Earlier this week singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow put her sun-soaked Hollywood Hills compound on the market, asking $15.95M for the three historic homes on 11 acres. The listing boasts original Spanish tiles, a beamed ceiling, a wine celler, and, duh, a music room. The crooner bought the 1926 Spanish Colonial, 1909 Craftsman bungalow, and 1885 cottage just as her career skyrocketed in the late 1990s. Over the years, she decorated each rambling structure herself, filling them bit-by-bit with flea market finds she discovered on the road, according to a March 2011 feature in Architectural Digest. A self-proclaimed "collector of oddities," Crow filled her lofty digs with "stuff that is somehow off-center or off-kilter, things that have their own inner lives and implore you to use your imagination." That means anything from vintage dress forms to animal busts to Latin American religious figurines to, apparently, a teepee. The overall effect was a "highly personal, richly layered approach to interior design." It's almost disappointing to see her let it all go, particularly because she so lovingly showed it all off just over a year and a half ago, but, let's face it, she's not the first celebrity to shrug off a property after a dog-and-pony show in shelter magazines.
Anyway, view the glorified Arch Digest photos above and head to Curbed LA for a look at the more earthly listing photos.
