I said recently that TwentyFourBit wouldn’t be the place for Cribs-esque posts, but screw it ‘cause some of these living music legend real estate stories are actually kind of fun. So here’s this week’s contribution:
Björk may be moving out of her swanky Hudson River abode (after Phish’s Trey Anastasio bought a house down the street) for an apartment in NYC, but Iggy Pop left the city years ago for Miami and now Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed is also looking for a calmer retreat from the street hassle (lame pun, I know, but great song). Real Estalker reports that Lou Reed and his equally famous wife, Laurie Anderson, just bought a $1.5 million home in East Hampton, NY. Check out a few pictures above or go here.
The heated pool and luxurious location aside, Reed and Anderson’s 2 bedroom house isn’t that flashy. In fact, it looks fairly comfortable with its natural wood finishes and pale blue color scheme. Okay, enough with the song title puns. If you care to know more about Reed and Anderson’s new digs, take the NY-27 or go thataway.
