Odadjian was born in Armenia but raised in Los Angeles where (possibly in the Glendale area) he attended the Rose and Alex Pilibos Armenian school in Hollywood where his bandmates also attended school but at different times due to age gaps. Odadjian is easily recognizable for his signature braided beard.

In addition to the Woodland Hills home, Odadjian also owns a Burbank home (shown above) up in the hills overlooking the airport that was purchased on January 18, 2012 for $1.5 million which might explain the reason for listing the Woodland Hills home. The home measures 5 Beds/4.5 Baths on 4,200 sqft on a total lot size of 9,688 sqft built in 2001. The listing description states:
This elegant 5 bedroom, 5 bath room home located in the Burbank Hills is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac on one of the most desirable streets in the Hallston community. In addition to its' premium location, it also has one of the premier lots with spectacular unobstructed views of both the city lights and the mountains from the very private backyard. There is a spacious covered patio, a fire pit, gazebo and water feature for fine entertaining. This home has beautiful finishes including a pattern of inlaid stone from Italy in the entry. The entry ceiling has been painted to replicate the pattern on the floor. When the sun shines through the windows, it highlights the finishes on the walls and the beautiful woods that have been used throughout this home. Entertaining is easy with the chef's kitchen open to the family room, flowing outside to the patio and gazebo. No expense has been spared in the kitchen which includes stainless steel appliances, a Viking 5 burner cook top and built in ovens and microwave. Enjoy the views from the master bedroom, bathroom and expanded balcony. The loft, connecting the additional three bedrooms and two bathrooms is the perfect place to relax. This home has it all, views, privacy and elegance.

And as a bonus, Odadjian's parent's (possibly where Shavo himself spent time) home (shown above) is also located in Burbank not too far from his new home which measures 6 Beds/4 Baths on 2,932 sqft on a total lot size of 8,013 sqft built in 1939. This property was purchased for $232,000 on July 28, 1994 which happens to be the year when System of a Down started to actively perform and the Northridge quake.
