An ultra-luxe compound once owned by rock’n roll legend Bill Graham has hit the market in Southern Marin.
This prime hilltop estate, located on over 10 acres just minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, was reimagined by renowned eco-architect Sim Van der Ryn.
Completed in 2002, the aptly named Guitar House took more than five years to complete and includes a nearly 10,000 square foot main house in addition to a spacious two-bedroom guest home, detached yoga studio-deluxe office, wine cellar, staff quarters, and a poolside cabana.
Breathtaking views of San Francisco surround the sumptuous property, which features amenities including a grand bedroom suite, a professional grade music studio/home theater, and an indoor regulation racquetball court.
The park-like grounds include a lush level lawn, pool and spa, commercial grade waterslide, and complete privacy.
Living off the grid is made possible with a personal water well, solar, geo-thermal systems, greenhouse, herb garden, chicken coop, and bee harvesting.
Modern amenities and a stunning natural backdrop create the ideal environment for entertaining and hosting large scale events.
