Jerry Garcia's House For Sale (Note: The Acid Is In the Basement, Behind the Boiler...)
September 22, 2010 11:29 AM
THE HOUSING MARKET ISN'T DEAD
Grateful Dead memorabilia has historically sold for very high prices.
In May 2007, the Dead's long-time tour manager, Laurence "Ram Rod" Shurtliff sold off some of his collection, which included a 1975 Travis Bean guitar played by Jerry Garcia. It sold for $312,000.
Jerry's guitar strap sold for $20,400.
And a flight case containing Jerry's picks, unopened guitar strings and other accessories sold for $16,800.
However, perhaps the most impressive piece of Grateful Dead memorabilia ever seen is currently up for sale:
Jerry Garcia's house.
Not 710 Ashbury Street, where Garcia and other members of the Dead lived in the 60s:
But 55 El Mirador, in Nicasio, California--a tony Marin County suburb:
The listing notes that the "current owner...is close to remaining members of the Grateful Dead" and that there are "many interesting stories that surround the time Jerry lived here."
One thing is for certain--Jerry Garcia lived well.
(Oh, the stories this shower could tell...)
(A gym? A GYM??? Jerry Garcia had a home gym???)
Anyway, if you're a Dead fan with a spare four million bucks burning a hole in your pocket, contact Anna Boucher of Decker Bullock/Sotheby's at 415-860-1399 or at email@example.com.
It's a full-service brokerage--meaning, she'll bring the weed.
No positions in stocks mentioned.
