The Bay Area celebrity real estate market has been filled with stories recently. From rumors of Tom Cruise buying an $18 million house to the governor's pregnant San Francisco home hitting the market.
The "historic Georgian mansion," as it's billed, has its own website from which a soothing classical tune trickles forth— trusting, as the case may be, that Metallica probably isn't super conducive to the buying mood.
The four-story mansion has 8 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and a whole 9,057-square-feet. The asking price, which was $12.5 million back in 2005, is now a decidedly lighter $8,995,000, though still way above the $2.56 million Hammett paid in 1993.
Included in the house is an eat-in gourmet kitchen, billiards room, and a music studio, naturally. Not quite how you would've imagined a Metallica house, is it?
