Rock & Roll Real Estate: The Homes of Jerry Garcia & Jim Morrison

What do Jim Morrison and Jerry Garcia have in common? If you said they're both deceased musical greats that became a cultural phenomenon, you're right, but that's not why they're here. They also both have California homes that are currently on the market!

Earlier this summer, Jim Morrison's Laurel Canyon house was put on the market for double what it last sold for back in 2001. This rustic 3 bedroom California bungalow is the outdoor lover's dream with multiple patios, a private outdoor shower, fire pit — and of course — the famed hidden shower where Mr. Morrison used to jot down his writings. Also worth noting, the home is being sold furnished, so you can own some of the impressive custom-designed pieces. Interested in living on "Love Street"? Well, this is the home where Morrison and many other now-famous musicians used to spend some very strange days!

And just recently listed, the Grateful Dead's lead guitarist last-owned home is nestled on 11 acres about thirty minutes outside San Francisco. This 7,000 plus Mediterranean-style square foot house has an artist studio, pool, organic gardens, and 300 degree views — with the Pacific Ocean being one of them. My first thought after viewing the photos, kind of shocking that this is one of the houses the bearded hippie called home. This stylish home is absolutely gorgeous; I can only dream of living in a house this grand. And if you have a sweet $4 million, this home and all its history can be yours!
