The property also a rooftop tennis court, a large backyard pool, a double-height art gallery, a greenhouse and the so-called Utility Muffin Research Kitchen, a recording space where Zappa and other musicians laid down tracks.
The listing for the historical lot also boasts “many one-of-a-kind embellishments” including a dragon mural in the formal dining room, porthole windows and doors salvaged from vintage submarines and a large storage chamber beneath the house known as “The Vault,” where Zappa reportedly kept is private archives under lock and key until his death in 1993.
