Former Maroon 5 Drummer Ryan Dusick Buys Tarzana Home
Former Maroon 5 drummer Ryan Dusick may have a Los Feliz property on the market, but he’s already found a new place to call home.

The founding member of the pop-rock band recently bought a new pad in Tarzana, CA for $1.175 million.

Built in 1964 and freshly remodeled, this 3,040-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 4-bath home is all about the details. Throughout the abode, ebony hardwood floors contrast elegantly with ivory walls and natural lighting, accented by dark beams on slanted high ceilings. With a 5-car garage, Dusick has enough room to house a car for every season.

The kitchen boasts all-new, professional Thermador stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and drawers, black granite, designer lighting and tile floors. Both fireplaces in the home have been refaced, and the baths have been completely redone. Even the backyard has received a face-lift, with fresh landscaping and a newly plastered/tiled pool. In essence, this home has received a Hollywood makeover, head-to-toe.

In 2005, Dusick purchased a beautiful Wallace Neff-restored home, which was listed in June and is currently still for sale. The Los Feliz property was recently given a price cut, dropping from $1.249 million to $1.225 million.

Dusick was an instrumental part of Maroon 5r42;s beginnings. In 1994, he joined young Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden to form Kara’s Flowers, a band that leaped between Nirvana and Pearl Jam influences to a self-described Beatlemania.

Eventually the petals of Kara’s Flowers fell apart like orchids in the winter, and the band members entered a hiatus, followed by a reunion in 2001. By then Levine had his heart broken, which we all know is the recipe for beautiful song lyrics and a hit album (“Songs About Jane”), which of course followed. Dusick injured his arm during a successful but strenuous tour. Originally thought to be temporary, the condition did not go away, and he was forced to throw in the towel.
