Dr. Dre has bought a custom home in a gated community in Calabasas, California, for $4.9 million.

The 1997 Mediterranean-style mansion has in its nearly 9,400 square feet of living space a game room, a snazzy home theater and a potential workspace for the hip-hop mogul: an acoustically engineered studio/office. A total of six bedrooms and 5.75 bathrooms includes a large master suite with a fireplace.

The three-quarter-acre lot contains grassy areas, a free-form swimming pool and spa, a fire pit and a barbecue center. Elsewhere on the grounds is a lighted and fenced tennis/sports court.

Unobstructed views from the property take in the surrounding mountains.

The property had been listed since January for $5.25 million, records show. It previously sold seven years ago for $3.925 million.
