Landmark West End Cottage

The best darn piece of rock and roll memorabilia that $299,000 can buy. It's the West End (Long Branch) cottage where Bruce Springsteen wrote the entire Born to Run album in 1974-1975.

Bruce has spoken publicly about living here, including in the Born to Run documentary made in 2005 on the 30th anniversary of it's re-mastered release. In the documentary, Bruce returns to 7 1/2 West End Court and reminisces about how he would sit on the porch or sit on the edge of his bed, writing Thunder Road, Born to Run, Tenth Avenue Freeze Out, Backstreets, She's the One and Jungleland.

The 5 room, 2 bedroom, 1 Bath cottage is bigger than it looks at 828 square feet. It is just 120 feet from beach access. It has a front porch, small yard and patio. It has nice high ceilings and is built in the traditional Southern "Shot gun" style. The lot is 25 x 95, Zoned commercial-residential (C-3) so anything from a restaurant, 4 story office building, etc. is allowable in the zone.

I have an exclusive, listed at $299,000.
What's it worth? It's priceless :-)
