Her worldwide album sales may have topped the 50 million mark, but home for singer Linda Ronstadt is anything but flashy. During the school year, she and her two children reside in a four-bedroom, two-bathroom Craftsman-style San Francisco duplex she bought a couple years ago for its "good light, good architecture and nice view of the bay."
The multi-Grammy-winner -- who comes to the Rosemont Theatre March 25 for a special performance with the Chicagoland Pops Orchestra -- says she gravitates toward anything that's from the past -- specifically, before 1906. She has furnished her home with "a funny mixture of antiques and shabby chic." The master bedroom is done in a mellow pallet of gray and white. Even the hardwood floor is painted white and, surprisingly, keeping it clean is not an issue, she says.
Once school lets out, the Ronstadt clan de-camps for its three-bedroom Mediterranean-style home in Arizona that was built in 1924. Though normally exceedingly private about her home life, Ronstadt graciously opened the doors to her San Francisco pad -- via telephone -- to give us a glimpse inside.

No microwave but I see she has every other kitchen appliance known to (wo)man
Now I understand the empathy with Michael Moore.[A LONG way from the glory days of the 'Moonbeam McSwine album photo]
Wonder if she'll manage to shut up and sing this time.
But man, back in the day she was a hippies nookie dream.
I remember many years ago seeing her in "Pirates of Penzance"..little slip of a thing with HUGE pipes.
If it's got calories it's also got a place in the Ronstadt home.

At least, unlike Rosemary Clooney, she has no relatives like the handsome gasbag.
She rocked in the seventies. Now she takes me back to 'Poor, Poor Pitiful Me'. Maybe she should have married Jerry Brown.
Linda, it looks like graceful middle age done blew by you...
