Inside Tom Petty's Stunning California Lake House, on the Market for $6 Million
Tom Petty's Lakeside Home
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom house has its fair share of Hollywood ties. It's said to have been built by a set designer for Rudolph Valentino, who passed away before he could move in. Later, Ralph Carmichael, composer to Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby owned the estate. More recently, Sparks, the listing agent and a former film and TV actress, owned the property. It currently belongs to the Petty estate.
The great room was formed from fieldstone in 1931, and houses Petty’s grand piano.
A wall of windows adds plenty of natural light to the game room that boasts a couch and a pool table.
The spacious kitchen is complete with stainless-steel appliances, a breakfast bar and granite counters.
Another living space takes on a rustic aesthetic, thanks to leather couches and ornately carved wood furniture.
A hallway opens to the master suite and bathroom, ensuring an effortless flow between the two.
A new master suite was added in 2004, and includes a stone tub and balcony with a fireplace.
Bathroom with a View
The deep soaking tub overlooks the lake outside. The land is also only nine miles away from the ocean.
Room for More
Another bedroom has an equally impressive spread, with an additional balcony and waterfront views.
A spokesperson for Compass notes that Petty enjoyed boating and fishing in the house’s natural surroundings, and his wife shared with the real estate company that he held the rod more like a guitar, a nod to his legendary career in music.
