Guns N’ Roses’ Slash tones down and relists his villa in Mulholland Estates

Top hat-wearing rocker Slash is, once again, swinging his axe away from the stage.

The guitarist of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver fame has trimmed the price of his home in gated Mulholland Estates to $9.499 million, down from $10.495 million earlier this year. The house had been off the market for about a month, and is now being relisted with Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson Associates.

The Mediterranean villa, built in 2005, has been dressed down this time around. Gone from the 11,000 square feet of interiors are the pirate ship-shaped chandeliers, gothic fixtures and cheetah-print carpet. The formal dining room retains its walls of antique mirrors, but a neutral paint tone has replaced the previous plastered blue hue.


Other living areas include a chef’s kitchen with a pair of stone-topped islands, a family room with a curved wet bar, an office/den and a master suite complete with a stone fireplace. There are seven bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in all.

Despite the changes, there’s at least one room still fit for a rock star: A lower-level lounge — styled with black carpeting and a wallpaper of patterned skulls — has a DJ booth, a soundproof recording studio, a screening room and custom LED lighting. There’s even a steel pole for dancing.

Outdoors, grounds of about half an acre are prime for entertaining with a covered loggia, a fireplace, a built-in barbecue and a swimming pool and spa. A skateboard halfpipe has been replaced with a beach volleyball court.

The 51-year-old Slash was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N’ Roses in 2012. He reunited with original bandmates Axl Rose and Duff McKagan for a reunion tour, which concluded its second leg this week.

He bought the house seven years ago for $7.3 million, records show.
