Green Day singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong has put his house in Newport Beach, CA on the market for $1.895 million.
The surprisingly sedate 3 bedroom, 4 bath home, located just blocks from the beach on the Newport Peninsula, was purchased by the pop-punk star and his wife in 2006. The couple rebuilt the house from ground up, installing top of the line kitchen appliances, and other modern amenities. The two-story cottage features airy spaces with vaulted ceilings, carpeted floors, and a downstairs bedroom with en suite bathroom. The living room opens onto a private patio that includes an outdoor shower.
Armstrong’s band is two records into the release of their album trilogy ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!. The singer recently made news when he ended a Las Vegas concert by criticizing tween pop stars, smashing his guitar, and walking off stage.
