Log cabin living is on offer at this Pioneertown property in the heart of California’s Joshua Tree National Park which was formerly a recording studio.
The high desert hideaway is constructed with pillar logs and has been a creative escape for visiting musicians and artists, inspired by the arid landscape that surrounds the property.
While its rustic exterior and lashed post-fencing add to the Frontier vibe, the three-bedroom Joshua Tree property was built in 1994 and offers plenty of modern amenities which to truly enjoy those mountain views.
Soaring 20-ft ceilings and a stone fireplace take centre-stage in the living room, with a sleeping loft tucked beneath the pitched roof, above the second bedroom. The master suite has white plastered walls and a timber ceiling that puts a softer spin on the cabin vibe.
While it’s no longer a recording studio, the Pioneertown property at 5177 Roy Rogers Road could still host creatives and guests at its detached ADU, which could be a cosy Airbnb or a writer’s retreat.
The 1,500 sq ft cabin is for sale via Sotheby’s International for $825,000 and is three blocks from Harriet & Pappy’s – the popular venue constructed by the cowboy actor with Gene Autry and run by longtime owners Robyn Celia and Linda Krantz.
