Buy a Jazz Legend's Upper West Side Townhouse for $12M

CurbedJune 14, 2013
Six-time Grammy winning saxophonist David Sanborn has put his very impressive West 69th Street townhouse on the market, not for the first time. As The Real Estalker points out, Sanborn first listed the house in September of 2010 for $9 million before chopping the price to $8.45 million and taking it off the market in August 2011. Now it's back, though, asking $12 million, and looking like it's got a real shot at getting something close to that. The five-story house has five beds, four baths, and a top floor recording studio in which Sanborn recorded six albums, and tested the soundproofing by setting off firecrackers. Also of note is the the original coffered ceiling in the living room, which was uncovered when Sanborn and his wife began the process of converting the house from a five-unit building to single-family home.
