Aging (but somehow endearing) rocker Tommy Lee has paid an undisclosed price for an 8,841-square-foot house in Calabasas, Calif. that had been listed for $5,750,000.
First off, mad, mad props to our friends over at the Real Estalker for breaking the story of Lee's purchase a few weeks ago. Public records at the time hadn't shown Your Mama evidence of a sale yet, but they now do indeed show that Lee purchased the house on July 6, and that the transaction was recorded on August 13. The purchase price won't be available for a few more weeks (and we'll of course provide it when we get it). We should note, however, that the rocker took out a $4,280,000 mortgage. If that mortgage was 80 percent of the house's sale price -- as is often the case in celebrity real estate -- that would mean that Lee paid $5,350,000 for the home.
About the house itself, it was built in 1987 and remodeled in 2005. Located at 24359 La Masina Court in Calabasas, the house has a 3,000-square-foot underground garage with space for 12 cars. Other features include six bedrooms, seven and a half baths, a three-story atrium, an indoor koi pond, walnut and travertine floors, granite slabs, copper doors, etched glass, wrought iron accents, and beamed ceilings, according to listing information. The house sits on a 0.67-acre lot, according to public records.
Where had Lee been living previously? We're not certain, but we do know that he sold his last house, at 31341 Mulholland Way in nearby Malibu, in late 2004 for $2,475,000, according to public records. Lee had paid $800,000 in 1995 for that Moorish-style, 7,462-square-foot house on 2.49 acres, according to public records. The house had made the news back in 2001, when a 4-year-old boy died after accidentally drowning in the house's swimming pool during a birthday party.
