BEVERLY HILLS—Late rock musician Chris Cornell’s Beverly Hills estate has been listed for $9.85 million.
The Soundgarden vocalist resided in the home with his wife Vickey Karayiannis and the pair lived there from 2005 to 2013. Cornell passed away after hanging himself following a show in Detroit. His bodyguard, Martin Kirstin, found him inside a suite at the MGM Grand Resort and Casino.
Cornel and Karayiannis initially purchased the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home for $4.22 million. The home was previously owned by Belgian pop singer Christine Snider-Decroix, before her move to Miami.
The estate spans over 5,800 square feet and is hidden behind a private gate. The home is newly renovated with 20-foot ceilings and handmade Italian chandeliers. There is a formal dining room with an open-concept plane and a minimalist kitchen with sleek white finishes.
The home has large glass windows that look out onto the spacious backyard and infinity pool. A leisure lounge area is set up beside the spacious pool. It is also equipped with two dishwashers, a wine fridge, and an espresso machine. A media room, workplace, leisure bar, and health club also reside inside the home.
Due to the many palm trees surrounding this estate, it has been dubbed a “pristine paradise.”
