    When it comes to naming a lead singer of a rock band who is finding happiness in family life, Gwen Stefani would like there to be No Doubt it's she.

    She and musician-actor Gavin Rossdale, frontman for the grunge group Bush, were married in 2002 and had a son, Kingston, in the spring of 2006. That September, Stefani and Rossdale bought a 10,000-square-foot Hollywood Hills home for their little family, paying slightly less than its $15.5-million asking price. The contemporary-style house is on 2 acres in a gated community.

    Stefani gained fame with rock group No Doubt and hits such as "Just a Girl" and "Don't Speak," then went for a solo spin; her latest solo album is "The Sweet Escape."

    Stefani has now put her Los Feliz bachelorette pad on the market at close to $4.8 million. It has six bedrooms and five bathrooms in 5,000 square feet. The grounds are about half an acre with a pool, spa, electric gates and a long, private drive. Mediterranean in style, the house was built in 1928 and has a two-story entry, hand-stenciled beams, a stone fireplace, an updated kitchen, an atrium with stained glass and a media room.

    Stefani, 37, has owned the Los Feliz home since 1998, when she bought it for $1.4 million. Two years later, on No Doubt's album "Return of Saturn," she wrote lyrics about her desire to be a mother. Kingston is expected to accompany his mother throughout her upcoming world tour. Last week, Stefani appeared on "American Idol" and performed on the 20th anniversary of the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in Hollywood.

    Stefani has been compared to a younger Madonna in appearance and style. She played Jean Harlow in the film "The Aviator." Rossdale, 41, appeared in the movie "Constantine" and is in the cast of the upcoming films "Frost Flowers" and "How to Rob a Bank."




    I also have pictures of the place she bought.....

    I would guess that its ok to say it's in Beverly Hills

    The first house is ridiculously ostentatious, the second is ridiculously mcmansion in style.

    One overdone, the other just modern ugly.

    Why don't celebs have any taste?

    It's too white for my taste...I don't see any warm colours.
    Warm colours = welcoming, all that white = cold

    Novice, you know whose house I want to buy! I'm waiting to win the lottery.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Well the second house was owned by Jlo. She sold it for 12.5 million to some guy, and he resold it for 15-16 million. so the whiteness can be explained by the Jlo touch lol.

    Damn.....I wouldn't have guessed Gwennie to live in either place!

    The first house looks as though it was done in Early WhoreHouse
    and Grimm is right about the second one looking like a McMansion.

    Very sterile ... can't picture anyone kicking back and getting comfortable in either place.

    You can do early 1900's mediterranean with taste, almost like a tuscan villa.. but it has to look aged and textured.. not like some newly stuccoed horror with fake period touches and sparkly new stained glass from home depot.
