Mike Dirnt of Green Day is tuning into the Bay Area market. His stately Mediterranean-style home of three years is up for grabs in Piedmont for $6.8 million.
Set on three-quarters of an acre, the gated estate centers on a 6,712-square-foot home built in 1927. Beamed ceilings, hardwood floors and thick hand-plastered walls keep the residence in touch with its roots, and the remodeled kitchen brings things into the 21st century.
A sweeping staircase leads upstairs, where a master suite with paneled walls expands to a column-lined terrace. It’s one of five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in the two-story floor plan.
Arches frame the loggia out back, which descends to a trellis-topped flagstone patio space with a swimming pool and spa. The manicured grounds also hold a fountain and fire pit.
Heidi Marchesotti of BHG Highland Partners holds the listing.
