The Linkin Park singer bought it for $2.5 million in June. Is quite big and luxurious. It has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and is situated in an affluent part of L.A. County famous for having an excellent public school system.

The house is close to 4,000 square foot, has 3 outdoor decks and a backyard with a swimming pool and a spa.

Bennington was found dead at age 41 after committing suicide last Thursday. The musician struggled with depression, but many of his close friends remember him as a selfless friend always willing to give guidance to others.

"He would go out of his way to make sure you knew he truly cares," Fred Durst lead singer of Limp Bizkit said. "He was always the one projecting light on the shadows."

The remaining members of Linkin Park issued the following statement on Monday:
