Weezer Bassist Scott Shriner Sells California Home for $2.4 Million
After listing his home in late January, Weezer bassist Scott Shriner has already sold it— for $250,000 more than the asking price. The house he shared with his wife, writer Jill Lauren, went for $2.4 million.
Perhaps it's not such a surprise - after all, the original listing notes that "this home will wow your sense," whatever that means. Shriner purchased the 2,233-square-foot two-story modern treehouse in 2014 for $1.7 million, after it had sold the year prior for just $760,000.
The three-bed, three-bath Silver Lake home features lush landscaping and picture windows with offer views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean. An open floor plan, hardwood floors, a free-standing fireplace and marble countertops are among its best features, along with a master suite on each floor, with sliding glass doors that open to views of a grassy backyard. The property also boasts a patio, a detached garage and a flagstone-paved stairway, all of which sits behind a fence that provides privacy.
“This other album kind of materialized,” frontman Rivers Cuomo explained at the time. “I had two folders on my Dropbox: one was The Black Album, and it didn’t get filled as quickly as the other folder, which I temporarily titled New Folder. That one filled up with 10 songs that were definitely different, but not quite as different as The Black Album. So we put a name on it – Pacific Daydream – and put that one out first.”
