Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has listed his home in the historic Arden Park district of Detroit for $899,900.

Borland and Queen Kwong multi-instrumentalist Carré Callaway bought the limestone mansion five years ago for $500,000 and undertook a renovation and restoration of the nearly century-old residence. The former couple’s renovation project was featured on the DIY Network show “Sight Unseen.”

The seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home retains its original fixtures and finishes while introducing modern updates in the kitchen and bathrooms. An original built-in buffet anchors the far wall in the dining room, and the living room has a period tiled fireplace.

The lower level, which serves as a rec room, has a drinking fountain, a sauna and a wet bar.

The home, built in 1924, sits on nearly half an acre of grounds. A detached garage lies in the back of the property.

Borland, 45, joined Limp Bizkit in the early 1990s and also performs with the industrial rock group Black Light Burns and the metal band Big Dumb Face. Earlier this year, he released “Eat the Day,” a demo album launched by Borland and his brother, Scott, nearly two decades ago.

Kenan Bakirci of Keller Williams Realty holds the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
