Listen up you die-hard deadheads and purveyors of classic rock fame: the former estate of Jerry Garcia, the late frontman of The Grateful Dead, is now on the market for a cool $4.35 million. The sprawling hillside home is located in Marin, California, and borders Mount Tamalpais State Park.

Aesthetically, the residence is now more glitz and upscale than it was during Garcia’s counterculture heyday, but it has reportedly housed other rock and roll guests such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Carlos Santana.

Affectionately nicknamed “Sans Souci,” which is French for “without worries,” 18 Avenida Farralone contains four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It’s a 2,750 square foot home, which sits on a sprawling 4,791 square foot lot.

“When Jerry lived there, obviously it was much more bucolic and laid back,” said Jon DiRienzo of Paragon Real Estate Group, the listing agent for the property, in an interview with The Marin Independent Journal. “It was not as fancy as it is now; they had farm animals, a horse and a pet crow.”

The home’s modern amenities, which were nonexistent when Garcia owned it for seven years during the 1970s, include a heated black-bottom pool and spa, a viewing deck and an outdoor stone fireplace.

Though former relics of The Grateful Dead era are few, there is a custom-made door that remains. “It was handcrafted by a local Deadhead and wood carved and brass inlaid,” DiRienzo added. “It’s a beauty.”
