KISS bassist Gene Simmons owned this California mega mansion for sale. Take a look

A massive estate that was the longtime home of a rock music legend has landed on the real estate market in Beverly Hills, California, for a pretty penny.

The 16,390-square-foot residence — which is listed for $48 million — was the longtime home of iconic KISS bassist Gene Simmons, numerous media outlets, including Mansion Global, reported. Simmons originally sold it in 2021 for $16 million, and the price jump over the two-year period is due to a full renovation of the seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom estate.

“Showcasing unparalleled design, this masterpiece is accented with the finest materials — main level flooring all in natural Italian marble, custom made stone oak wood panels, lots of brass custom elements,” the listing on Realtor.com says.

“The grand, double-height entrance showcases the epitome of architectural precision with an expansive living area flooded with natural light illuminating from the custom iron windows. The open floor plan seamlessly integrates the perfect indoor and outdoor flow, overlooking 3 wide grassy backyards from every side of the house, creating an ideal ambiance for entertaining.”

Other features include:

  • Chef’s kitchen

  • Private primary balcony

  • Media room

  • Two primary bedrooms

  • “Knife-edge” pool

  • Parking for 30 cars

  • Outside BBQ spot

Simmons bought the home in 1986 for $1.34 million, and it was the setting of the A&E reality show that followed the bassist and his family around, titled “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Simmons was the co-founder of KISS and is known for his wild stage presence and makeup.
