Ryan Friedlinghaus—the co-founder of the world-famous auto-shop West Coast Customs—has put his custom residence in Bell Canyon, CA, on the market for $4.6 million.

The name of West Coast Customs’ boss may not ring an automotive bell in your brain, but you must remember the show in which he played a starring role: MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.”

Friedlinghaus bought this Southern California property in 2015, and has customized it into a unique entertainers’ spread. Which makes total sense, given his passion for pushing cars to the limit.

The Mediterranean-style mansion has been specifically designed for friends, family, and fun. In the backyard, there’s an almost life-sized pirate ship playhouse/clubhouse, complete with a crow’s nest, plenty of ropes to climb, and a swinging bridge for access.

Another outdoor highlight on the sprawling, 4.19-acre grounds is a large infinity pool with fountains and views of the city below. It’s flanked by a poolside pavilion with dining facilities and an outdoor kitchen.

There’s also a basketball court nestled in among the giant boulders, and a number of conversation areas, one with a fire pit.

Inside the 6,950-square-foot mansion are entertainment facilities that include a one-of-a-kind saloon, with a bar tended by “Star Wars” figures (not included).

Of course, there are custom private rooms as well. Upstairs in the six-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home, you’ll find an entire wing for the kids that includes bedrooms and their own own playroom.

For the adults, there’s a private study with dual office spaces, and a primary suite with a spacious walk-in closet and a fancy, spalike bath. There are multiple decks on the second story that afford residents more of those unique views.

The spread sits in the Los Angeles area’s bucolic Bell Canyon, where celebrities including Shaquille O’Neal, Trey Songz, Niecy Nash, and Alyssa Milano have owned homes. It’s close enough to the action in Los Angeles, but also feels far away from it all when you go home at night.

In addition to being featured on “Pimp My Ride” and “Street Customs,” Friedlinghaus and his West Coast Customs crew have created unique rides for celebs including Shaquille O’Neal and Sean Combs. The custom auto builders have also built rides for global brands like Virgin, Nintendo, and Microsoft.
