Some celebrity homes are cosy and colourful, some boast glitzy features like helipads, plunge pools or tennis courts, while others possess a rather different kind of character. This is certainly true of Rufus Wainwright’s Los Angeles property, which – aptly located on Woodland Lane in Laurel Canyon – could very well have been plucked from a storybook.

Brimming with eclectic features and finished in a colour palette of vibrant reds, yellows and blues, the home offers three bedrooms and four bathrooms. There’s an all-important music corner (currently occupied by a grand piano, of course) alongside a formal dining room.

Strolling through the house, you’ll spot a sprawling living room with a vaulted ceiling and a tiled fireplace. The star of the show, however, is a spectacular octagonal library, which is complete with towering bay windows and charming window seats.

Outside, there’s a shaded courtyard area with a pond and plenty of plants; if you’re after somewhere more expansive, however, you’ll also find a terrace providing the perfect vantage point from which to admire the surrounding landscape.
