Jim Bridger Road, Estate of the Day
Today's estate has an interesting celebrity tie-in. This home in a gated community in Hidden Hills, California was used by John Mayer to record his Battle Studies album. Nicki and Karen of Ewing & Associates Sotheby's International Realty who have the listing say that John experimented with recording in different locations within the home to capture the exact sounds he wanted for the album. Videos filmed at the house and available on YouTube show John bent over the piano in the foyer near the sweeping double staircase.
Back in February there were rumors that John Mayer had spent $10 million on a house when he was really leasing this one. The seven-bedroom home has over 11,000 square feet of space on 1.36 acres. The foyer has a gilded domed ceiling with an imported crystal chandelier. The large family room adjoins s kitchen with two center islands, walk in pantry and stainless steel appliances. A large home theater has soft sound absorbing padded walls. The master suite includes a sitting area, fireplace and private balcony. The best part of this home might be the outdoor space which includes a beach entry rock waterfall pool and spa, a barbecue center and expansive gardens. This home is listed at $5.995 million.
