Founding member of Mötley Crüe, drummer Tommy Lee, has proven good taste when it comes to picking eye-watering real estate. One of the most stunning homes in celebrity-rich Calabasas, California, Lee has recently put his home on the market for $4.59 million.
Perched on a hill with city-light views, the 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 koi pond, palms and foliage, 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 gives an abundance of fresh air as it drifts down from the hills. Rooms include spacious living room, intimate family room area for lounging around a piano, formal dining, 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 with 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. The garage and storage space are also on the bottom level.
Lee, who has been married to both Heather Locklear and Pamela Anderson and engaged to model Bobbie Brown and Prince’s ex-wife Mayte Garcia, 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 beautiful home, magnificent real estate.
Celebrities such as the Kardashian clan, Justin Bieber, Drake and Miley Cyrus have set their sites on the new celebrity enclave of Calabasas to be among their peers and away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, though they are still close enough for a quick commute to the studios.
Tommy Lee’s multi-level atrium home with panoramic pool-terrace views of the city lights is now for sale. Priced at $4.59 million, the listing agents are Emil Hartoonian and Nicholas Siegfried of The Agency, Calabasas office.
