Gene Simmons is kissing his Beverly Hills estate goodbye after nearly 40 years.

The KISS rocker has sold his extravagant seven-bedroom California mansion for $16 million, PEOPLE confirms. It was originally listed in October 2020 for $22 million with Douglas Elliman agents and Million Dollar Listing stars Matt and Josh Altman, who could not be reached for comment about the sale.

The palatial 16,000-square-foot estate features several amazing features including a regulation tennis court and a 60-foot water slide. It's situated on two acres on Benedict Canyon and is hidden away behind lush greenery, creating a very private setting.

In August of 2020, the musician put another, smaller Hollywood Hills home on the market, listing the four-bedroom two-bathroom split-level residence for $2.2 million.

That single-family home was built in 1968 and is described as a "secluded celebrity retreat" located on a gated private road at the top of Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles. The home features views from the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory to Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean.

Simmons owned the home for seven years and records obtained by the Los Angeles Times show he paid $1.45 million for it back in 2013.
