For decades now, Metallica has been the road music for us bikers. Some of us cruised on our very first motorcycles to Metallica in the 1980’s, back when the heavy metal band was fresh on the music scene. Fast forward several years later, and the band’s lead guitarist Kirk Hammett is now selling his gorgeous oceanside San Francisco, CA home. A life-long rock music career can afford you what this breath-taking home boasts, and Kirk is banking on what this home will profit him when it sells.
The home, which resides in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood, comes with the price tag of a whopping $16 million. The Spanish Colonial beauty, at 320 Sea Cliff Avenue, is currently one of the most expensive publicly listed homes in the city – it was built in 1926, and comes with several features not found in the average American home today – including a massive courtyard entryway and custom bronzed mermaid fountain. It boasts a sunken sun room, a grand spiral staircase (which is crowned by a wrought-iron chandelier), and French doors that reveal an impressive multi-level oceanfront flagstone patio. The coastal views alone are a major part of what the lucky buyer will be paying for with this property.
Just think, if you had $16 million to spend on this home, you could live where riding your bike every day is an actual reality, not just a dream. And you’d be living in a house owned by one of Metallica’s founding members. How could would that be?! Take a look at the exquisite home in the gallery below, and tell us how much you wish you could afford to buy Kirk Hammett’s house!
