After nearly four decades in Beverly Hills, KISS frontman Gene Simmons has listed his 16,000 square foot mansion for sale. This property has quite the storied history…but it also comes with two acres, a 60-foot waterslide, and so much more!
Let’s take a look inside this lavish pad to see what all the fuss is about. And before you ask—it unfortunately doesn’t come with any KISS memorabilia.
Explore Gene Simmons’ Longtime Residence in Benedict Canyon
Back in 1984, Gene Simmons purchased a private ranch home in Benedict Canyon, Beverly Hills for $1.34 million. But after 36 years, a multi-million dollar renovation, and lots of memories, it’s now on the market for a cool $22 million.
Extensively featured on their long-running reality series Gene Simmons Family Jewels, this palatial estate showcases seven bedrooms, seven baths, a pro-sized tennis court, a pool and patio area, and parking for more than 30 cars. Here’s what else it has to offer.
Unbelievable curb appeal
Although it may look fairly tame for the residence of an outrageous rockstar, Simmons designed every inch of his amazing home to his exact specifications. The timeless European design comes with some jaw-dropping curb appeal, as well as a professional tennis court adjacent to the front yard.
You’ll need to drive through towering security gates to reach the home’s motor court and trio of garages. Mature hedges on three sides and a wooded area directly behind the home provide privacy from prying eyes. However, this hasn’t stopped excited fans from trying to sneak a peek inside!
A grand main living area
Once you step inside this home, you’ll discover a foyer embellished with a 40-foot window and sweeping staircase. If you’re looking to rock and roll all night and party every day, the combined living and dining areas provide ample space for entertaining.
Need to prep a meal in style? The kitchen is right nearby, and it even has some informal seating by the island.
The perfect backyard
No tour of this home is complete without exploring the breathtaking backyard. The intimate patio surrounds a pool that’s perfect for your next outdoor get-together. Don’t forget to scope out the luxurious spa, too!
Prefer to relax away from all the excitement? This yard also comes equipped with a small pond, multiple balconies, and a covered eating area.
And of course…plenty of KISS-inspired decor!
It’s no secret that Gene Simmons is his own biggest fan. In fact, he even houses his personal hoard of KISS memorabilia in three of his bedrooms. Although his 5,000+ piece collection doesn’t come with the home, music enthusiasts can still marvel at everything from KISS-branded pinball machines to custom bass guitars.
