NICASIO (AP) — Would-be home buyers now have a chance to taste the high life, Grateful Dead-style: Jerry Garcia’s house is for sale.

The 11-acre estate in rural Marin County was the bandleader’s last home before he died of a heart attack in 1995 at age 53.

The sellers are asking just shy of $4 million for the 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style home and surrounding grounds.

The real estate listing describes amenities such as a 1,500-square-foot artist’s studio, a solar-heated pool and an organic garden. The estate has 300-degree views that span the Berkeley skyline to the Pacific Ocean.

In recent years, a man who bought the house and renovated it shortly after Garcia’s death sold many of the fixtures—including the guitarist’s toilet—to raise money for charity.
