Kirk Hammett’s Mansion Is for Sale
The 4,140-square-foot San Francisco mansion belonging to Metallica's Kirk Hammett is up for sale. Hammett is asking $13 million for the property, located in the Sea Cliff neighborhood.
As noted by Curbed San Francisco, it's the second time he's listed the house, which is located at 308 Sea Cliff Ave. Last year, Hammett put it on the market with a price of $16 million. With no takers, he ended up taking $3 million off the price. Hammett also owns the place next door, 320 Sea Cliff Ave., which has likewise been on the market for $16 million, Curbed San Francisco said. Hammett purchased it in 2005 for $5.7 million, with Metallica's lawyer, Howard E. King, named on the deed.
The listing at Pacific Union added that the three-story, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom Neo-Classical house was built in 1922. The home "presents a new dimension of possibilities and sophisticated living," according to Pacific Union. "Rich with Old World architecture and boasting majestic world-class views of China Beach, the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Headlands, this gated home offers 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, formal living room, dining room, family room, large kitchen with breakfast nook, bonus room, grand spiral staircase, lovely manicured garden, cliffside ocean view garden and more. This is the perfect opportunity for buyers seeking to create their own masterpiece."
You can see pictures of the house below. The home, and especially those views, are undoubtedly stunning, but we're not really sure what to make of that green bathroom.
