A large and resort-like mansion in Marin hit the market this week. In addition to being the county’s most expensive home for sale right now, it also sits on the lot where music impresario Bill Graham’s last home once stood.

Nods to Graham’s musical influence can be felt throughout the not-so-modest abode.

Coming in at seven bedrooms, nine and a half baths, and 13,635 square feet, 800 Corte Madera Avenue features everything one might expect to come with a 2003 home—pool with water slide, cabana, music studio, home theatre, racquetball court, gardens and orchard, green house, and more.

Designed by architect Sim Van der Ryn, this house is geared toward a very, very specific taste.

Asking is $25,000,000.

For those who don’t know, Bill Graham is synonymous with the Bay Area. Opening hotspots like the Fillmore and Winterland Arena, he set the stage for rock bands and acts like the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin to launch into the stratosphere. He died in a plane crash in 1991.
