It has been noted that for the past three-and-a-half years, Matt Helders has lived in a rather stunning home near L.A.’s Silver Lake Reservoir that he’s had photographed numerous times.
It has come to light that the popular drummer, singer and songwriter — best known as a founding member of the British indie rock band Arctic Monkeys — has upgraded his residential circumstances, having picked up the keys to revamped ranch-style digs in Studio City via Dirt.
Helders splurged just over $3.6 million for his striking new place, which was built in the ’60s and recently remodeled by Maine Design. Described in the listing as a “spectacular re-interpretation of famed midcentury architecture,” the four-bedroom, four-bath home has almost 3,400 square feet of contemporary living space, plus an attached studio that’s currently being used as an office space.
Nestled on a secluded cul-de-sac, amid a gated corner parcel spanning over a quarter-acre of land, the white stucco structure is accessible via a covered entryway, and features open-concept interiors boasting rustic hardwood floors and wood-beam ceilings throughout.
A living room spotlighted by a two-way fireplace that connects to a cozy den, both with walls of French doors spilling out to a terrace ideal for al fresco entertaining. A dining area adjoins the updated kitchen, which is outfitted with vintage-style appliances and an eat-in island sporting a double sink with brass fixtures.
Elsewhere is a master retreat that flows to a snazzy bath decked out with dual vanities, a built-in soaking tub and glass-encased shower; and outdoors, the hedge-lined backyard overlooks canyon views, and hosts a pool and spa surrounded by a grassy lawn. There’s also a spacious motorcourt and an attached two-car garage out front.
In addition to his newly acquired Studio City house, the England native, 37, still maintains the aforementioned Silver Lake home that he paid just over $1.5 million for back in late 2019. Before that, he owned a celeb-pedigreed cottage in Hollywood Hills that he sold to film producer Greg Shapiro for $3.1 million.
