Ever want to live like a rock star has? Well now you can … sort of. In the case of rocker Jack Blades, lead singer of the legendary San Francisco rock band Night Ranger, best known for their 1984 hit “Sister Christian,” living like a rock star meant living on an approximately 46.8 acre ranch. The Blades Ranch, located at 2200 Warrington Road in Santa Rosa, has been listed by Sara Hauter, Sales Manager of the Alain Pinel Realtors Sonoma office. With multiple buildings, a sound studio, and loads of charm, the property would serve perfectly as a compound, and offers plenty of room for special events with backdrops of the Sonoma County landscape.
The property’s farm house was built in the 1890’s, and was renovated and expanded in 1985. Today, the home is three stories and approximately 4,100 square feet, with four bedrooms and four baths.The gated compound includes a vintage two-story barn with a finished studio featuring a fully insulated professional sound booth which has recorded many well-known artists. The property features a one bedroom caretaker’s cottage, an orchard, and a terraced garden. The grounds also offer many other buildings, gorgeous views, a well-lit tennis court and a swimming pool.
The property is offered at $3,500,000. For more information (and to hear “Sister Christian!”), visit www.bladesranch.com.
