It's not every day you see a uniquely grand guitar-shaped pool at an equally stunning home, but with this Bolinas listing, you can be sure it'll be your favorite piece to see daily.
Privately tucked away in a gorgeous enclave is 99 Brighton Avenue, a legendary 4,074 square foot home filled with not only the most opulent and sophisticated features, but also with incredible stories involving the most talented musicians.
Listed at $16 million by Aalto, waking up in this lavish sanctuary will truly make you feel like a part of musical history.
First built in 1920, this impressive home truly embodies the adage, "if walls could talk," due to its hosting of prolific musical visionaries such as Jerry Garcia and Grace Slick. During the apex of the free love movement, these two used to jam out here, their pivotal rock and roll sounds echoing throughout the posh complex.
The family of Susie Tomkins Buell, co-founder of Esprit de Corp + The North Face, also previously owned this magnificent property in the 60's, helping to ignite Susie's love for the outdoors.
Other prior uses of this home included as a bathhouse, teahouse, ballroom, and even a casino, displaying its versatility as an impressive venue for gatherings.
Just as you enter, you will be immediately swept away with its marvelous stone archway designed by artisan Doug Bryant of A Lost Art Stonework. Stepping inside you will also quickly notice the immense seaside views, available from any room.
A sleek fireplace and natural wood cathedral-style ceilings highlight the main living room, complete with hardwood floors tyhat are both elegant and cozy.
There are also limestone patios to effortlessly meld indoor with outdoor living.
Moving into the dining area is another masterpeice, with the chef's kitchen illuminated perfectly by the large sweeping windows. A deluxe 6 burner gas range with a grill/double oven, and a farmhouse sink fits the kitchen for all home cooks, and the lower level spacious media room contains a large wet bar for all entertaining purposes.
A cutting-edge sauna and three en suite bedrooms complete this lower level, all tied together with the tranquil ocean views. There is also a dettached two-car garage.
The unique decor of this home also can't be overlooked, as aside from the creative bronze dolphin statue by Marin scultor Peter Bishop Allen, the true pièce de résistance is the guitar-shaped pool.
Designed by Grace Slick herself, this glimmery serene pool divinely coruscates gold and copper mosaics and planetary motifs.
The trendy town of Bolinas is also right nearby, with the property being in perfect proximity to all of its downtown inpsiring galleries, live music and nightlife. Other prominent neighbors in this cute and lively town include Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins, Joel Coen, and acclaimed actress Frances McDormand herself.
This stellar home is truly one-of-a-kind, from its hallowed history, to its picturesque design and unbeatable features, making you feel like a true rockstar every day.
