The former horse ranch of famed Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh is getting an encore in Encinitas. After hitting the market last year at $2.75 million, the price has been bumped up to $2.875 million.

In addition to a single-level home built in 1997, the 4-acre property boasts plenty of other amenities. There’s a sports court, swimming pool, spa, horse corral, tack room and riding arena with direct access to trails.

A great room lined with hardwood anchors the main home, connecting a dining area to a step-down lounge with picture windows and a fireplace. Farther in, the kitchen holds a center island and plenty of counter space.


Six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms are spread across 5,635 square feet, including a detached guesthouse at the other end of the property. Vaulted ceilings and a fireplace touch up the master suite.

Other highlights include turf lawns, landscaping, two outdoor showers and a three-car garage.

Brett Dickinson and Annette Villalobos of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.

Before joining the Eagles in 1975, Walsh was already an established musician with his work in the James Gang and Barnstorm bands. His hits with the Eagles include “Hotel California,” “Life in the Fast Lane” and “Heartache Tonight.”


He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the group in 1998.
