The Beach Boys' Mike Love has put his sprawling Southern California property up for sale. Asking price for the three-story, 17,515 square foot home is $8.65 million.
Described in its official listing as a “state of the art, luxurious, one-of-a-kind” home, the compound boasts a long list of impressive features.
Custom wrought iron front doors open to an expansive grand foyer, featuring dual staircases. An adjacent living room boasts a fireplace and formal bar, while the oversized chef's kitchen includes a butler's pantry, breakfast nook and professional grade appliances.

A jacuzzi, swim up bar and outdoor living room further adorn the space, while a state-of-the-art BBQ kitchen area makes it perfect for entertaining.
A little further from the home is the property’s tennis court, featuring its own locker room and restroom. The compound also includes a detached guesthouse, with its own dedicated balcony and outdoor spa area.
Located in Rancho Santa Fe, just north of San Diego, the house is part of an exclusive gated community. Though Love is not directly named on the home’s official listing, the agent notes that the property was “owned by a legendary music artist.”
