As the frontman for Mötley Crüe, you might expect Vince Neil to have an edgy home. After all, the heavy metal phenom recorded controversial hits like Shout at the Devil. However, the look of his Danville mansion is more genteel palace meets Las Vegas than rockstar raunchy. The Mediterranean-inspired home just hit the market, and it's asking for $2.575 million. We wrote about the home last week, but for a very different reason: It made the East Bay's list of top water-wasters.
According to a report from East Bay Municipal Utility District (EMBUD), Neil's made the list by using 2,293 gallons per day. (We assume he has just one.)
Perhaps some of the features of the over-the-top glam mansion could be to blame. Along with four bedrooms and five full baths, you get a solar pool with an elaborate mosaic bottom and arching water jets; a water fall, and balconies that overlook landscaping that's best described as Tuscany meets tropical meets NorCal.
It also features an outdoor kitchen, scrolling metal work, and a host of chandeliers. We counted six large light fixtures dripping with cut crystal in various rooms.
The Bay Area News Group is reporting that the asking price is less than the singer paid for the mansion. According to public records, the property was purchased for $2.825 million back in 2007.
