The French Country estate of Rockstar Energy Drink creator Russ Weiner has been amped up and is now ready for a buyer.

Weiner initially purchased the home — once owned by Madonna — for himself two years ago but never moved in to it. Instead, he expanded the property and put it on the market for almost double what he paid, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The 12,100-square-foot property on Sunset Boulevard features seven bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and kitchen cabinets that can be opened by remote control. It also has two guesthouses and a 60-foot-long outdoor swimming pool, according to the listing.

Weiner purchased the home in 2015 for $19 million, according to property records.

Katelyn Byrd and Mauricio Umansky of the Agency have the listing.

Weiner is a “collector” of homes and real estate has “always been a passion of his,”
Umansky told the Journal.

Weiner owns a home in Delray Beach, Florida, and paid $20 million in cash for a waterfront property in Miami Beach last year.

He launched Rockstar in the early 2000s and is the son of Michael Weiner, known as conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage. [WSJ]Subrina Hudson
