Pop and classical singer Josh Groban has listed his gated house in Malibu at $5.475 million.
The crooner put the Tuscan-inspired home up for lease a few years ago at $23,000 a month after it failed to sell at $6.1 million. Perhaps this time around it will hit all the right notes with a buyer.
A long brick driveway leads to the multi-level house, which was built in 1976 and sits on 1.8 acres.
