The long-haired, tea-shaded rocker better known as the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, is notorious for house-hopping his way through California. He may have lived through several mega-mansions, but he and Sharon have recently waved goodbye to his LA family home for good.
The vintage yet well-kept mansions in Hancock Park offer large lawns and properties fit for any divine celebrity longing to rest their crowns on a bed of gold. And one such heavy metal Grammy-winner, famous for his crazy antics on stage and off, has bid farewell to his property for $18 million.
One thing you should know, though, is that the Godfather of heavy metal, Ozzy Osbourne, has an estimated net worth of $245 million, so letting go of his Los Angeles baby should cough up some well-deserved pocket money for his next great adventure.
The music legend with a tragic backstory Osbourne is a legendary English rock star. As frontman for this influential British band, Ozzy helped define early metal music in the 1900s thanks to his lead singing role in Black Sabbath. But despite his British roots, he prefers to call Los Angeles home these days.
Since his family’s iconic reality TV show, The Osbournes, it would appear most of their real estate stayed in the United States. And it was here that the world enjoyed an insight into the legendary’s back life.
You may be surprised that half of his Hollywood mansions don’t look as edgy as his flamboyant self. In fact, he transformed most of his interior designs from Gothic-inspired to French aesthetics. However, his most prolonged stay in the Hancock neighbourhood has ended as the Spanish Colonial-style house, initially built in the 1930s, is officially on the market.
The six-bedroom bathroom mansion is 11000 square feet and boasts a double-height entryway leading to the dining and grand living room. The gated property has three levels, all clipped together by an elevator leading to a floor with a plush red screening room wrapped in velvet.
Outside, the half-acre garden holds a promising pool and fountain area. Ozzy and his wife, Sharon’s home also has a contemporary kitchen decked out in marble for those who love to wine and dine.
The 73-year-old may be moving away from his mega-mansion, but Ozzy Osbourne still owns two more condos in the LA Sierra Towers skyscraper to lounge about in.
