According to the Los Angeles Times, MEGADETH leader Dave Mustaine has put his estate in Fallbrook, California on the market for $5.375 million.
The 9.5-acre country English-style home in the northern San Diego community was built in 1990 and includes vineyards, pastureland and a pond.
The 5,345 square feet of living space includes a paneled media room/den, a bar, an office, a gym, five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two powder rooms. There is also a state-of-the-art sound and recording studio, a control room, a reception room and a producer’s boarding room.

Mustaine and his family moved to Nashville in October 2014 after living in Fallbrook for many years.
In a May 2015 interview with Rolling Stone, Mustaine stated about his decision to move to Tennessee: “This is the fourth time we’ve lived here. We still have our San Diego house but we’re planning on selling soon and making this permanent.”
He continued: “You know the saying, ‘Happy wife, happy life’? My wife and daughter are very, very, very happy here.”
Mustaine went on to say: “It’s been great. The people are wonderful [in Nashville]. There’s certain things I miss about California… and certain people I don’t. But it’s funny. I was driving to the studio the other day and I was kind of speeding and I see this sheriff. And I’m like, ‘Oh god, I’m busted.’ So I do a quick pull-in to the place where I’m going to eat breakfast, I sit down at a table and I start looking out the window. I see the sheriff make a U-turn and pass the restaurant real slow, and then he pulls into the parking lot. He walks in, comes right up to me and I’m thinking, OK, I’m nailed. I start to reach for my wallet. But then he goes, ‘I just want to tell you I’m a big fan. We all knew you were moving here and we’re so excited to have you here. Welcome.’ I was like, ‘Get the fuck out!'”
