(PNS reporting from LAS VEGAS) Guitar hero and chart-topping band leader Carlos Santana has put his 7,240-square-foot, four-bedroom, six-bath home up for sale as part a 12-step program to “mend…[his]..evil ways” and simplify his life, PNS has learned.
“When I come home, Baby, my house is dark and my pots are cold,” he told area Realtor® Babette “Call Me Baby” DiFranco when he gave her the Skybird Court listing. The home is offered at $3,499,900.
The amazing state-of-the-art luxury home with million-dollar Strip, golf, city and mountain views is located on an oversized lot in Redhawk at The Ridges and allows one to relax in the spacious master retreat with a fireplace and large balcony with stunning views. And that’s where the guitarist’s problems began, according to DiFranco.
“House put a spell on me, Baby, turnin’ my heart into stone,” Santana told the real estate agent. “It’s like I need you so bad, but I can’t leave you alone.”
Although the estimated $13,725 monthly mortgage payment is not a problem for the musician, the huge responsibility “got me so blind I can’t see, and is trying to make a devil out of me,” he stated.
Santana currently has a long-term engagement at the House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, and will miss the luxury estate home that boasts a beautiful marble courtyard, stacked stone accents, an elevator, Crestron lighting, a theatre, marble and hardwood floors, a skylight and large pocket doors that mingle the interior beauty with the exquisite exterior oasis and its disappearing edge pool, spa, fire pit and large covered marble patios.
DiFranco hopes for a quick closing, as Santana has been explicit in demanding a fast turnaround. “Don’t mess around with your tricks,” the guitarist said through his attorney. “Don’t turn your back on me, Baby,’cause you might just wake up my magic sticks.”
