Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell is an American singer and songwriter based out of Los Angeles, California. Coming from a family of musicians, Eilish was no stranger to music growing up – even at a young age, the singer was already showing a deep interest in becoming a vocalist, actually joining a children’s chorus at age 8. By the time Billie had turned 11, she was already writing and performing her own songs. Her true rise to fame, however, didn’t occur until 2016, when she provided the vocals for “Ocean Eyes,” a song that was written by her brother Finneas. The pair recorded the song in Finneas’s small bedroom at the former Billie Eilish house in Los Angeles. They ended up putting it on Soundcloud, where the tune instantly went viral, leading to Billie Eilish becoming one of the hottest pop stars in the music industry. Only two years after debuting her first single, Eilish released her debut EP Don’t Smile at Me. Between her unique style, angelic vocals, and over-the-top music videos, people just can’t get enough of this girl.

Where Does Billie Eilish Live?
Billie Eilish is a native Californian and continues to call The Golden State her home. More about Billie Eilish childhood home in Los Angeles home below, as well as the scoop on her brother’s new pad.
Billie Eilish House Los Angeles
Keeping to her roots, Eilish still lives in her 1,208 square foot family home in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, with her parents. Her brother also lived at the home until moving out in 2019. More on that below. The house only has two bedrooms, which was enough for both Billie and Finneas to have their own spaces, while their parents opted to sleep in the living room on a futon to allow their children more room to work on their music. There is also only one bathroom in the modest abode.
Being a musically inclined family, it’s not really a surprise that the home also houses 3 pianos (Finneas even had an entire recording setup in his room for the siblings to develop songs when inspiration struck). The residence was built in 1912, and property records indicate the property last sold in 2001 for $240,000. Currently, the single-family home’s estimated value is around $763,400.
Billie gave Gayle King of CBS This Morning an amazing interview at her home, which aired on December 8th, 2019. But below is a great video of Billie’s brother Finneas giving AWAL a tour of the home in early 2019.
Finneas O’Connell House
Billie Eilish’s brother and partner in crime, Finneas, dropped $2.73 million on a home in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles in October 2019. Prior to this purchase, he still lived in the family home mentioned above.
The nearly 100-year-old home is 2,600 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The exterior of the home is Spanish inspired with pops of color, and the interior is pristinely renovated.
The home was purchased through a trust linked to Finneas, but rumor has it that his sister may move in, too. However, Velvet Ropes has not independently confirmed the rumors.
