Nuno Bettencourt, the renowned guitarist of the rock band Extreme, has listed his luxurious Los Angeles residence for sale, as reported by Wendy Bowman in the Robb Report. The  57-year-old musician has set a price of $3.95 million on his house. This home sits quietly in the upscale Beachwood Canyon area and is going for a lot more than the $2.1 million he paid for it back in April 2013. 

As soon as you step onto the property, you’re surrounded by incredible views. You can see all around, from the busy streets of downtown Los Angeles to the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean. You can also spot famous landmarks like the Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory, and Lake Hollywood, making it clear that Bettencourt’s home is in a special spot.

The top part of the house has a swimming pool area that feels like a resort, with a guest house next to it where music was once made. The pool, paired with an inviting spa and stylish cabana, fosters an air of sophistication and leisure. Inside the main house, there’s plenty of room and natural light, and the high ceilings make it feel grand and luxurious.

Inside, the home’s kitchen is a chef’s dream, with lots of space to cook and entertain. Right next to it is a big dining room perfect for fancy dinner parties. The main bedroom is like a little getaway all on its own, with a cozy sitting area, a big closet you can walk into, and a private bathroom that even has a sauna to relax in. All around the house, you can find fancy touches like a steam room, an elevator, and a garage that fits three cars, showing off the modern design and careful detail that went into making this haven.

Beyond the confines of his residence, Bettencourt is a rock legend as the lead guitarist for Extreme. He’s grown to become a Grammy-nominated star who has made music with some of the biggest names, like Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West. He’s not just a performer; as CEO and co-founder of Atlantis Entertainment, he’s also a big deal in the music business.

Some of the best moments of his career include playing guitar with Queen at the Freddie Mercury tribute in 1992 and jamming with Steven Tyler at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2014. He also lit up the stage at the 2015 Grammy Awards with Sir Paul McCartney, Rihanna, and Kanye West. Nuno’s also helped make hits with stars like Rihanna and Janet Jackson and helped new artists make their mark in the music world.

Extreme’s impact on music is still strong. They just dropped their latest album, Six, with earMUSIC in June. Their songs even made it into the hit Netflix show Stranger Things, proving they’re still a big deal. The band from Boston has sold over 10 million records and hit number one numerous times on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. They’re a big deal worldwide, with over five million people listening to their music on Spotify monthly. 

Now, as Nuno Bettencourt decides to sell his amazing house, it opens a new chapter for the property. The next people to live there will get more than just a fancy house; they’ll be part of a home where lots of creative work has happened. 

The sale of the house, managed by Cindy Lorimer and Peter Lorimer of PLG Estates, is a chance for people who love great homes and rock music to own a piece of history. Everyone’s excited to see who the next owner of this top-tier spot in L.A will be.
