Lucky Johnny Cash Fans can now call the country legend’s longtime California home their own…
For a pretty penny.
The ranch-style home, owned by Cash and his first wife Vivian Liberto in Ventura, Calif., had been on the market for less than two months before it was sold.
Originally listed at $1.79 million, the buyer went above the asking price and bought the property for $1.85 million, the company said New York Post.
The house is lettered all Johnny Cash because not only did Cash and Liberto live in it, but it was also designed to the exact likes of the country music legend himself.
Cash had the 4,500-square-foot home built for him and Liberto in 1961 when the two were trying to mend their falling relationship by moving the whole family to a rural, remote area where they couldn’t be in the spotlight for a while short time.
The couple lived on the two-acre property for six years, and original features of the home include glitter-painted ceilings, a wall-mounted record player, an intercom system, a curving brick fireplace, and custom 1960s wood fixtures throughout the home.
Cash’s studio has also been left untouched by previous owners and still retains the tall windows and wood paneling of its original period.
And of course the singer’s black toilet has remained untouched.
He wasn’t the Man In Black for nothing.
