An Apartment in Miles Davis's Onetime UWS Home Wants $495,000

The beautiful home is where the jazz legend once lived and worked

Once upon a time, Miles David lived in a townhouse at 312 West 77th Street; the home was eventually chopped into six apartments, and one of those is now on the market for a modest $495,000, reports DNAinfo (h/t New York Post).

The unit currently listed is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment measuring about 700 square feet, located on the second floor of the landmarked townhouse. Albeit, the kitchen is a bit dated and not as fabulous as the rest of the apartment, the place is definitely a winner with features like exposed brick walls, high ceilings, a fireplace, and large bay windows. Monthly maintenance is $1,025 per month.

Davis, who lived at the home for about 25 years, was a neighborhood staple, spending a great deal of time on his stoop and interacting with the community. The home is where he composed hits for albums like Kind of Blue and Bitches Brew, while also entertaining other jazz greats like Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, and another building resident, Tony Williams. The home is also featured in Miles Ahead, the biopic of the musician's life, starring Don Cheadle.
