Michael Balzary, the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist known as Flea, has a home for sale in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park area at $6.8 million.

Flea bought the property, known as the Van Griffith estate, in 2011 for $4.55 million.

The Mediterranean-style compound, built in 1925, sits behind walls and gates on nearly three-quarters of an acre. The property also includes a guesthouse in what was once a carriage house.

The living space contains formal living and dining rooms, a library, a bar, an eat-in kitchen, a rooftop deck, six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The grounds feature redwoods, mature pines, olive trees, stone pathways, an outdoor fireplace and a saltwater swimming pool.

There are views of the city, woodlands and the Griffith Observatory.

Flea, 51, is a founding member of the Grammy-winning funk-rock band, which two years ago was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They appeared this year with Bruno Mars at the Super Bowl game and are working on their 11th studio album.
