Welcome to another edition of Heavy Metal Real Estate, where we explore how rock stars live by way of their real estate listings.
Previously, we've seen the lavish homes of Maynard from Tool, the Hawaii penthouse belonging to Disturbed's David Draiman, Metallica's James Hetfield, Rob Zombie, Trent Reznor's old Beverly Hills home, Dave Mustaine's $5 million mansion and Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris' opulent pad. Today we look at the way Kirk Hammett lives.
After reading the Curbed listing for Kirk Hammet's San Francisco home in the Sea Cliff area, only one thing came to mind: damn, this is a nice house.
Hammett is selling the Spanish Colonial-style house, which is being listed at $16 million. No word on why he's selling, but it's the fourth most expensive listing in the city – which is considered one of the top two or three most expensive cities in the country. Curbed writes the house was built in 1926 and is a "four-bed, four-and-a-half-bath, three-story affair perched above China Beach." Coincidentally, the homes next to Hammett are also for sale. Check out these photos:
Just to give you an idea of how much Hammett stands to make from this sale, if it all goes through, Curbed writes "320 Sea Cliff last sold in 2010 for $8 million. When you adjust for inflation, that was itself roughly double its 2003 sale price of $3.1 million." Yea, it makes sense that the listing has its own unique domain URL now, doesn't it?
