Jim Morrison’s Laurel Canyon Home on Market for $1,199,000
Two locations draw thousands of fans to pay tribute to the Doors’ late lead singer, Jim Morrison. One is his grave in this Paris cemetery and the other is Morrison’s Laurel Canyon home he shared with his girlfriend Pamela Courson during the Doors’ heyday. And now, Morrison’s home is for sale for $1,199,000.
Called the “Love Street home” (named after Morrison’s tribute ballad to Courson), this is where they lived during the Doors’ prominence on the music scene in the 60s. In addition to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, the Laurel Canyon area became a mecca among musicians during this time (Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash, Carole King, The Mamas and the Papas, Dusty Springfield, Brian Wilson lived here) due to its laid-back feel and rustic style.
The home’s interior appears reminiscent of what it may have been like if Morrison and Courson still lived there and perhaps stepped out for a moment. It retains a rustic feel with distressed floors, iron fixtures, and open beam ceilings. There are multiple patios where Morrison and friends hung out, wrote music and partied, and the house is being sold with all of its furnishings. Who knows, maybe the new owner will find another hidden area, as LA Curbed reports, where “… Morrison scrolled his writings, preserved and hidden behind the bathroom wall.”
