Inside Ozzy Osbourne's $28.5M Beverly Hills Home
By Jason Knott
Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne's former Beverly Hills home - complete with the automation system and home theater that so frustrated him - is for sale.

Sharrrrrron! Ozzy Osbourne's former Beverly Hills home is for sale for $28.5 million.

The home theater looks superb in the real estate photo, but we are unsure if the system that Ozzy so consistently swore at in the TV series The Osbournes is still intact. Check out the YouTube video below to see Ozzy swearing at and hitting his remote control. (fast forward to 3:39).

The 9-bedroom, 10-bathroom home has some unbelievably famous Hollywood lineage. It was originally built in 1941 for Bert Lahr, who famously played the Cowardly Lion in the classic 1939 MGM masterpiece The Wizard of Oz. (How apropos that the Blizzard of Oz himself would later own the home.)



In addition to being the former home of the Black Sabbath frontman, through the years it was also home to movie star/pinup girl Betty Grable and her husband bandleader Harry James, Paul McCartney, Alan Ladd Jr., and Hollywood power couple Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.

The main house is about 12,000 square feet with 7 bedrooms, 7 baths and 3 powder rooms. The home theater and wine cellar on in a lower level in the home. There is a 3,000-square-foot guest house.

Blasphemy. You can say the same about most of Hollywood--I don't care about Ozzy at home any more than you do. But Ozzy is a heavy metal god. I'll take him over reality "stars" any day of the year.

Totally agree!
At least he is famous for actually doing something other than being an idiot and having people film him.

Ozzy is a music and TV pioneer. His reality show was the 1st one that became a hit, which subsequently spawned all the rest...now whether that's a good thing or not is open to debate. What can't be debated is his contribution to the music world, with untold numbers of bands crediting him and Sabbath as inspiration and 10's of millions in record sales.

Ronnie James Dio is better R.I.P.

I understand! What is the star in Reality??? Mostly folks making fools out of themselves on nation wide television. I snicker when I see a commercial with so & so TV reality star and I think, what the??? Who??? When I think of a star, I think of Jimmy stewart, or someone like that.
