Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee bought a Zen-style home in Brentwood, Calif. For $ 4.15 million, which is unique in its architectural design.
“Serenity, behind the gate to this unique half-acre double lot, a truly one-of-a-kind architectural home, a modern Japanese-inspired sanctuary,” according to the listing. Brentwood is in Los Angeles County.
The four-bed, four-bath home spans 4,266 square feet and carries the Zen motif from inside to outside.
The residence, which sits in a scenic canyon for nearly half an acre, makes generous use of wraparound glass and detailed woodwork. The floor plan is spacious and open. The dining room, living room and kitchen open onto a swimming pool with waterfalls, terrace, fireplace, barbecue island and enclosed greenhouse-style garden.
The kitchen includes antique Japanese tansu cabinetry and Brazilian mahogany countertops, according to the listing.
In the main retreat there are ‘double height’ ceilings, skylight lighting, heated floors and fitted wardrobes, as well as a garden courtyard, double baths and custom closets.
There is an office bedroom with a spiral staircase that leads to a large yoga, art or media room.
The other two bedrooms occupy a separate wing.
Wide balconies overlook lush gardens of trees, rare plants, ferns, bamboos, a Koi pond, herb garden, waterfalls and paths with vast stones. There is also an authentic Japanese tea room.
“This compound is really a great getaway from everyday noise.”, According to Listing. “And when you decide, it becomes an artists’ paradise.”
The rocker is still selling his splendid Calabasas mansion, which the Sacramento Bee reported in May 2020. This six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home sits atop a spectacular hilltop and features a lush central atrium – lit by natural light – which opens to the sky with a retractable roof.
For the Brentwood sale, Emil Hartoonian of The Agency represented Lee. Marco Rufo of the Agency maintained the list.
The house was listed for $ 4.295 million.
