After nearly 40 years the once home to legendary Doors singer and worldwide icon Jim Morrison has opened its doors to the public! Nestled in the epicenter of Laurel Canyon on "Love Street"—so named because the Doors’ best-selling album Waiting For The Sun was written by Morrison in the house during 1967 and1968 with the song "Love Street" specifically written about the home–-the residence has been a source of world-wide curiosity and myth to millions of Doors fans. Replete with original artifacts including the shower where Morrison would write his poems on the tile in pen and lipstick, rare and original doodles from the singer, and the balcony where he stood and watched "the creatures meet" down below at the Canyon Store, the fabled home has, until now, remained a mystery.
Why stay at a hotel bungalow when you can have a whole Chateau close to everything in Los Angeles with the privacy and ambience of home? This house is located in the epicenter of Laurel Canyon Village with markets, restaurant and shops just a few steps away. Even though the house is only 5 minutes away from Beverly Hills, Hollywood and major attractions, you will feel the exclusivity of a getaway with a gated private entrance leading to an open courtyard.
The entrance at the top of the stairs has the feel of a mountain chalet. Inside an open living room with exposed timbers and a wall made of round, light grey stones leads into the dining area with a wooden gothic table. The living area is extremely comfortable to hang out and feel the historical significance of this Nostalgic Home. Modern essentials abound with a modernized kitchen, washer-dryer, and stereo indoor-outdoor sound system. Despite the recent remodeling, the home is still very true to the period of when The Doors were at the height of their fame. There is a lot of outside space complete with a patio, yard, firepit, garden and outside shower. Relax on the patio on a daybed as a fresh bougainvillea breeze perfumes the grounds. Or sit on the balcony with a glass of wine overlooking the Canyon Country Store. Off the hallway you’ll find the master bedroom with a King-size bed and spa tub and a second bedroom/office with a full-size bed. Two more bedrooms are downstairs including a full-size and daybed perfect for a child.
As Jim Morrison sang the house: "She lives on Love Street, lingers long on Love Street. She has a house and garden, I would like to see what happens." Come stay on Love Street, at the Jim Morrison House.
Additional amenities include: in-home theater, 3 bedrooms, ipod dock, washer/dryer, cd player, nice furniture, 2+ bathrooms, courtyard, canyon views, walk to shops/dining, lounge furniture, full bed, firepit/ fireplace, queen bed....Read more
