Want To Buy Bruce Springsteen’s Old House?
The West Long Branch house Springsteen lived in from 1974 to 1975 is up for sale!
According to NBC, Keller Williams Realty has just listed the small house for sale for $349,000.
The 1920 shotgun house is just 828 square feet with two bedrooms, a bath, living room and kitchen, front porch, back patio, and small fenced-in yard. It does have location working in its favor, sitting just one block from the beach.
In the opening of the 2005 documentary “”Wings for Wheels: The Making of Born to Run”, Springsteen says “I was living in a small house in West Long Branch, New Jersey, up the coast from Asbury … One day I was playing guitar on the edge of the bed working on some song ideas and the words ‘born to run’ came to me.” Later in the film, Springsteen revisits his former home where he wrote the album’s title track, and “Thunder Road” and “She’s the One.”
The home on West End Court is zoned as commercial-residential, increasing its possible uses beyond being a private home. The current resident said, “hopefully whoever gets it next will do something to keep the Springsteen factor alive.” He said he wouldn’t sell the cottage to someone who intended to tear it down.
