Live in a Rumored Rolling Stones' Townhouse



A New York City townhouse rumored to have once been home to the Rolling Stones has just hit the market for $7.95 million.

According to the home's owner, the picturesque, five-story Greenwich Village property was a crash pad for the iconic rock 'n' roll band for a brief time in the 1960s and was where they wrote the hits "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Paint It Black."

"My sense is that the owner's story is very accurate," listing agent Jeremy V. Stein tells AOL Real Estate. "While the Rolling Stones didn't own the house, I do believe they did live there at some point."

Also, the home was once owned by German American illustrator and puppeteer Tony Sarg (who is credited with coming up with the idea in the 1920s of making giant inflatable cartoon figures part of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade).

According to the listing, the Anglio-Italianate home has kept many of its original details, such as ornate plaster medallions and crown moldings, nine fireplaces with white marble mantels, skylights and an elliptical stairway. The 4,930-square-foot home features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and a stunning, south-facing garden.


If, in fact, it was once the dwelling of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and crew, it joins a slew of other former homes of rock celebrities, including Amy Winehouse's London apartment, Beatle George Harrison's Swiss mansion and Michael Jackson's California chateau.

Jeremy V. Stein and Robin Stein of Sotheby's International Realty have the listing.
