Rolling Stones musician Keith Richards once brought a Laurel Canyon house to the ground, literally.

The home, listed for sale at $3.695 million, was part of a two-house compound of sorts in the 1960s and ’70s that was a center for the local rock ‘n’ roll insanity movement. When the home’s owner, music manager Skip Taylor, moved out, he rented the place to Richards.

“There was a big party one night and somebody had turned the gas fire off — but not all the way,” Richards is quoted as saying in Keith Richards: The Unauthorised Biography” by Victor Bockris.
Incense caused the gas to explode and start a house fire while Richards slept. He and a friend barely escaped as the roof fell in.

All that remains of the original 1930s house is the circular staircase to the California basement — the small basement used to house the gravity-feed heater.

The house was rebuilt in 1981 and has since been renovated in keeping with the English Tudor style and feel of the neighborhood.

The English Tudor-style home is a svelte, sophisticated contemporary paying homage to its history but with a distinct modern vibe.  Accessed by foot bridge over a babbling creek, the 4,000-square-foot house has five bedrooms, four baths, formal rooms, family room and library.

Unusual and outstanding features include an artful use of white with varying hues and shades of gray, leaded glass, French doors, custom Calcutta marble counters in kitchen and baths, pub, and wood-ceiling beams in the master suite.

Outside is a new pool, spa and outdoor kitchen with views over a grassy field with pergola and south-facing Lavender Nature Retreat.
