Iconic Songwriter Jim Steinman’s Residence, Complete with His Piano, Up for Sale

Jim Steinman, the renowned composer behind classic hits for Celine Dion and Meatloaf, has had his residence listed for sale, including his piano, famed for being the instrument on which he composed numerous anthems.

Steinman, who passed away in April 2021, is celebrated for crafting Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’, Celine Dion’s chart-dominating ‘It’s All Coming Back to Me Now’, and Meatloaf’s legendary ‘I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)’.

Nestled in Ridgefield, Connecticut, USA, Steinman’s two-bedroom cottage, where he resided for almost three decades, is on the market for $3.95 million.

The sale is expected to encompass all contents within the property, including art, designer attire, and musical instruments, notably the piano where Steinman composed his famous tunes.

The property listing, managed by Laura Ancona of William Pitt Sotheby’s Realty, states: “Since acquiring the original quaint country cottage on this site, it became Steinman’s personal retreat, where he conceived and constructed his magnificent abode and studio, fostering artistic creativity and lively social gatherings.

“Steinman cherished each item in his home, which formed the setting for his life and work.

“The estate aims to find someone who will be captivated by the transformative aura of Steinman’s home and artistic collection, in tribute to his legacy.

“Steinman enlisted esteemed New England architect, Rob Bramhall, to realise his vision.

“Over $6 million was invested in the building alone, and Steinman’s exquisite collections are inestimably valuable.

“It is believed that the combined value of the individual elements exceeds the asking price, but the goal is to honour Steinman by maintaining his sanctuary as a whole.”
