From the agent: "Johnny Cash often sang about the hills and flowers and wide-open spaces, and he lived it too. In 1961, Johnny built a 4,500-square-foot home in rural Casitas Springs, California, as his quiet place to escape from the rock 'n roll lifestyle. A place where he and his wife, Vivian, and their three daughters could enjoy family life in the hills for many years into the future. While their future did not pan out exactly as Johnny planned—he and Vivian divorced in 1966—the home was exactly what Johnny envisioned. The property includes five bedrooms, a pool, office, barbecue area, and sweeping views of the Ojai Valley, complete with oak trees, evergreens, and year-round flowers."
