Sheryl Crow’s country music song, “Easy,” has soared to the top 20 list, but she’s having a hard time selling the Los Angeles home that may have inspired it. Crow just reduced the price by $1 million! It’s not the first time she’s made a drastic cut. She first listed the home on October 1, 2012, for $15,950,000, then reduced the price in January by $2 million. When that didn’t do the trick, she reduced it by half a million in May. On Friday she chopped off another million, to $12,495,000.
The home – which is more accurately described as a compound – features three historical homes, all built at the turn of the century. The main residence has four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. It has been remodeled over the years, but retains many original features, including Spanish tile, a wrought iron staircase, and beamed ceilings. There’s also a chef’s kitchen, cozy library, wine cellar, and music room. Outside there’s a pergola with a stone fireplace and barbeque, and a Brazilian Ironwood bridge that extends to trails that run throughout the wooded backyard; a full ten acres!
The two other homes include a Craftsman style home built in 1909, and a cottage that dates back to 1885. The homes have retained some of their original features, including white oak floors, hardware and fixtures, and a claw foot tub. The entire compound is tied together with canyon pathways, hiking trails, a tee-pee, campsite, playground, palapas and a resort-style infinity pool.
It’s all very rustic-chic; the perfect place to enjoy a staycation. Hey, who needs Mexico?
