Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler gets in tune with a buyer in Beverly Hills

Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler and his wife, Gloria, have officially beat it out of Beverly Hills, selling their home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area for $2.604 million.

The couple, who reside primarily in their native England, bought the house more than a decade ago for $2.4 million, records show.

Built in 1957 and since updated, the Mediterranean-style home has a contemporary feel. The two-story home opens to a vaulted foyer with a staircase wrapped in decorative wrought iron. Skylights and walls of windows brighten some 3,710 square feet of white-walled and muted interiors.

Among living areas is an expansive living room that connects with an eat-in kitchen, and a formal dining room that sits off the foyer. A lofted bonus/office space, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms also lie within the home.

The master suite has a private balcony that overlooks the grounds.

Outdoors, the half-acre setting is filled with a saltwater swimming pool, an al fresco dining area, citrus trees and wildflowers that climb the hillside backing the property. A courtyard sits within the gated front entry.

Annie Constantinesco of Westside Estate Agency represented the buyer.

The 67-year-old Butler is a founding member of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Regarded as one of the most influential bass players of all time, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Black Sabbath in 2006.

Last month, Butler and Black Sabbath concluded their final tour, aptly named The End, with a show at the Hollywood Bowl.
