In 1997, former Beach Boy and California native Brian Wilson bought a house in suburban St. Charles to live and work near music producer and friend Joe Thomas. After building a recording studio in the west suburban home, Wilson recorded 1998's “Imagination” in the space, but moved out of the home a year later.
Now, as the Daily Herald reported Tuesday, the home full of rock and roll history is on the market again. From the Herald:
Overnight guests in that house have included celebrities like Paul McCartney, Sean Lennon and Eagles band member Joe Walsh.
The 6,527-square-foot home includes five bedrooms, more than six baths, and two master suites, according to Betty Theisen-Placek of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The basement is a home of its own, and includes a recording studio, two bathrooms, a lounge, bedroom, office, exercise room, sauna and recreational room. Nine fireplaces likely kept Wilson warm during the cold Chicagoland winters, and an in-ground pool is also included on the more than three acre property.
The Daily Herald has much more on the home's history here.
