    Property Details

    You can feel the spirit of ''The Man in Black'' as you traverse the private driveway towards the iconic house at 8736 Nye Road in Casitas Springs, California. Johnny Cash built the 4,500 square foot home in 1961 as an escape from the raucous fame of his rock 'n roll lifestyle. He and his wife Vivian envisioned the rural estate - tucked in the hills between Ventura and Ojai - as a serene getaway for the couple and their three daughters for many years to come.If you know the rest of the story, you'll know that the homestead was not enough to save them from the forces that were starting to torment Johnny and threaten their marriage. But while they held onto that possibility, they poured their heart and soul into the house, making it irrevocably theirs, imbued with a combination of downhome country style and star-studded glitz.The story is told that Johnny bought the land and built the house to his exact specifications; walking the rooms and deciding on exact placement and layout. He created a secluded sanctuary, unique to this rural small-town enclave. Longtime locals recount stories of Johnny setting up speakers on the hillside outside the house, and playing concerts for the townspeople down below. The dramatic double-gabled house is set on nearly six private acres, nestled against a stunning natural backdrop. Inside, most rooms remain original to Johnny and Vivian's legacy, with painted ceilings imbued with glitter, an original wall-mounted turntable and intercom system, and curved brick fireplace in the family room. Custom wood built-ins throughout the kitchen and living room are period-specific and filled with charm. The wood-paneled studio where Johnny sequestered himself to write many of his hit songs is timelessly preserved, with high windows allowing the six-foot Johnny to peer out onto the grounds but providing him with complete privacy within. Johnny's habit of staying up all night writing music, then sleeping all day necessitated two distinct his-and-her master bedroom suites since their sleep habits were so different. The suites showcase their personalities: stark original period wallpaper and dark tiled shower in ''his'' bathroom contrast sharply with the pastel feminine sensibility in ''hers''. Even Johnny's famous black commode remains intact. The property overlooks the quaint village of Casitas Springs, with an abundance of wildlife and the majestic beauty of the Ojai Valley beyond. Soaring foothills frame the skyline in all directions.
