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own this historic residence and wellspring of music history has emerged.

Set amid serene, park-like grounds, the extensively enhanced 1925 residence was the longtime home and creative center of keyboard pioneer, composer, singer and producer George Duke. On the main and upper levels, over 3,400 sq. ft. of private quarters are warmed by rich hardwood, stained glass and wrought iron. Spaces include an elegant living room with fireplace and balcony, a media/theater room with bar, a formal dining room, and a kitchen with breakfast nook. Three bedrooms and three baths complete the living area.

Accessed from the outside, the lower level studio is home to over 1,400 square feet of professionally designed and built recording studio space, including control room with soffit-mount monitors, live room with sound isolation booths, bathroom, lounge, wine cellar and office space that could be used as an editing bay (equipment not included).Now this secluded world, minutes from the heart of Hollywood, Runyon Canyon and the Hollywood Bowl, is ready to launch your own lifetime of legends.
