Singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie’s Florida compound could be yours.
Arlo Guthrie, much like his father Woody, is known for writing music with a socially conscious bent, including one of his better-known songs, the nearly 20-minute protest song, “Alice’s Restaurant,” where he sang, “You can get anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant,” before launching into a story about being rejected in the draft for the Vietnam War.
And while Guthrie most identifies Massachusetts as his home, his two-story sanctuary along the coast of Florida was also a home-away-from-home — until now.
Guthrie has listed the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home, which he rebuilt to replace the Coast Guard station that originally sat on the site.
That structure is what beckoned him to Sebastian, Florida, to begin with.
The original building could not be brought up to code, Realtor.com reports, so Guthrie had the entire building torn down, and replaced with a replica — albeit a replica with modern materials.
The home features a spacious chef’s kitchen, two guest bedrooms, and light-filled living areas on the first floor, and two master bedrooms with private riverfront decks, shared deluxe spa bath, and more on the second floor.
The entire home boasts 180-degree river views (and the marine wildlife that comes with those views), and a tropical courtyard and riverfront pool. A private white sand beach could be home to a dock, if one was boating inclined.
A grand lanai on the first floor combines with the living areas to form a perfect entertaining space.
Guthrie’s home is priced at $1.65 million, and is listed by Janyne Kenworthy with One Sotheby’s International. Want to see more? Click here.
