John Fogerty Drops $8,950,000 on New House

Rock legend John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame, has purchased a 20-plus acre estate in Thousand Oaks, California, for $8.9 million, the Real Estalker reports.

Fogerty apparently bought the Hidden Valley estate in May 2013 under the name of a trust that also owns his Beverly Hills mansion, a property that he was reportedly trying to sell this summer for $23.5 million.

His new home has huge irrigated fields and a 22,000 gallon cistern. The main residence is 13,053 square feet, and there’s a swimming pool, spa, 12-car garage and a private water well.
