Neil Young\'s Topanga Canyon Muse Listed For $1.8 Million

TOPANGA, CA — It's where Neil Young wrote some of his best songs. It was an epicenter for rock bohemia where The Eagles'

Bernie Leadon lived with

Patti Davis, scion of Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Honestly, it remains largely unchanged from it's hippie heyday.

Complete with a music studio installed by Young, and oodles of rustic charm, this Topanga Canyon retreat may be light on luxury, but it's heavy on inspiration. Wood siding inside and out, it features tall windows and decks that overlook the canyon. The 1,532 square-foot home was built in 1965, and it has three bedrooms and two baths.

According to Realtor.com, Young considered it his artistic haven. "The scene in there was always stimulating, full of the color(s) of the canyon," he wrote in his autobiography, "with the artists and other local characters ... and beautiful hippie girls."

  • Square Feet: 1532
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Bathrooms: 2 Baths
  • Built: 1965
  • Features: Neil Youngs former Topanga redwood adobe is up for grabs. For decades, Topanga Canyon was a pillar of Southern California rock bohemia and a place musicians would retreat to escape the chaos. "Morning on the deck began with coffee overlooking the canyon, watching everything start to move below as the day unfolded," Young recalled in his 2012 autobiography Waging Heavy Peace. "The scene in there was always stimulating, full of the color(s) of the canyon, with the artists and other local characters, rug dealers and beautiful hippie girls..." All of which inspired Neil to enclose the area under the house to create a custom built recording studio where he recorded "Topanga 1" (1968-1969). Later Bernie Leadon of the Eagles owned it and lived here with Patti Davis. As Patti said in her book, "There are so many windows in this house, it's like living outside." The 3 story home has Wood+glass architecture with 3 beds, 2 baths, 2-room studio, broad decks, and romantic hide-away...
