It’s on to “The Next Episode” for music mogul Dr. Dre.

The legendary hip-hop producer and founder of Beats Electronics has put his longtime home in Woodland Hills up for sale for $5.25 million, the Los Angeles Time reported. The 16,200-square-foot residence is on a manor on Chatsboro Street in a guard-gated community.

The three-story house was built in 1987 and has been extensively renovated. It includes eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, and it features two kitchens, a movie theater, an office, indoor spa, an elevator and a 150-gallon fish tank. The property also includes a saltwater swimming pool and patios.

Dr. Dre, who famously grew up in Compton, purchased the home in 1999 — the year he released “2001” — for $2.35 million.

He owns other properties in Los Angeles County, including a home in a gated Pacific Palisades community that he purchased last month for $2.25 million and a Brentwood compound that he purchased five years ago from Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen for $40 million. Last year, he also purchased an estate in Calabasas for $4.9 million. In 2016 he sold a 9,700-square-foot Hollywood Hills residence for $32 million.

David Smith of Keller Williams Realty holds the listing.
