In October 2017, the music world lost another legend: Tom Petty at the age of 66.
The legendary musician's Lake Sherwood getaway near Malibu is now for sale over a month later. Built in 1931 with walls of local field stone, Petty’s retreat has mountain and water views across the natural lake from almost every room and 125-feet of shorefront. Deceptively large at 5,300 square feet, the house has three bedrooms and three baths and underwent an expansion in 2004.
Its rustic feel from the field stone and natural wooded environment is complimented by its balcony fireplace, redwood-paneled bath with stone bathtub that overlooks the lake and vaulted-beamed ceilings and fireplace in the field stone living room. It’s a California house with a European mountain and lake chalet vibe from its barrel-tiled roof to its private deep-water dock and enchanting terrace.
Rock and Roll superstar Tom Petty’s Lake Sherwood retreat near Malibu is listed at $5.895 million. Listing agents are Dana Sparks and Amy Alcini of Compass Realty in Malibu, California.
