According to Realty Today, ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell has listed his home in North Hollywood, California for $1.49 million. He purchased the place in 2005 for $1.75 million.
The listing describes the home as follows: “Walled and gated Spanish gem in prime Studio City, South of Ventura Blvd. Private entrance with long driveway to 2-car garage and charming front courtyard with lawn and garden. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Open floor plan ideal for indoor and outdoor entertaining. Sonos sound system throughout the property, equipped with security cameras in all the right places. Living room with fireplace, dining room, and Chef’s kitchen featuring center island, Viking appliances and breakfast area. Spacious master with sitting area and French doors opening to back patio. The beautiful backyard offers a tranquil setting featuring mature landscaping, pool, spa, covered BBQ area, tiled patios for a variety of sitting areas, and guesthouse with bath.”
After residing in Seattle for many years, Cantrell moved to Los Angeles in mid-2003, by which time he had stopped his heavy drug use. The peculiarity of this transition would be expressed in the ALICE IN CHAINS song “Check My Brain”, from the band’s 2009 album “Black Gives Way To Blue”.
In a 2009 interview with CNN, Cantrell stated about the move to Los Angeles: “Yeah, it’s kind of a funny thing. Being from Seattle, it’s pretty easy to make fun of the Southern California lifestyle, or maybe it’s easy for a lot of people to take a shot at it. But this is where I ended up, and still can’t believe I’m living here. But I’m digging it! No need to rock the boat, man.”
