House of Rock

Facebook/2012 House of Rock

It looks like the party is finally over for the "House of Rock."

The Santa Monica, Calif., home which just hit the market this month, has historically been a party pad, hosting Hollywood legends like Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and even Howard Hughes. Contemporary stars such as Kenneth "babyface" Edmonds, John Legend and Christina Aguilera have also enjoyed the estate.

But the residence recently came under fire when the new home owners, who purchased the home in 2010, started hosting unorthodox "open houses" with upwards of 350 guests to expose the property to potential buyers.

Despite an attempt to obtain an emergency ordinance to shut down the gigantic gatherings, the property was given permission to rock on—probably not exactly the way the city council worded it—after the ordinance failed to pass in October.  

The House of Rock homeowners held a few more parties (the last one took place Dec. 6) before taking a more traditional approach to selling.

The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house is now being marketed the good old-fashioned way and is curently listed at $22 million.

Do you think the "House of Rock" should have stayed a party property?
