The former home of American country music icon Buck Owens is up for sale in Bakersfield, California, north of Los Angeles.
This property sits next to Panorama Park and the Kern River and features two homes, the main house and an in-laws quarters, totaling 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.
Many rooms are bathed in natural light thanks to floor to ceiling windows.
This home was built in 1949 and sits on .93 acres. It’s currently listed at $575K.
The design of each bathroom is completely unique. Check out the tiling and funky leopard print walls in each of these surprisingly eclectic rooms.
The previous homeowners weren’t afraid to paint walls (and ceilings) to their heart’s desire, resulting in this maroon-hued ceiling in the office.
The kitchen is very open with a bunch of floor space to allow for cooking collaborations without running into one another.
Outside, there’s a pool with a relaxing waterfall.
There is also room for four cars in the garage(s), and there’s an external shop space for noisy handiwork.
Born in Texas, Buck Owens moved out to California and became a pioneer of the Bakersfield sound, inspiring countless artists like Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam and Brad Paisley with hits such as “Tiger by The Tail,” “Act Naturally,” “Crying Time” and “Together Again.” Fronting the Buckaroos, achieving 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard charts, and co-hosting Hee Haw made country singer Buck Owens a honky tonk legend beyond the streets of Bakersfield.
Owens was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He passed away in 2006 after playing at his own venue, the Crystal Palace on Buck Owens Blvd., about 10 minutes away from the home seen here.
