Poison’s Bret Michaels sells his rock-star-worthy digs in Calabasas


Poison singer Bret Michaels just got an early birthday present. The rocker has sold his spare house in a gated Calabasas community for $3,432,500.

The elegant Mediterranean two-story was only a temporary home. He bought the one-third acre property two years ago for $3.05 million and listed last year after he picked up a place in Westlake Village.

Still, during his short stay, Michaels outfitted the interiors with rock-star accents, including guitars, a grand piano and religious iconography. Built in 2006, the 6,797-square-foot house features vaulted ceilings, formal living and dining rooms, a media room, an office and a family room.


The master suite of the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home is tricked out with a sitting area, dual walk-in closets, a balcony, dual bathrooms and a gym.

A swimming pool with a spa sits off the back of the house.

Michaels, who will turn 53 on March 15, made his mark as frontman for the glam metal band starting in the early 1980s and has several solo albums. Last year, he released the compilation album “True Grit.” His hits include “All I Ever Needed,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and “Something to Believe In.”

The singer-songwriter-musician was the winning contestant on the reality show “Celebrity Apprentice 3,” starring presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Tomer Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty and Lynne Weiss of Coldwell Banker were the listing agents. Tracy Maltas of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.
