312 West 77th Street, Miles Davis, Upper West Side brownstone

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.
