Heavy metal musician Jason Newsted is strumming a goodbye tune to his Walnut Creek, CA, home. The former Metallica member has listed his modern farmhouse in the Bay Area for $2.89 million.

And you don’t have to be a head banger to appreciate this rockin’ five-bedroom home—the melodious mansion has been updated with custom touches.

Inside the spacious place, you’ll find hardwood floors, designer fixtures, and custom moldings. The current decor also shines—bold hues and floral motifs run throughout the interior spaces.

The new, cool kitchen features bright Moroccan tile and high-end Elise appliances. The kitchen opens out to a casual dining nook that looks out to the patio. In addition, the 6,720-square-foot spread features a living room, formal dining room, and family room.
