Here’s your chance to live like a rock star — if you’ve got a cool $9.8 million lying around, since that’s the latest price of Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea’s compound in the Los Angeles foothills.
The unique mid-century-style house has a pool, a cabin and other structures. This suits the quirky design tastes of the legendary bassist.
Flea purchased the eye-catching pad four years ago. It was designed by Richard Neutra and still looks as modern and futuristic today as it did back in 1950s.
The property features a seven-sided, spaceship-like structure that Michael Maltzan designed. It boasts a blue, curved tile wall bathroom and at most one subterranean windows.
The Maltzan-designed, heptagon structure features light wood elements and lots of natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows.
The property itself is packed with stylish sundries of the rock n’roll lifestyle, like a Neutra-designed sofa system featuring a built-in record player and concealed speakers (part of the original property).
The property’s third structure is seriously cool in its own right: It’s a redwood cabin made from locally sourced trees, complete with a loft and an outdoor shower.
The 5.7-acre property is as unique as any in the L.A. market, or just about anywhere else — the blending of futuristic and mid-century touches doesn’t get much better, with that nearly $10 million price tag to match.
The longtime Chili Peppers rocker, who recently bought a Malibu mansion, might be right to part with yet another property, considering the months he’s spent on the road touring the band’s 2022 LPs Unlimited Love Return to the Dream Canteen.
It’s good news for Chili Peppers fans that those two LPs sound as fresh and electric (yet classically funky) as ever, not unlike Flea himself. Suffice to say, the lucky eventual buyer is inheriting one rockin’ piece of real estate.
