The mansion is one of the 'largest privately gated lots' in Sherwood Country Club, as the listing notes, and offers mountain views.

Pop legend Paul Anka has put his Thousand Oaks estate on the market for $10 million.

Decorated with Anka’s gold records in MLS photos, this 7,791-square-foot French-style residence features four bedrooms and six bathrooms. It sits at the end of a long driveway on nearly six acres, making it one of the “largest privately gated lots” in Sherwood Country Club, as the listing notes, and offers mountain views.

Records show the “Put Your Head on My Shoulder” crooner bought the newer property in 2007 for $3.96 million.

Anka, who was born in Ottawa in 1941, got his start as a teen idol in the late 1950s with hits like “Diana,” “Lonely Boy” and “Put Your Head on My Shoulder.” He went on to compose “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” theme and numerous chart-toppers, including Tom Jones’ “She’s a Lady” and the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra’s signature “My Way.”

Now 82, Annka continues to perform. He will bring his “Seven Decades Tour” to the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert on Jan. 9 and 10 and the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills on Jan. 12.
