Bernie Taupin has listed his 28-acre ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley for sale at $5.95 million.
Called Roundup Valley Ranch, the property centers on a Mediterranean-style house with views of the surrounding mountains. Set on a knoll amid oak trees, the 5,000-square-foot house opens to a courtyard with a fountain. A great room connects to a bar and entertainment area. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The kitchen features an island, granite and Jerusalem stone counters, a pizza oven and a walk-in pantry.
The detached guesthouse/studio was originally designed as an indoor handball court. Later, it was transformed to a recording studio where multiple albums were cut. Today it functions as an art studio with a gym and has an upstairs office with a bathroom.
