Geezer Butler, bassist of the iconic Black Sabbath, has listed his newly-built house for $4.79 million. Taking a peek inside, fans are likely shocked, after seeing the contradictory farmhouse style of this rock-and-roll legend’s home. The 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 6,210-square-foot home is located out in Encino in the prestigious gated community Amestoy Estates. The San Fernando Valley property itself is on one acre of lush land and is truly an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.
Butler’s decision to move out of his Encino home comes just after Black Sabbath’s reissue of Technical Ecstasy. The deluxe edition of their seventh studio album comes as a four-CD or five-LP collection, featuring favorites like “Dirty Women” and “Rock ‘n’ Roll Doctor.”
Nestled back on its own long private driveway off of the street and away from the surrounding neighbors, the home has a cozy, warm feeling with a much-needed quietness. With an open floor plan and high ceilings, the space has an inviting atmosphere that makes anyone feel connected even if they are spread out between the multiple living rooms or the sleek gourmet kitchen. It is clear that Butler appreciated his quality time with his family because there is even a less formal breakfast area next to the stunning dining room.
Throughout the property, you will find a full basketball court, movie theater, wine cellar and resort-like pool with a spa. These luxurious amenities truly make the home so much more desirable for any family that is looking for the perfect entertainment space. The cherry-on-top of the house is the master bedroom with its own private balcony that feels like a get away when you close your doors at night. With double vanities and an elegant soaking tub in the bathroom and a to-die-for walk-in closet, what more can you ask for?
Listing agents Tomer Fridman of The Fridman Group at Compass and Angel Salvador of The Beverly Hills Estates should have no problem selling this luxurious space. In addition to the property’s high attraction value, it is located in one of the best neighborhoods that is perfectly located next to some of L.A.’s best shopping and dining options.
