The luxurious mansion, which his family put up for sale after his death, tops L.A. Musician Mansions For Sale poll.
The luxury Encino, California home belonging to the late Ronnie James Dio has been named the most desirable property placed on the Los Angeles market by famous musicians in 2010. The Heaven and Hell rocker died from stomach cancer last May 2010 and his family put the five bedroom, five bathroom, English manor-style home up for sale in September 2010 for $3.3 million.
The estate, which also boasts 200-year-old wood floors from France, a 19th century English pub, and stained antique windows from the 18th and 19th centuries, came first in LA Weekly's Top L.A. Musician Mansions For Sale poll. Kanye West's $3.9 million Hollywood Hills property came second, while the seven bedroom Holmby Hills mansion Michael Jackson was renting when he died placed third.
Also mentioned in the top 10 are Blink-182's Tom DeLonge (fourth), Beck (sixth), Christina Aguilera (eighth) and Britney Spears (10th).
