Bass guitar player Michael Balzary, better known to fans as Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, has listed his bluff-top Malibu home at $13,676,000.

With unobstructed ocean, coastline and beach views, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom house sits on two flat acres. A private road and staircase provide access to the water. The property has expansive lawns, mature trees, two guesthouses and a spa surrounded by a wooden observation deck. There's an outdoor living room, bar and dining area.

The more than 2,700-square-foot house, built in 1980, has an open floor plan, rough-hewn beamed ceilings and walls of glass. Guitars cover a wall in the music room in photos at the home's website. Flea bought the home in 2006 for $9.98 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

"It's the beautifulest residence of mega-fun and peace," said the rocker.

Flea, 46, will be moving to a Los Feliz home that he bought about a year ago and just finished restoring. But he likes having a place near the beach to surf, his real estate agents said, and he owns another Malibu property where he will be building a house.

He is a founding member of the six-time Grammy-winning band, which has produced nine studio albums since it formed in 1983 and has sold millions of copies worldwide. Flea co-founded the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, which supports affordable music education for children. A Lakers fan, he sang the national anthem and performed a guitar solo at a home game in mid-May.

Sherri Rogers and Konstantine Valissarakos of Sotheby's International Realty, Los Feliz, have the listing.
