Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx Sells His Palatial House in Los Angeles for a Little Over $5 Million

Rock and roll icon and three-time bestselling author Nikki Sixx has just unloaded his Westlake Village home.

Sixx — best known as the co-founder, bassist, and  songwriter of  Mötley Crüe, which he started alongside drummer Tommy Lee —listed the home last year for $5,699,000.

Speaking of which, Tommy Lee has also made quite the upgrade - house-wise. Just a few months back, the drummer paid $4.15 million for a Japanese-inspired sanctuary home. 

As for Sixx, the sale marks another success in his busy fall line-up: his band, Sixx:A.M. is releasing a new ‘best hits’ album, and he also has a new memoir book coming out.

The stately home sits on a 1.2-acre lot nestled behind guard gates at the North Ranch Country Club Estates in Westlake Village — about 40 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.

Fit for rock royalty, the home offers  the utmost privacy, grandeur and style.

It has a dramatic entry gallery that opens up to a stately library/game room, a large dining room and an imposing living room.

The Mediterranean-style mansion has 5 bedrooms, including a towering master suite equipped with a formal entry, and its own private living room with fireplace.

There’s also a beautifully appointed home office, and an incredible private theater that look like it's paying homage to the world of rock.

In fact, many rooms of the house sport dramatic, blood-red walls that have a striking effect and set it apart from your regular million-dollar mansion.

They seem to clearly spell out that this home was specially-made for a rock star!

The house is surrounded by lush greenery and an idyllic setting —  which it puts to good use with many outdoor amenities.

That includes a pool with a hot tub, a cabana, as well as plenty of lounging areas.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Nikki Sixx’s decision to sell the property came as the rocker decided to leave California altogether.

Sixx announced last year that he’ll be moving out of Los Angeles, the city where he first found fame with Mötley Crüe in the early ’80s, to Wyoming. “I felt maybe it was time and  a better place to raise my daughter.”
