Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day Frontman, Puts Cottage on Market (House of the Day)


Billie Joe Armstrong home in Newport Beach

We hope Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong had the time of his life in his Newport Beach, Calif., cottage because he's just thrown it on the market for a modest $1.895 million. Well, we think that's modest for the lead singer of a Grammy award-winning rock group.

You know, we love a good celebrity home, but we're a bit underwhelmed by Armstrong's digs. We expected something huge with stripper poles in the shower or a bowling alley -- something that flaunts the lifestyle of the rich and famous that the rocker must be used to (and that we most certainly won't ever attain). As Zillow notes, his pad is "more bright and cozy family hideaway than punk-rocker party house."

No matter. The tidy cottage on a 2,485-square-foot lot on Newport's Balboa Peninsula is still cute as all get-out, with three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings and a private patio. Speaking of the private patio, it does have something that we don't: an outdoor shower (sans stripper poles, though).

The home was built in 1946, according to the listing, but Armstrong and his wife renovated the entire thing "from the studs up" in 2007.
