The perfect pad for girls to have fun! Cyndi Lauper sells the Connecticut home where she wrote many of her hit songs for $804K... well below the $1.25m asking price
Hitmaker Cyndi Lauper has sold her Connecticut home of more three decades for $804,625, well below the $1.25million asking price it was listed for in May.
The nearly 3,900-square-foot home in Stamford that features three bedrooms and four bathrooms 'got worldwide attention and a lot of interest,' real estate broker Michael Leventhal told the Stamford Advocate in an article published on Tuesday .
Built in 1975, Cyndi, 64, bought the home in 1986 and lived there with her husband, actor Dave Thornton, 64, and their son Declan. But they decided to sell since the 20-year-old is now in college and she and Dave live in Manhattan in NYC.
