Variety reports that Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and his wife Frankie Rayder has listed a 1930’s traditional in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, Calif.,for $2.997 million. The gap-toothed six-time Grammy winner and occasional actor, who popped up on silver screen in the summer 2017 sleeper hit “Baby Driver,” and his international fashion model wife, Frankie Rayder, acquired the modest-by-rock-star-standards residence not quite four years ago for $2.47 million. The two-story residence, a not-unpleasantly boxy, semi-Colonial dipped in a strong tincture of Streamline Moderne that is shyly set but not entirely invisible behind a towering hedgerow and secured gates on a just over one-quarter of an acre corner parcel just south of the eastern flank of Griffith Park, contains four and potentially five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 3,561-square-feet of art-filled interiors.
Flea and Rayder continue to own a two-plus acre bluff-top compound along Malibu’s Encinal Bluffs they purchased in 2006 for $9.98 million, are certainly no strangers to the property gossip columns. Prior to their coupling, Flea once owned a secluded Hollywood Hills home later owned by Jake Gyllenhaal and in 2008 the couple paid $3.85 million for a Los Feliz estate they sold in 2010 for just under $6 million to comedian Jack Black. More recently, the Flea and his wife owned the so-called Van Griffith Estate, a gated Los Feliz compound that backs up to Griffith Park they picked up in July 2011 for $4.45 million and sold just over three years later for $6 million. As was sussed out by property snitch Yolanda Yakketyyak, the Van Griffith estate was recently hoovered up by property-mad mega-producer Megan Ellison for $7.75 million.
