Described in listings held by Shelly Tretter Lynch and Chris Gugelmann, both with Compass Connecticut, as having a “deep water dock and deep musical history” the 4,100-square-foot home is a relaxed repository of industry memorabilia and personal memories, such as the portrait of Rodgers and frequent collaborator and close friend David Bowie that hangs in a corner of the living room. The airy room also has a fireplace, a cathedral ceiling, and a wall of windows that look out over the water.
The all-white home on 9 Covlee Drive in Westport fits in with any of its coastal neighbors with balconies, outdoor entertaining areas and access to the water. What makes this home stand out is the famous resident that’s selling it.
The longtime Westport, Connecticut home of Nile Rodgers, a Grammy-winning songwriter behind major hits like Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ and disco classic ‘We Are Family’ by Sister Sledge—talk about an epic, decades-spanning career!—has arrived on the market asking $5.25 million.
The roughly half-acre property has about 90 feet of waterfront on the Bermuda Lagoon facing Long Island Sound, Rodgers said. He bought the house in 1980 for $269,000, he said, because it offered a dock he could use for boating.
Located in the coastal town of Westport, the four-bedroom home measures about 4,100 square feet. In the home’s recording studio, Mr. Rodgers said he wrote the arrangements for the David Bowie album “Let’s Dance,” orchestrations for Madonna’s album “Like A Virgin” and the score of the Eddie Murphy film “Coming to America.”
Nile Rodgers, the Grammy-winning songwriter whose credits include Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family” and “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk, is listing his waterfront Connecticut home with a recording studio for $5.25 million.
