“So you wanna be a Rock n Roll Star?”

So asked Jim McGuinn & Chris Hillman of the Byrds. But maybe you want to simply Live Like a Rock Star. What do you do then? You buy this $5.3 million dollar California wine country estate that has a Gold & Platinum award winning Recording Studio as part of the package. 

Nestled in the gentle hills of California’s wine country, with views to the Pacific Ocean, this idyllic 8.4 acre country estate with Gold & Platinum award-winning Recording Studio is one of a kind. Located just 40 miles north of San Fransisco and minutes  from easily accessible Santa Rosa Airport, this magical place can literally be anyone’s country home.

The 14 room main house at Sonoma Mountain Estate and Recording Studio was originally built as a replica of a 1760’s Colonial Saltbox-Style home with wide plank pine floors, hand-hewn beams, hand-blown glass with hardware and fixtures hammered by blacksmiths in New England. The main house features 5 bedrooms + 5 baths with a total of 9 fireplaces throughout the estate. Two Full Guest Houses each come equipped with Kitchen, Living and Dining rooms, Bedrooms and Fireplaces.

But, there’s also a Theater, Tennis Court, Pool, Spa, Gym and a stone surrounded Viking outdoor kitchen with Viking grill plus all the bells and whistles you’d expect in such a place.  Last but not least being…. a beer tap refrigerator.

The world class Recording Studio sits across the private road next to a large grassy pasture. The Studio features a lobby lounge, main studio, two isolation rooms, control room, machine room, producer’s suite and large deck overlooking the valley and sunset with distant ocean views. It disappears into the countryside disguised as a New England horse barn.

All that, plus this is a real country estate suitable for horses or other livestock as it has 3 horse pastures. Those pastures could just as easily be planted with grapes for your own vineyard or used to raise goats for artisanal cheese-making. Located in the famous California Wine Country, you can’t have chosen a better spot. Music + Wine + Food = Heaven

If you enjoy putzing around the garden after cutting a track in the recording studio, there’s a deer-fenced, irrigated vegetable and herb garden plus fruit orchard with raised beds and a greenhouse. Distract yourself from real work with the wide variety of fruit trees and plantings including pear, peach, apple, figs, plums, cherries, artichokes, grapes and more. All this is easily cared for with a complete grounds irrigation system, 3 wells and 2 back up generators. Live-in care takers can also be part of the package.

The estate has been featured on NBC national television, MTV Cribs show and in 20 magazines worldwide including Luxury Living, Travel and Leisure, Robb Report, Estates West, Cigar Aficionado, Millionaire, Billboard and the cover of MIX Magazine. Sonoma Mountain Studio has hosted guests, artists and producers from Japan, Germany, England, Greece, Sweden, Canada, Chile, Australia and the US

With the exception of a few personal items, everything in the buildings and on the property is included in the turnkey sale, including but not limited to all designer and custom furnishings, art, decorations, electronics, pianos, appliances, outdoor furniture, plus the fleet of John Deere vehicles.
