A Beach Home To Marvel…

Grace Slick’s California Love-Era Beach House

The queen of San Francisco’s music scene in the city’s love-and-hippy days of the 1960s and ‘70s, Grace Slick sang some of the era’s iconic songs, including “White Rabbit,” “Somebody To Love,” “We Built This City” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.” The former model for I. Magnin, Grace switched careers in the mid ‘60s when she became the lead singer-and-star for Jefferson Airplane and then for Jefferson Starship.

In 1970, Grace didn’t venture far from her San Francisco music roots when she bought a four-bedroom beach home in the small oceanfront town of Bolinas – about 15 miles north of San Francisco. Grace’s former beach house is for sale at $12.995 million.

Offering big beach and ocean views from Stinson Beach to San Francisco, 400 feet of beachfront, and the seclusion of a small beach town, the 1920’s-era home was once a hotel, dance hall, and casino that has been totally revamped and updated but still retains the classic beach house feeling. Part of the 4,000-square-foot home is a large family room, which, according to the listing, was the location of “the practice stage where members of Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, and other legendary musicians crafted songs and jammed late into the evening.” Outside the home is a guitar-shaped swimming pool that Grace designed.
