Live Like a Rockstar at This $9.9M Art Nouveau-Esque Masterpiece in L.A. Once Home to Iconic Musicians

A rocking property is on the market in Los Angeles. This $9,885,000 home has been a hit among iconic rockstars. Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Michael “Flea” Balzary, who seems to have an appreciation for iconic architecture, once owned the striking abode. Other former residents include Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and The Velvet Underground.

Architect A.F. Leicht designed this 1920s home, which is Art Nouveau meets Spanish-style meets an Assyrian-style castle. It even has its own observation tower with an attached roof terrace that rivals the nearby Griffith Observatory, with panoramic views of the city and the ocean always on display. Starring a 26-foot-tall foyer, cave-like passages, and gold-kissed living spaces, the 5,582-square-foot home is inarguably full of character.

Totaling five bedroom suites and six bathrooms, there is more than enough space for band members to crash should another musician saunter in next. The property includes a gated motor court and garage, a studio, a guest apartment residence, and a basketball court. There is even enough lot space to continue to grow the living spaces since the hillside property spans 2.5 acres.

For those who “Can’t Stop” looking at this property and it tops their real estate charts, Daria Greenbaum of Compass holds the listing. It’s already active under contract, but that doesn’t mean it still couldn’t wind up in your hands since real estate dealings are anything but predictable.
