Stevie Wonder is a music icon who lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. Get to know more about where Wonder calls home and his life outside of the spotlight.
Wonder has lived in several places over the years but his hometown is Detroit, Michigan. When he was a child, Wonder lived at 2701 Hastings Street in Detroit. And, as a teenager, Wonder lived at 18074 Greenlawn Street, also in Detroit, according to The Guardian. His childhood home on Greenlawn was a Tudor-style home that has since been torn down.
After making a career for himself in music, Wonder ended up living in places from the east to the west coast and has lived at several mansions since his days in Detroit. In 2008, Variety reported that Wonder had put his house on Chislehurst Drive in Los Angeles up on the market.
Wonder had first purchased the Los Feliz home on Chislehurst in 1979 for only $435,500. At the time Wonder put it on the market in 2008, the music legend was asking $3,200,000 for the 4,551 square foot home. That same year, The New York Post reported that Wonder’s home had caught fire and burned to the ground in a wildfire but Reuters reported this was not the case. Wonder released the following statement to debunk the report, “I’m grateful to say that my house was not burned down in the fire. I extend my sympathies to anyone who may have been touched by this horrendous event.”
Wonder also had a home in Alpine, New Jersey for years. See a photo of Wonder’s former Alpine mansion here via the NY Daily News.
Today, Wonder lives in Bel-Air Crest of Los Angeles, California with some very famous neighbors, according to Best Life Online. Bel-Air Crest is a gated community.
