Flea is selling his Los Angeles mansion

You can own the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist's home for £4 million

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has put his home in Los Angeles up for sale, with an asking price of $6.8 million (£3.97 million).

Flea bought the four-bedroom house, which was built in 1925, for $4.5 million (£2.65 million) in 2011.

According to the listing by sellers Estately, the house has four bathrooms, a library, a swimming pool, a spa and a bar. It also boasts a two-bedroom guest house on the property, as well as redwood and olive trees and views of the nearby Griffith Park.

Having headlined Isle Of Wight Festival in June, Red Hot Chili Peppers revealed recently that they are working on a new album, the follow-up to 2011’s I’m With You. According to drummer Chad Smith, the band are “always trying to change and grow and do new stuff”, adding: “So we don’t make the record we did three years ago, we’re going to make something different. And you never know what that’s going to be.”

Flea has also formed a band, Antemasque, with Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta. Their self-titled debut album was released last week (July 1).
