Hitmaker Nile Rodgers  Wants $5.25 Million for  His Waterfront House in Westport, CT

by Georgie Mihaila

Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Nile Rodgers is ready to  part ways with his longtime home in Westport, Connecticut.

The legendary musician has long been living in the waterfront home — which includes a recording studio where music history has been written.

Throughout the years, some of the biggest names in music have recorded their timeless hits here.

Artists like Blondie, Diana Ross, Slash, and Mick Jagger have all stepped foot  in Rodgers’ 5-bedroom home.

In fact, legendary albums like Madonna’s Like A Virgin or David Bowie’s Let’s Dance have been   recorded within the house's walls.

But its ties to music royalty are by  no means the property’s only merits. So let's take a look at the home's  most unique features.

Nile Rodgers' house is right next to the water


Located in the coastal town of Westport, the 4,109-square foot home comes with a deep water dock and beautiful water views from nearly all of its rooms.

The waterfront house has  5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths,  and amenities galore


The celebrity home has 5 bedrooms, bright and airy interiors, and quite a few amenities — including an indoor dipping/exercise pool, gym, and  family room loft.

Beyond the easily quantifiable attributes, the Grammy Award winner’s home boasts a certain charm and comfort unique to a house that’s been lived in (and loved) for years.

This paired with the enviable waterfront location makes it easy to see how Nile Rodgers was inspired to create hit after hit.

says listing agent  Shelly Tretter Lynch

“The property is simply magical. This serene setting of waterfront views is forever changing. One can just imagine the creativity that Nile enjoys,”

adds Shelly. And she couldn’t be  more right.

“I have worked with rock stars of all industries but  Nile is the literal rock  star legend,”

Nile Rodgers’ contribution to music history cannot be overstated.  In 1972, he co-founded the band Chic which gave us some of the biggest hits of the disco era.

Rodgers later went on to write and produce music for other artists, to great acclaim. Some of his most notable credits include:


We Are Family for Sister Sledge


Upside Down for Diana Ross


David Bowie’s Let’s Dance album


Duran Duran’s The Reflex and  Notorious

In more recent years, he collaborated with popular artists like Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, and Daft Punk — winning three Grammy Awards in  2014 for his work on Daft Punk’s album Random Access Memories.
