Live Like a Rockstar in Novato– Metallica Founder’s Former Home Hits the Market, $3.4MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
A founding member of Metallica lived here for about a decade until selling it to the current owners in 2003– right about the time the band’s St. Anger album came out and before he went into rehab.

Would make a great media room:
On five acres, and gated (of course) the 4-bed, 3-bath, 3-half bath house is asking $3.4M. Don’t expect any open houses. More images at the Sotheby’s site.
