Jazz saxophonist David Sanborn has just put his carefully restored and renovated Upper West Side townhouse on the market for $9 million. Listed by Roger Erickson for Sotheby's International, the traditional 19 foot wide, five story home has an abundance of original features like dramatic wood paneling and etched glass pocket doors.
The five bedroom, five bath brownstone has a fully renovated kitchen, library, media room and meditation room as well as perhaps its most unique feature, a fully-equipped recording studio.
Sanborn spoke to Josh Barbanel of the Wall Street Journal about the house and the studio that contains equipment from the Beatles Abbey Road studio in London.
"'I was hoping it would be bought by a musician," he said. "I put a lot into it. I would hate to see it not preserved."
