You Can Buy Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ L.A. Estate — If You Have $6.8 Million
By Scott T. Sterling
Maybe you’re a massive Red Hot Chili Peppers fan looking to buy a house in the Los Angeles area — oh, and you’re loaded, too.
If so, the band’s notorious bass player Flea is selling his estate in the city’s Tony Griffith Park area for just under $7 million.
According to Curbed Los Angeles, the property is packed with local history. It was built in 1925 by Van Griffith, the son of Griffith J. Griffith, the original benefactor for nearby Griffith Park, home to all sorts of attractions, including the Griffith Observatory and popular outdoor concert venue, the Greek Theatre.
The .78-acre location is loaded with amenities, such as a saltwater swimming pool and a loggia with an outdoor fireplace. The main house features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and even a speakeasy. The guest house was recently remodeled, with two bedrooms and a wood-burning fireplace. Prospective buyers can see more photos and set an appointment to view the property at Estately.com.
After kicking off the year with a massive Super Bowl performance with Bruno Mars, the Chili Peppers have been keeping busy with a headlining performance last month at England’s Isle of Wight Festival, which was met with rave reviews.
The band was in a generous mood earlier this month by offering fans a free live EP, personally curated by drummer Chad Smith (or maybe it was Will Ferrell?). Featuring concert versions of Blood Sugar Sex Magik classics “Breaking the Girl” and “The Power of Equality” next to three songs from 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, the EP can be downloaded here.
