Grammy Award-Winning Songwriter Nile Rodgers Lists Waterfront Westport Home

Somebody’s about to get very lucky. The longtime Westport, Connecticut home of Nile Rodgers, a Grammy-winning songwriter behind major hits like Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ and disco classic ‘We Are Family’ by Sister Sledge—talk about an epic, decades-spanning career!—has arrived on the market asking $5.25 million. With its access to the Long Island Sound, both with lovely views through the windows and via a deep water dock, it’s a retreat to be cherished. At least, the chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame has for many years.

The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom home spans 4,109 square feet. Two balconies, a vast deck, and a verdant lawn all capitalize on proximity to the water, with the latter rolling down towards the dock. And while it may be tempting to spend all of one’s time outside, basking in the glory of the sweet, sweet scenery, something equally special lies inside.

Perhaps fed by the mystique of his surroundings, Rodgers wrote an incredible amount of music in the home’s recording studio over the years. To name a few, arrangements for David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance,’ Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin,’ and the score for Coming to America all were born in that room. Artists such as Blondie, Diana Ross, Slash, and Mick Jagger have also stopped by in the studio’s lifetime.

Shelly Tretter Lynch of Compass shares, “The property is simply magical. This serene setting of waterfront views is forever changing. One can just imagine the creativity that Nile enjoys.” Tretter Lynch shares the listing with Chris Guggleman of Compass as well.
