David Draiman, the lead singer of the band Disturbed, has listed his castle-like house in Los Angeles' Northridge area for $2,849,000.
The Los Angeles Times' Ruth Ryon yesterday broke the story of Draiman placing the castle, at 17231 Gresham Street, on the market. Draiman purchased the house in late 2005 for $2,535,000, according to public records.
Built in 1992 (or as the Times put it, transformed in 1992 from a "former nondescript tract house"), the six-bedroom, 6,870-square-foot castle has seven baths, a vaulted and beamed ceilings, grand fireplaces with antique mantels, theater chandeliers, stained glass, leaded windows, a master suite with an expansive bay window seat and a sumptuous bath, a secret door that leads to an exercise room and an office, and a kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator, granite counters and a Viking stove, according to listing information. Other features include a 3,000-square-foot attic with windows, a north/south tennis court, a guest house, a pool with a lap lane, a koi pond, a waterfall, and gargoyles everywhere, according to listing information. Still other features include a great room with a 24-foot-high ceiling, barrel-vaulted halls, turrets, dragons and griffins, the Times reported. The castle sits on a 0.67-acre lot, according to public records.
It's unclear where Draiman is going. He sold a 3,864-square-foot house at 15491 Del Gado Drive in Los Angeles' Sherman Oaks area late last year for $1,525,000, according to public records.
