Rock star, actor, and "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Meat Loaf is unloading his hacienda-style home for $3.2 million. The multi-talented musician bought the property in 2005 for $2.325 million and spent a few years and more than a few bucks to renovate the residence and spruce it up (a la Mel Gibson). The gated estate was even featured in the April 2008 issue of "Architectural Digest."

The 7,142 square foot house is located in the Santa Monica Mountains -- hopefully far away from Gary Busey -- and was built in 2004. Soon after, in April 2005, Meat Loaf and his then-fiancee/current-wife Deborah Gillespie bought the residence for $2.325 million.
The Mission-style hacienda sits on approximately eleven acres of gorgeous land in the prime Abercrombie Ranch Estates neighborhood of Calabasas, CA.
The expansive grounds include a rectangular pool and spa.
In addition to a legendary rock career, Meat Loaf has also appeared in over 50 movies or television shows.
The grounds surrounding the crib consist of extensive resort-style landscaping.

After purchasing the home in 2005, Mrs. Meat Loaf hired decorator David Dalton to upgrade the interior design of the pad.
