Who wouldn’t want to take a dip and listen to some tunes in this guitar-shaped pool? Modeled after the Gibson J-200 jumbo guitar — one of Rich’s favorites — the pool is one of the coolest parts of the property. The headstock of the guitar is even a hot tub!
Inside, there’s a fully stocked bar that’s sure to be a hit with guests.
Even the bathrooms stay true to the musician’s instrument of choice. Rich said when he was designing the house, he thought, “I want people to get a smile on their face no matter where they’re at in this house.” And he did just that: The guitar-themed toilet lids are guaranteed to strike a happy note with whoever sees them!
“I’ll just listen for the laugh — that’s how I know you saw it,” Rich said.
The singer-songwriter uses that humor to put his career in perspective. “There’s a lot of people that write a lot of great music and that are great singers that don’t ever really achieve big success because for whatever reason, it didn’t work out for them,” he said. “And for me, it worked out. So I like to be able to look right back at the place that built it.”
