OC Register — A home in singer Gwen Stefani’s family â€“ and also the setting for a music video by her group No Doubt â€“ has sold for $399,000.
The asking price on the house dropped to $439,900 in March from its initial list price of $474,900 in January.
The 1,043-square-foot house, which appears in the “Sunday Morning” video, was owned by Gwen’s mother and the mother of Patrick Sharples, the listing agent and Gwen’s cousin.
The home, at 322 S. Ohio St. in the Anaheim Colony Historical District, was built in 1936 and has an attic and covered porch.
Because of the home’s historical designation, the new owner may qualify for a Mills Act tax reduction. The home needs “cosmetic repairs,” according to the listing.
The home’s historic name is the Armbrust-Pember House.
The house once belonged to their late grandparents on Gwen’s mother’s side, Sharples says. Gwen’s grandfather was still alive when “Sunday Morning” was shot and he appears in the video.
Another home in Stefani’s family â€“ one owned by her grandparents on her father’s side â€“ sold for $325,000 in February. That house, at 1173 W. Beacon Ave., is where songs in No Doubtâ€™s â€œBeacon Street Collectionâ€ were recorded. The bandâ€™s â€œTrapped in a Boxâ€ video and part of the â€œJust a Girlâ€ video also were shot there.
The Colony is a roughly 2-square-mile area bordered by North, South, East and West streets in Anaheim.
