Gene Simmons Wants to Kiss His Beverly Hills Home Goodbye for the Price of $22M
For the first time ever, the estate of KISS frontman Gene Simmons is on the market. Owned by the rockstar for almost forty years, the opulent home sits on a coveted swath of land along Benedict Canyon in Beverly Hills. Sprawling in size and ludicrously lush with luxury amenities, the home is listed for $22 million.
Although Simmons has owned the address since the ‘80’s, the main house that currently stands on the property was built more recently in 2000. Spanning 16,000 square feet, with 7 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, and 2 half-bathrooms, the palatial home basks in its own grandeur from entry. The 40-foot foyer, with its grand and curving staircase, connects via a slender hallway to the great room. Spread across two levels, with double-height windows shining light across the entire affair, the space seeps regality.
The outdoor spaces are no less impressive, with a 60-foot water slide and professional-sized tennis court supplying ample opportunity for fun. With parking for 35 cars, the ultimate parties can be thrown with ease and it is more than possible to rock and roll all night here as KISS might do.
It seems the rockstar is leaving for one main reason, according to the Wall Street Journal. Simmons is hoping to kiss the high taxes of Beverly Hills goodbye with this sale. The property is listed with Douglas Elliman’s Josh and Matt Altman.
