The sprawling estate of the late Slash Records founder, Bob Biggs, is now seeking a new buyer. Sited in the Tehachapi Mountains, about two hours outside of L.A., the property is nestled at the base of Tomo-Kahni State Historic Park, and it offers 360-degree views of the surrounding desert.
Biggs, who died in 2020 at age 74, built the compound when he moved to the area in the early 2000s. The "modern-day concrete fortress" includes a 4,000-square-foot main residence, a 2,600-square-foot artist’s studio, and a six-stall horse barn. Completed in 2003, the project was designed and constructed by local architect Carl Day, AIA.
Seeking to strengthen the home’s connection with nature, Day integrated floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the interior of the dwelling, as well as expansive skylights. In the large atrium near the main entrance, wood and natural stone mingle with lush greenery, while the open layout leads to the nearby kitchen and two-story living room. In total, the residence offers three bedrooms and three baths.
Designed with privacy and self-sufficiency in mind, the compound is fitted with solar panels, a water well, and concrete walls with custom metal shutters for fire protection. Keep scrolling to see more of the property, currently listed for $2,000,000.
