Annie Leibovitz's $8.99M California Dream Farm for Sale!

Legendary portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz, known for her iconic magazine portraits of celebrities like John Lennon and Bob Dylan, is bidding goodbye to her 65-acre retreat in Bolinas, California. Leibovitz, 74, initially envisioned this Californian oasis, aptly named the Hideaway, as her return to the Golden State, where she spent her formative years.

Despite her deep connection to California, unforeseen circumstances led to her decision to sell. Back in 2019, with dreams of a laid-back West Coast lifestyle, she purchased the property for $7.5 million, injecting an additional $2 million for upgrades over her ownership.

Leibovitz’s vision for the Hideaway included a collaboration with a local farmer to revive the farm’s former glory as a hub for agriculture and education. However, life had other plans. Her daughter’s college choice in the Northeast altered the course, leaving the property underutilized and prompting its listing for sale.

The estate boasts a rich history dating back to the 1800s, offering a diverse array of amenities. From multiple barns, including a horse barn, hay barn, and a dairy barn housing a unique recording studio, to a guest house and caretaker’s residence, the property is a fusion of rustic allure and modern comfort.

The jewel of the Hideaway is the four-bedroom primary residence complemented by lush equestrian facilities and a quaint performance stage-equipped barn from the 1930s. The idyllic setting, with its serene landscape and charming homes, epitomizes Leibovitz’s ultimate retreat in the heart of California’s coastal beauty.

Interested buyers can explore 605 Horseshoe Hill Road through the esteemed real estate agents Alexander Fromm Lurie and Nick Svenson from Compass. As the Hideaway awaits its next steward, the legacy of Annie Leibovitz’s artistic sanctuary will soon embrace a new chapter in the hands of a fortunate buyer.

As the curtains close on Leibovitz’s chapter at the Hideaway, the allure of this magnificent estate resonates with the artistry and serenity that defined her Californian dream.
