Outside San Francisco, a 13,000-square-foot mansion on the Tiburon peninsula is making some noise in the real estate market. It’s the home of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, and it’s up for sale at $12 million.
Records show the rocker picked up the property in 1993, which was two years after the iconic heavy metal band released their acclaimed eponymous album.
Set behind gates, the hilltop compound comprises three parcels across two acres for extra privacy. Glass fills the home, taking in commanding views of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco skyline.
Past a landscaped courtyard, double doors enter into a marble-washed foyer. There are about 25 rooms in total, including six bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, a library, sauna, movie theater, underground basketball/squash court and, of course, a recording studio.
Hardwood lines the open floor plan, connecting a center-island kitchen to a living room with a wet bar. A sunny breakfast nook expands to a spacious terrace, which descends to a swimming pool and spa.
Walls of windows fill the master suite, and the sleek bathroom is anchored by a spa tub with a fish tank.
