Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan Lists in Los Angeles for $3.85 Million
The bass guitarist has long owned this Sherman Oaks property, which comes with a guesthouse for ‘cranking tunes.’

Duff McKagan, the bass guitarist for the rock band Guns N’ Roses, is listing his longtime home in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles for $3.85 million.

Mr. McKagan, 53, bought the Spanish-style hacienda in 2005 for $2.975 million, according to public records. He and his wife, model and swimsuit designer Susan Holmes McKagan, raised their two daughters there, Mrs. Holmes McKagan said.

The roughly half-acre property contains a number of structures, according to Marcie Hartley of Hilton & Hyland, who has the listing with Donovan Healey at John Aaroe Group. The five-bedroom, roughly 4,200-square-foot main house was built in the 1930s. The McKagans turned a former stable building into a gym. There’s also a one-bedroom guesthouse where Mr. McKagan has written and recorded songs, and which Mrs. Holmes McKagan also used for work. “It’s a big creative space,” Mrs. Holmes McKagan said, noting that the guesthouse is far enough away from the main house to allow “cranking tunes” without being overheard.

An underground wine cellar has its own entrance. Since Mr. McKagan is sober after battling substance abuse in the 1990s, the couple mostly used the space for storage of guitars and luggage, his wife said.

The gated estate also contains an outdoor swimming pool, a brick patio and a flat, grassy yard—a rarity in the hilly area, Ms. Hartley said.

The family has always split their time between Los Angeles and Mr. McKagan’s hometown of Seattle, his wife said. Now that their daughters are older, the couple is planning to spend more of their time in Seattle, although they have another property in Los Angeles which they plan to keep.

Guns N’ Roses’ 1987 album, “Appetite for Destruction,” is the best-selling debut in U.S. history. Mr. McKagan left the band in the mid-1990s and reunited with other original members in 2016; they are now on tour, his wife said.
