Back on March 8, 2012, Debbie Peterson of the all-female 80's pop rock group, The Bangles, quietly sold her long time Woodland Hills home and at the same time purchased another Woodland Hills home.

Debbie along with her sister Vicki (who currently lives in Calabasas) hooked up with Susanna Hoffs in 1980 to form the The Bangles which  was originally named The Colours, followed by The Supersonic Bangs, then The Bangs, and finally The Bangles. According to Wikipedia, the Peterson sisters were both born in Northridge although Vicki's personal bio on The Bangles website says Burbank while Debbie's says Los Angeles. I am not sure if the Peterson sisters grew up in Northridge or other parts of the Valley. Enjoy some of the top hits below from The Bangles like Walk Like an Egyptian and Hazy Shade of Winter.

Starting with the home that was sold (shown above), it measured 3 Beds/3 Baths on 2,127 sqft on a total lot size of 9,845 sqft built in 1985. Peterson purchased this home on June 21, 1988 for $330,000 back in the previous mini-bubble days of the housing market. She successfully sold the home for $582,500 on March 8, 2012 netting a gain of $252,500 before taxes, commissions, fees, carrying costs, and any renovation expenses. The listing description is below:
Secluded on its own private lane, Thorn Lane, South of the Blvd in Woodland Hills, you will find this private artist retreat. The home was totally remodeled at the end of 2009. The kitchen is a gourmet chef?s dream: Caeserstone counters, Grohe fixtures/faucets, 6 burner Viking cooktop, and stainless steel appliances throughout. Also a formal dining room and large family room with a fireplace. The master suite is stunning with a bathroom you don?t want to leave. The room has French doors that lead you to the outdoor life. Also on this level is a 2nd bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs, is a 3rd bedroom and bath. The 2 car garage with an entrance to the house and a large storage room. Off the interior dining area is a large entertainer?s deck with a dining area and gas plumbed BBQ island. The seller has supplied the agent with a large list of all the Re-model details, to many to mention.

Peterson and family then took the profits from the sale and purchased another Woodland Hills home (shown above) that closed a month later. The home measures 3 Bed/4 Baths on 3,584 sqft on a total lot size of 0.29 acres which was a newly built home with an official build year of 2010. Peterson paid $1,149,000 on April 16, 2012.
