Catch yourself saying “I gotta have you, oh yes I do” to this ranch-style residence? Well, you can look but you can’t touch, because Bret Michaels is already planning to have nothin’ but a good time at this just-like-new contemporary home. Per TMZ, the longtime Poison frontman has paid nearly $5.5 million in cash for a 1-acre spread tucked away in a gated Westlake Village community, on the outskirts of Los Angeles.
Built in 2019, and resting beyond a gated driveway, the single-story structure is fronted by a driveway that wraps around past a motorcourt and beneath a portico before emptying out at two attached garages with room for four cars. Inside, five bedrooms and six baths are sprawled across a little more than 5,400 square feet of living space adorned throughout with dark hardwood floors, high ceilings and designer light fixtures.
A covered entryway opens into a marble-clad foyer accommodating a glassy wine display. From there, the open floor plan flows to a formal living/dining area warmed by a fireplace, and beyond that is a spacious family room sporting a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, wet bar and walls of glass spilling out to a covered terrace ideal for al fresco entertaining. A casual dining area abuts the sleekly designed kitchen, which is outfitted with all-white cabinetry, an eat-in island and high-end stainless appliances.
Elsewhere is a sizable master retreat flaunting a sitting area, decorative fireplace and walk-in closet, as well as a huge bath equipped with dual vanities, a dressing area, soaking tub and glass-encased shower. And you won’t soon forget the entertainment-ready backyard, which hosts a secluded sitting area bolstered by a fountain and trellis, an expansive covered patio housing a fire-pit lounge area and built-in barbecue station, and a large pool and spa with a Baja shelf and fire feature. There’s also a full-sized basketball court.
In addition to his just-purchased house, Michaels’ primary residence remains a Calabasas home he bought for $4.8 million in 2020. That same year, he sold another Westlake Village property across the street from his new spread for around $4.3 million.
Both sides of the deal were repped by Jordan Cohen of Re/Max One.
