This room features a pool table and a stone fireplace. Thanks to producer Rick Rubin (he bought the Malibu crib from producer Rob Fraboni) the entire house, though a bit dated, remains in tact, including the recording studio. Before previous owner Fraboni listed the property, the home hadn't been available for purchase in over 30 years.

Before it became a magnet for musicians, this house was allegedly an upscale bordello. In the early 1960s, Mr. Ed the horse was stabled at the home's ranch. Fast forward to 2011 and this beachside pad is where Adele shot her music video for "Rolling in the Deep." Oh, how times have changed.

The property comes with a spacious backyard and incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, which we imagine is quite the welcoming view after emerging from an all-day recording session.
