Sheryl Crow said her life came to a screeching halt in 2008 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After 20 years of living in Los Angeles, where the singer-songwriter was inspired to write hit songs about Santa Monica car washes and peeling labels off bottles of Budweiser beer, Crow packed up and moved to Tennessee.
Four years later, Crow’s eastward migration seems to be final. On Oct. 1, she listed her Hollywood home for sale. The singer is seeking $15.95 million for the 11-acre property at Vista St., Los Angeles, CA, 90046.
Crow’s property mirrors her rise to pop stardom and consists of three separate parcels and homes that she collected as her fortunes rose in the 1990s. The compound was featured in Architectural Digest in March 2011.
Crow purchased the Spanish colonial … fresh off the success of her self-titled follow-up to her hugely popular debut album, ‘Tuesday Night Music Club.’ Two years later, with her fortunes in the music business continuing to rise, she acquired the adjoining property with the cottage and bungalow.”
Crow lived in the 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath Spanish colonial that was built in 1924. She used the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom craftsman built in 1909 as a guest house for friends, family and members of her band. The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom bungalow dates back to 1885, with white oak floors and a claw-foot bathtub.
The Hollywood Hills property delivers everything, from mountain trails to ocean views and a lookout over the sprawl of Los Angeles. Crow said the place was magical.
However, after a high-profile relationship with cyclist Lance Armstrong ended and her cancer diagnosis, Crow made the decision to move with her adopted son Wyatt to Tennessee, where they lived on a 150-acre farm outside of Nashville. Crow added a second son, Levi, to her family, and in 2010 decided to auction Cold Creek Farm, too.
