‘Bat Out of Hell’ Composer Jim Steinman’s Ridgefield Home Marked Down $1.6 Million
If you're a rock music lover, you know the name Jim Steinman, who's written some of the most recognizable songs in music history, including Meatloaf's 1977 debut album, Bat Out of Hell. Steinman passed away due to kidney failure in April of 2021. Over his last 30 years, Steinman lived alone in what could be called a unique musicians' retreat or museum, which he took great pride in. You might say it was Jim Steinman's legacy.
Initially, when the home was placed on the market in August of 2022, it was priced at $5.5 million. According to jamesedition.com, the property has been relisted for $3,950,000, a savings of $1,605,569!
When Steinman passed away, he left behind his amazing body of art and his musical and theatrical work, but there were no instructions about what to do with the house and his belongings. His friends, along with his longtime manager, David Sonenberg, decided to sell his home "as-is," which means all of Steinman's personal belongings that he coveted for all those years, even closets full of clothing, will be included in the home sale.
