Green Day’s frontman, guitarist Billy Joe Armstrong, has just added his Oakland, California estate to the luxury market. The 5 bedroom Mediterranean / Normandy estate was built for Armstrong back in 1998 by architect Mark Becker and features over a half acre lot, pool with pool house and an open floor plan. Located in the Claremont Pines area of Oakland, the mansion has wonderful views for the San Francsico Bay. Boasting lots of unique ironwork, a rough-hewn beamed rotunda and, of course, a music studio, the home also includes a winding brick staircase. The remains of a 1911 'Red Gate' mansion designed by Julia Morgan.
While most of the house has been redecorated, there are a few vestiges of Billie Joes' taste, including a bathroom adjacent to the music studio festooned with concert flyers from the early days of Green Day's time at the famous 924 Gilman Street stage.
Billie Joe Armstrong was born in Oakland and was raised in Rodeo. Billie was 10 when he met fellow bandmate Mike Dirnt. At 15 years old, they formed a punk band, along with drummer John Kiffmeyer called Sweet Children. Later, Sweet Children was renamed Green Day. Additionally, Billie and his wife Adrienne co-own Adeline Records.Posted by Bruce Wagg on
