Just a couple months ago, an apartment in Miles Davis’ old Upper West Side townhouse hit the market for $495,000, and the Post now reports that the charming one-bedroom has sold for $500,000 to “a woman who ‘loves’ the building’s jazz-music history.”

The jazz legend lived in the Renaissance Revival brownstone at 312 West 77th Street from roughly 1960 until he moved to LA in the mid ’80s, often hanging out on the stoop with his neighbors and hosting other jazz greats like Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Dizzy Gillespie. And it was here that he wrote the music for his albums “Kind of Blue” and “Bitches Brew.” After he headed west, the home was divided into six apartments.

The 700-square-foot home has pre-war details including high ceilings, bay windows, exposed brick, and a fireplace. The kitchen, which could use a bit of updating, opens to the charming, sunken living room with its built-in shelving.

Miles Davis Way

As 6sqft previously reported:

The home is featured in the Davis biopic “Miles Ahead,” which stars Don Cheadle and is currently in theaters. Two years ago, on what would have been Davis’ 88th birthday (he passed away in 1991), this block between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive was renamed Miles Davis Way.
