Built in 1918, this 10-bedroom mansion in Laurel Canyon was where producer Rick Rubin recorded the Red Hot Chili Peppers for their album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik. After the success of the project at the location, Rubin bought the mansion and has recorded many albums here: RHCP's Stadium Arcadium, Audioslave's Out of Exile, The Mars Volta's De-Loused in the Comatorium, as well as many others.
Jay-Z recorded "99 Problems" here with Rubin for The Black Album in 2003.
The Mansion also served as the filming location for the 2nd season of Californication as the home of drug-addled über-producer Lew Ashby.
