Iconic frontman and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Lindsey Buckingham is listing his new build in Brentwood for $22.5 million after significant renovations. The Fleetwood Mac lead guitarist and his wife, a professional interior designer, have created a gorgeous interior for their colonial mansion.
Lindsey Buckingham grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and became interested in music at an early age. His parents purchased his first guitar, a $35 Harmony, and he learned to emulate folk music and psychedelic rock. After dropping out of college, he became a member of the band Fritz, where he met Stevie Nicks, who would become his long-time girlfriend and fellow bandmate in Fleetwood Mac.
Lindsey toured with Fleetwood Mac from 1975 to 1987 and then again starting in 1997. The folksy blues rock band has spawned legions of hits in its forty years, many of which were written by Buckingham. In the interim between playing with the band, Lindsey developed his own solo projects.
Lindsey Buckingham has three children and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of Fleetwood Mac in 1998.

Features to Love About This Home
- Hardwood in unexpected places: Hardwood is expected–and loved–on floors, but when it’s used for the ceiling, it just adds another layer of sophistication. That’s exactly what happens in this home’s game room, adding a sense of playfulness in an otherwise very traditional room.
- The kitchen: This room is a contemporary take on the traditional. High ceilings and natural lighting give it a spacious feel, while modern materials like marble backsplashes and stainless steel appliances blend seamlessly with white and gray cabinets.
- Unique flooring: Interesting floor patterns and painted tiles in the kitchen and baths lend an air of playfulness to this quiet estate.
- An eye for details: This home isn’t missing a thing. Walls and ceilings are accented with molded paneling, tray ceilings, and numerous other decorative embellishments, all of which lend an air of sophistication.
