Grateful Deads Jerry Garcia lived in this Marin County House


Sold for $2,850,000 on Aug. 25, 2014

Attention Deadheads (and anyone wanting a spectacular house with a 5 plus car garage), here's bit of real estate news you will find interesting. The former home of the late Jerry Garcia, the Grateful Dead's beloved lead guitarist/singer/songwriter, sold recently and has a new owner.

It's the same home Garcia owned at the time of his death in 1995.

Located in Marin County's town of Nicasio, CA, about 30 miles north of San Francisco, Garcia's former home is Mediterranean-style and contains 7,189-sq ft of living space, tucked inside 11 acres and is surrounded by panoramic views of Mount Tamalpais, the Pacific Ocean and the Berkeley, CA skyline.

As one of Rolling Stones™ 100 Greatest Guitarist of All Time, Garcia undoubtedly lived the ultimate rock-star lifestyle as the leader of the Dead and he helped define the hippie movement of the 1960s in Haight-Ashbury area of San Francisco.

Undoubtedly, this 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom estate provided the perfect escape for the music legend. After meandering up a long driveway, a grandeur marble entry hall welcomes you into the home. A cozy den, formal living room, and formal dining room adjacent to the gourmet kitchen leave generous amounts of space to relax.

The kitchen flows into an immense family room complete with wood-burning fireplace, entertainment center with 8ftx10ft movie screen and full-service wet bar. The family room opens up to the sun-drenched patio and 73,000-gallon swimming pool.

With extensive ranch-style acreage and organic gardens all around, this is the ultimate space that heeds to a tranquil side of life that any celebrity needs.

The multi-million-dollar abode continues to an upper level which features all four remaining bedrooms, plus a spacious recreation room which is perfect for a gym, office or playroom.

The Master suite is a getaway in itself, with a private deck, enclosed sauna, marble shower, and master closet the size of a standard bedroom. Attached to the master is a nursery suite complete with a full bath and walk-in closet.

Then, leave it to a rock star to exceed having two additional bedrooms but rather a secondary master suite and junior suite that both offer a full private bath and walk-in closets.

Jerry Garcia went down in history as a larger than life musical icon who clearly had a larger than life taste in real estate to match.
