Bob Dylan has inhabited or made famous no shortage of illustrious houses over the course of his Nobel Prize-winning career.
There’s the prewar Spanish colonial in Malibu that serves as Dylan’s primary residence. There was The Big Pink, where Dylan fiddled around post-motorcycle accident with his buddies in The Band to produce “The Basement Tapes.”
Like many rockers and artists, Bobby Z dabbled in the Chelsea Hotel during his early troubadour years, producing one of his greatest albums (Blonde On Blonde) there. In this Daily Beast piece, Dylan talks about leaving his Woodstock, N.Y. house for the famous hotel, believing he could not write another album in a house where had already written one previously.
Heck, he even recorded “House of Risin Sun,’’ because, well, houses are muses as much as they are dwellings.
Now comes news that Dylan’s former Harlem home at 265 West 139th Street has hit the market. The list price for the wonderfully preserved and improved home is $3.689 million.
According to Curbed, Dylan lived here for 14 years before selling to the current owners. The landmarked, 4-story home was built in 1920 and contains 5 bedrooms and a slew of beautiful oak woodwork. It was designed by Stanford White of the firm McKim Mead & White and is located on Strivers Row.
There is an interior courtyard for outdoor entertaining and private parking.
