Tom Petty’s Lake Sherwood, California, has been listed for $5.895 million with Dana Sparks of Compass. The rock legend, who died in October, bought the property in 2007, and visited the 5,300-square-foot estate often with his wife Dana, according to Compass.

Take a look inside his the late rockstars waterside home:

Hollywood Past

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom house has its fair share of Hollywood ties. It’s said to have been built by a set designer for Rudolph Valentino, who passed away before he could move in. Later, Ralph Carmichael, composer to Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby owned the estate. More recently, Sparks, the listing agent and a former film and TV actress, owned the property. It currently belongs to the Petty estate.

The great room was formed from fieldstone in 1931, and houses Petty’s grand piano.
