Of course Dave Mustaine, guitar shredder for thrash band Megadeth and the original guitarist for Metallica, lives in this fancy mansion that looks like an English cottage, but is actually located in rural San Diego County. The nine-and-a-half-acre property in Fallbrook comes with "pastureland," vineyards, and a pond, and is possessed of a "castle-like air," says the LA Times. In other words, it looks a lot like Medieval Times in there, if Medieval Times were bankrolled by a rich person. The roughly 5,300-square-foot main house's "regal interior" features rock and stone work, leaded and stained glass, and 10 fireplaces.

The 1990 house holds five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder rooms, plus a gym, a reception room, and a formal dining room. The residence shares the property with a detached, one-bedroom guesthouse; a pool; a former pool house now converted to hold a music studio; stables and an arena; and a flowing stream. The property is listed for $5.375 million.
