The former home of the late Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, has sold off-market for $17.5 million, just four months after the musician died.

Details regarding the new owner remain scant. Property records reveal David Weise, a business manager who formerly worked with Bergling, was still connected to the property, through an LLC, in June.

Located on Blue Jay Way in the pricey Bird Streets in the Hollywood Hills, the 7,000-square-foot home has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The modern-style home, which was designed by Irish architect Paul McClean, also features expansive views of the city, an infinity-edge swimming pool and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Bergling acquired the home in November 2013 for $15.5 million, property records show. His nearby neighbors included actor Keanu Reeves, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Dr. Dre (who sold his home for $32 million in 2015).

Sales in the Bird Streets, a famed celebrity enclave above the Sunset Strip, have been sluggish of late because of an oversupply of spec homes that developers are pricing, in numerous cases, considerably above their market value, agents have told The Real Deal.
