The former Hollywood Hills home of rapper Ice-T hit the market recently, listed for a tad under a cool $9 million. The residence has a lot to offer – starting with a custom aquarium, and a retractable-roofed swimming pool that allows for cooling off in any type of weather, and plays host to some incredible city and ocean views below.

There is plenty of space in the nearly 4,500 square foot mansion – described as being a dramatic fortress – which boasts four bedrooms and five full baths. Other amenities include a spa and home theatre, along with a full bar – which makes this home the ideal venue for entertaining.

The property itself is in excess of 13,000 square feet, and can easily be admired from one of the home’s numerous terraces, which also provide a panoramic glimpse of the Wilshire Corridor, the Hollywood lights, and the blue waters of the Pacific.

If the home looks somewhat familiar, it could be due to its being featured on MTV Cribs several years ago. Located at 2287 Sunset Plaza Drive in Hollywood Hills, this unique residence is currently listed at $8.99 million. Private tours can be scheduled for interested purchasers.
