Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt has sold his home in the Oakland suburb of Piedmont, California for $6.625 million. That's a little below the $6.8 million that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was asking for the property when it was listed in the spring, but $775,000 more than he paid for it in 2016.
Heidi Marchesotti of BHG Highland Partners, who held the listing, said about the property, “Spectacular views, privacy, a three-quarter-acre lot, and comfortable yet grand spaces set this home apart. It's difficult to find this sought-after combination in a home of this caliber.”
The gated, 6,712-square-foot house contains five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. The early California Mediterranean architecture features white stucco and clay tile, with tall ceilings, hardwood floors and hand-plastered walls. A spiral staircase with wrought-iron railings leads up to the second floor, while exposed beams and floor-to-ceiling windows make the living room stand out.
The Los Angeles Times says that this is the fourth house Dirnt has sold in the past three years, following sales of houses in the Southern California towns of Ojai, Newport Beach and Montecito.
Green Day hasn't released any new music since 2016's Revolution Radio. Reps for the band debunked a rumor earlier this week that the band was preparing to issue a new single next Friday (July 19th).
