Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Michael Peter Balzary, aka Flea, fancies himself a real estate aficionado. Over the years, he has amassed quite the SoCal collection of estates, including his former Los Feliz home which has now returned to market with an asking price of $9.885 million.
Offering almost two acres of gardens, the grand art nouveau mansion boasts five bedrooms and seven baths with more than 5,500 square feet of living space. Interior details emanate from Egyptian-inspired geometric pillars and repeating arched passageways overlooked by curving gilded ceilings.
With panoramic city views from Downtown to the ocean, standout features of the home include the observation tower and expansive roof terrace. The gated motorcourt and porte-cochere lead to a separate garage, studio and guest apartment residence.
Meandering pathways guide you to gardens, a basketball court, and an immense second flat lot for infinite potential to create more living space or construct a residential destination to enhance the inspired compound setting.
