With clients such as Cher, Elton John and Ozzy to name a few, Martyn Lawrence- Bullard is a genius at creating masterpiece homes for world-famous musicians. Hidden completely from the street, this elegant three-level Malibu villa of Kid Rock is surrounded by palm trees and a lush plant filled courtyard. Kid Rock wanted to create a complete oasis, and Martin has taken inspiration from the tropics to create this warm, inviting space.
The main rooms are located in the ground floor which has stunning views of the green landscape. Here in the master bedroom is a grand four-poster bed with sumptuously draped white fabric hung high from the custom wood-paneled ceiling. This leads into a large living room adorned by stunning furniture chosen by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard. This room combines Sitar’s with electric guitars, with the focal point being a grand piano gifted to Kid Rock by Elton John. Moving into the kitchen and dining room, the stainless steel appliances elegantly contrast with the natural wood found on the ceiling, floors and cupboards.
Upstairs is a recording studio where Rock could have late night jam sessions, while downstairs Lawrence-Bullard has added a screening room, gym, game room and four guest rooms for visitors. This is a perfect example of transforming a rock stars passions and desires into a dream retreat.
