Founding member of Mötley Crüe, drummer Tommy Lee his proven good taste when it comes to picking eye-watering real estate. Lee has recently put his LA-area hilltop residence on the market for $4.59 million. It is described as one of the most stunning homes in celebrity-rich Calabasas, California, also home to Justin Bieber, Drake, Katie Holmes, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Several members of the Kardashian clan live in nearby Hidden Hills.
With city-light views, Tommy’s 9,991-square-foot, six-bedroom, eight-bath home was built in 1987 as the personal residence of the developer of Vista Point in Calabasas, built with a sharp eye on quality of construction and materials. With many levels encircling a large central atrium with a koi pond, palms and foliage, its interior rooms are large, open and airy with long, wide views across the atrium. The retractable atrium roof allows sunlight to drift through the rooms, and an abundance of fresh air as it drifts down from the nearby hills. Rooms include a spacious living room, intimate family room area for lounging around a piano, formal dining, a huge chef’s kitchen and an office/library with a private terrace. All main rooms open to the dramatic atrium and are scaled for entertaining. The master suite is on the main level and opens to the outdoor pool and spa terrace. The home’s lower level houses a musician’s dream: a large professional recording studio with isolation booths and a control room. Also on the lower level is a screening room with concession stand and a wine-tasting and dining room.
Lee was one of the founding members of Mötley Crüe and the rap-metal-band Methods of Mayhem. As one of Hollywood’s bad boys, Lee has a penchant for attracting women, controversial situations and in the case of his distinctively designed home, top-notch real estate.
Priced at $4.59 million, Tommy Lee’s home is listed with Emil Hartoonian and Nichalos Siegfried of The Agency, Calabasas office.
