Merle Haggard’s Former Home Hits The Market

Merle Haggard‘s former home in Bakersfield, California is currently on the market and listed for $359,000. It has been on the market for about a month.

Bakersfield.com reports that Haggard lived in the home at 4007 Brae Burn Drive for less than two years, with his second wife, Bonnie Owens; his children Dana, Marty, Kelli and Noel; and his mother Flossie. They moved in in June of 1969.

“Talk about culture shock. From Oildale to Bakersfield Country Club. We literally moved to the other side of the tracks,” says Kelli Haggard Patterson. “We were very impressed with it. It had a [second-floor] laundry chute, and I remember trying to put our brother Noel into it. It had a huge driveway, and we almost killed ourselves on our bikes riding down it.”

The house, built in 1965, features five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool and pool house, a two-car garage and a recording room. It is 3,600 square feet.
