CHECK IT OUT! Your chance to own a Flea circus!4 BR, 4 BTH Moorish estate on more than an acre in chic Los Feliz PRICE Make an offer

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ naked-at-Woodstock (see page 28) bassist Flea is jumping from his pad of three years. Although his private broker says the house isn’t officially on the market, several sources say the rocker is quietly showing the 5,500-square-foot spread and taking bids in the $2.5 million range. Built in 1924, the mosque-style structure in the Hollywood Hills retains many original flourishes, like elaborately tiled bathrooms and a lookout tower. Nicknamed the Castle, the house boasts an impressive musical pedigree: Bob Dylan, as well as Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground, rented the place out in the ’60s. Not what you’d call a Flea-bag motel.
