Tommy Lee may be the best know as an amazing drummer, but he also has fantastic taste in houses. He was a founding member of the rock band Mötley Crüe, who saw great success with songs like Smoking In The Boys Room and Dr. Feelgood. You will definitely feel good after looking at this three-level home that sits high on a hill in a cul-de-sac in Calabasas, California.

Tommy Lee bought this home about ten years ago and paid $5.85 million for it. He put it on the market a few years back for $6 million but now has dropped the price. He is now selling this showstopping house for $4.59 million.
This house has picturesque views of the city as well as being a masterpiece all on its own. It was built in 1987 with the best materials and premier construction. This house is 9,991 square foot has an atrium in the middle that is complete with foliage and palms. The atrium has a retractable roof giving you all the sunlight you desire. No matter what room you are in, they all open up to the atrium providing you the feeling of being completely open and outside even when you are not.
If you love water, as I do, then you will feel at home here as the water is the central theme running throughout the house. The atrium has waterfalls indoors, while on the outside you can find a koi pond and a stone saltwater spa. No musician’s house would be complete without a saltwater pool that is in the shape of a piano.
The inside of this house is just as stunning as the outside. Every room is open and full of air and life. It has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, so there is plenty of room for guests without anyone needing to share space. The master suite is on the main level of the house so it is easily accessible and opens up directly to the terrace spa and piano-shaped pool. What a great way to unwind after a long day at work.
The main floor also has a large living room and a much smaller and more intimate family room. This space includes a lounge area and room for a piano. There are a formal dining room and an expansive chef’s kitchen. While the main floor is clearly intended for entertaining friends and family, there is also a private office that could also be used as a library. This room also has a private terrace for moments of quiet concentration.
There is also a lower level to the house where a musician’s dream really comes true. It has a professional recording studio the is complete with an isolation booth and control room. You could mix your next big hit in your own home. It also contains a screening room with a concession stand and a wine tasting area. There is a dining room on the lower level. Also included on the lower level is the garage and storage space.
