There’s fame in the floorboards of this Bel-Air home. Built half a century ago for Doors guitarist Robby Krieger and more recently owned by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, the Midcentury gem has surfaced for sale at $13.9 million.

Perched on 1.4 acres overlooking Los Angeles, the low-slung residence recalls the work of Midcentury architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and John Lautner. It’s been restored in recent years but still hangs on to its chic 1970s aesthetic with sharp angles, long hallways and quirky spaces lined with wood, stone and glass.

Five pillars mark the entry, leading into a 6,600-square-foot floor plan with terrazzo floors and dramatic beamed ceilings. Indoor-outdoor living is the emphasis here, as the single-story home wraps around an interior courtyard with a swimming pool and spa.


Other highlights include an oversize fireplace in the living room and modern wood kitchen. The primary suite, one of four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, adds two custom closets and two showers — one inside and one outside.

Patios and lawns lined with landscaping extend the living space outside. At the edge of the property, a curved lounge wraps around a fire pit.

Patty Best and Chad Lund of Douglas Elliman hold the listing.

A native of L.A., Krieger joined the Doors in 1965 and co-wrote hits such as “Light My Fire” and “Touch Me.” He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the band in 1993.
