Own a Piece of Rock and Roll History: Home That Inspired George Harrison’s Song “Blue Jay Way” Now for Sale

Now for sale in Los Angeles – a piece of rock and roll history: 1567 Blue Jay Way. Known best for inspiring George Harrison‘s song “Blue Jay Way“, this property is in a class of its own. The home can only be reached from downtown Los Angeles via a complicated street route, difficult to navigate on a foggy night — thus creating the backdrop for the opening lines of the song: There’s a fog upon L.A., and my friends have lost their way.”

Now, someone with deep pockets (and perhaps a penchant for music history) can find their way home. Home to the exact property that inspired this famous Beatles song on the Magical Mystery Tour album, to be precise. Harrison rented the home in August 1967 and was inspired to write the song after an evening where The Beatles’ publicist Derek Taylor was late arriving back to the estate.

With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4,116 square feet and a pedigree that money can not buy, the sellers are asking $4,599,000. 1567 Blue Jay Way has amazing views, massive walls for art, glass sliding doors that expose house to courtyard with large outdoor space that includes a wrap around patio, fire pit, pool and spa. A massive open floor plan with high ceilings offers tons of lights and the ideal indoor/outdoor living for Los Angeles. It’s well-suited for parties and entertaining. The home also includes a gorgeous screening room, touch screen surround throughout and a 2 car garage with direct entrance. The grand entrance is just the beginning of what this home has to offer in the sought after bird streets. This home in celebrity row is close to all things important in Los Angeles: The Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills and Century City are just minutes away.
