Bruce Springsteen’s Former NJ Farmhouse and Rehearsal Space Asks $3.2M

As any good New Jerseyan knows, The Boss loves living low-key at the Shore. From his days rocking the Stone Pony (where he’ll still make the occasional surprise appearance) to his time living in this little beach bungalow, Bruce Springsteen has never been one to adopt a high-profile lifestyle. This is further evidenced by the suburban house in which he lived during the 1970s and ’80s. Yes, it’s a bit of a mansion, but it’s located in the unassuming community of Holmdel, and when he took up residency there in 1976, he was only paying $700 a month. It was here that he wrote and rehearsed with the E Street Band much of the “Darkness on the Edge of Town” and “The River.” After listing previously as a $5,000/month rental, the farmhouse at 7 The Summit is now asking $3.2 million, according to the Asbury Park Press.

The 6,000-square-foot, 19th century farmhouse sits on a “woodland setting” that features a large swimming pool, multi-room barn, four-car heated garage with two apartments above, and a circular driveway. The main house has six bedrooms, a formal entryway, and oversized living and dining rooms.

When Springsteen lived in the house, neighbors said they’d know if he was home when his 1960 Corvette was parked out front. They’d refer to the property as “Boss Acres” or “Thrill Hill.” He and the E Street Band rehearsed in the barn. Footage of the band here was featured in the 2010 documentary “The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town.” It was also discussed in the 2015 documentary “The Ties That Bind,” about the making of “The River.” Today, Bruce lives in nearby Rumson in this mansion.

Check out this video of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performing “Save My Love” in the house in 1976.
