By Kathryn M.
Here's your chance to jam out in the studio of one of the world's most legendary musicians.

It's official—American singer-songwriter Paul Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, have just put their 32-acre Connecticut residence on the market. Originally built in 1938, the Georgian-style estate was designed by Harold Reeve Sleeper and is located on a quiet cul-de-sac close to the center of New Canaan. Boasting a beautiful whitewashed brick exterior, the 8,525-square-foot home is framed by lush greenery and sits at the crest of the property, overlooking striking vistas of the great lawn, pond, and pool.

The home has a lush landscaped backyard complete with a swimming pool.

Originally built in 1938, the Georgian-style estate was designed by Harold Reeve Sleeper.

The exquisite estate has six bedrooms, along with seven full and three half baths. There's also a three-car garage, as well as a 2,400-square-foot cottage—which could easily be converted into a charming guest house, or a musician's or writer's studio. Scroll ahead to take a peek inside this premier property, currently listed for $13,900,000.

Embracing the home's original architecture, the living room has been thoughtfully renovated for modern-day living.

The house features a large eat-in kitchen, fitted with custom cabinetry and modern appliances.

Right off the kitchen is another spacious, light-filled dining area.

An airy sun room offers warm, natural light and expansive views of the property.

The Grammy Award-winner recorded many of his hit records here in this six-bedroom estate.

The sale of the home also includes a 2,400-square-foot cottage, which even comes with its own garage. This quaint space can easily be converted into a guest house, or a creative studio.

Set on a nearly 32-acre private park, the property offers extraordinary peace and quiet.

Although the home is extremely secluded, it is conveniently located near the center of New Canaan and is just an hour away from New York City.
