Be grateful: Jerry Garcia’s former home in Nicasio, California is up for sale–take a look
If you are a Grateful Dead fan – and in the Bay Area, there should be a lot of you – you’ll be interested to know that the former home of the grand poobah himself, Jerry Garcia, is up for sale.
Located up in rural Marin County, this palatial estate in Nicasio is asking just shy of $4 million dollars. The home, which sits on 11 acres and has 300 degree views of Mt. Tam and out to the Berkeley skyline, was the last place Jerry owned before his passing in 1995. The current owner is noted on the listing as having close ties with the remaining members of the band and “…has discovered many interesting stories that surround the time Jerry lived here.”
Unfortunately, none of the stories are mentioned in the listing but I’m sure one can imagine the events that have been hosted at the house.

The home itself is over 7000 square feet and there is an additional 1500 square foot artist studio on the ranch. The house is designed in a Mediterranean style and is flanked by palm trees, giving it a somewhat tropical flavor. All the essentials of what a home belonging to the lead guitarist of one of the most popular bands of all time, are there: a gourmet kitchen, luxurious pool and spa, grand staircase, and au-pair quarters.

Hidden in the rolling valley and hills of Nicasio, the property is somewhat remote and offers complete privacy. Surrounded by open space, the ranch/ estate is self sufficient, with a deep well for water and large propane tanks for gas. For food, there is a vegetable garden to pick dinner and lunches.
It’s unclear what has changed on the property in the 15 years since Jerry owned it when he died. It seems though that many fixtures and appliances were sold by the new owner for a charity auction a few years back.
