Red Hot Chili Pepper Anthony Kiedis Isn’t Giving Away His $10M Hawaii Home
Anthony Kiedis is selling his home in Hawaii for nearly $10 million, and the lavish seaside digs on Kauai's North Shore look like a luxury home buyer's dream. But the property owned by the 58-year-old Red Hot Chili Peppers singer has somewhat of an odd past.
The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath single-family residence is currently listed on the real estate website Rocket Homes for $9.98 million. Extravagant amenities include a master suite with a private porch (lanai), a master bathroom with a soaking tub and steam shower, a kids' room with built-in bunk beds, exotic woods, automated blinds, a dedicated office, a practically restaurant-grade kitchen, beach access and ocean views.

Records show that Kiedis bought the land for the home, then undeveloped and previously owned by actor Sylvester Stallone, for $2.6 million in 2001, as UCR noted on Tuesday (July 27).
But the Chili Peppers vocalist reportedly had difficulty finishing construction after archaeologists uncovered an ancient burial ground near the site in 2007. TMZ subsequently said the remains weren't discovered on Kiedis' lot but his next-door neighbor's. Regardless, some argued it was disrespectful to build near the location due to its history. Still, Kiedis got permission to finish his home in 2008.
That didn't stop onlookers from commenting on the ordeal. As reported by Kauai's The Garden Island at the time, one nearby resident asked, "Who would want to build their house on a known graveyard?" Another called it the "ultimate desecration."
Red Hot Chili Peppers' latest studio album, The Getaway, emerged in 2016. Since then, the band has welcomed former guitarist John Frusciante back into the fold, with a new album in the works.
RHCP drummer Chad Smith put his $15 million Hamptons home on the market last year.
