Rocker has a slight change in tune
In a bid to drum up interest from potential buyers, Tommy
Lee of Motley Crue fame has tuned the asking price for his home in a guard-gated Calabasas community to $4.995 million, or about $500 per square foot.
Built in 1987, the exotic-vibe three-story is amped up with a range of rock-star amenities: a full-blown recording studio, a movie theater, an indoor spa, two kitchens, a central atrium with cascading waterfalls and a retractable glass roof.
The nearly 10,000 square feet of living space also has formal living and dining rooms, a library/office and a wine room. A wet bar and lounge area sit off the atrium. The black-hued master suite has a massive walk-in closet for a total of five bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms.
Outdoors, the landscaped grounds center on a piano-shaped swimming pool with a spa and waterfall feature. A pair of patios, outdoor fireplaces and custom torch lighting fill out the setting.
Views from the more than quarter-acre site take in the valley and city lights.
Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson & Associates holds the listing.
Lee, 54, is a founding member of Motley Crue and the rock band Methods of Mayhem. More recently, the drummer-songwriter has collaborated with artists such as the Bloody Beetroots, Courtney Love and the Smashing Pumpkins.
