Live in the Former Pad of Metallica’s Kirk Hammett

Metallica guitarist (and San Francisco-native) Kirk Hammett resided at this four-story Pacific Heights mansion after snatching it up in 1993 for $2.56 million. Hammett unloaded the pad in 2009 and the new owners, who remodeled the manse, just listed the upscale house for a whopping $9.25 million, reports Curbed. Take a tour of this elegant Pac Heights home, which has been transformed into a house that looks nothing like one a big time rock star would ever live in.

The home in its present state belies any thoughts about what a "rock star's home" might look like. Tasteful updates continue throughout the home.

Built in 1900, the owners who purchased the spread from Hammett "remodeled the home throughout with designer finishes while carefully maintaining its architectural relevance," according to the public listing. Basically, despite its previous tenants, the home is now totally lacking in any rock star finishes or designs.

A look at the screening room in the swanky mansion. The room is certainly large enough to install a bigger screen or television.

The home boasts impressive views of the Bay -- the same sweet views are also visible from many rooms in the home since the Georgian mansion is fully detached.
