Cyndi Lauper Lists Connecticut House
Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Cyndi Lauper and her husband Dave Thornton put their Stamford, Connecticut home on the market for $1,250,000. Lauper originally bought the house from shoe tycoon Vince Camuto in the 1980's as a refuge to write music and work in private. She wrote five albums, as well as the hit Broadway show "Kinky Boots" inside the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom estate.
The French country colonial is tucked away on a lush private road with stunning panoramic views of a nearby lake.
The front door is from a 19th-century English manor in the North of London. The roof is a gorgeous cedar mansard.
The interiors are the work of the founder of French Country style: Howard Kaplan. He imported a press from Italy to intricately hand stencil the walls and ceilings.
The great room features a wood-burning fireplace, high ceilings, and a large palladium window for beautiful lake views.
The kitchen is the heart of the house and displays classic French Country details.
All of the bathroom sinks, bidets, and toilets in the house are 19th century French pieces. The tiles in the master bathroom are encaustic tiles from 20th century England.
Cyndi recorded five albums at the house. She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2015.
