Jon Bon Jovi's House: The Ageless Rocker Can't Sell Real Estate Like He Sells Albums

By on September 12, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Jon Bon Jovi apparently has the fountain of youth stashed away someplace, because the man refuses to age.  It's kind of astonishing actually.  The frontman for one of the most successful, long-lasting (and strangely underrated) rock bands of all time, Jon Bon Jovi has basically looked the same since their early years.  He has less hair now, of course, but for the most part, he still looks like the fresh-faced rocker from New Jersey, who first gained a following in the early 80s.  In addition to fronting Bon Jovi, he also runs a veritable entertainment empire, and controls all things related to Bon Jovi's recording, touring, and merchandising.  He is also a former owner of the Philadelphia Soul football team, and has enjoyed a moderately successful acting career, appearing in co-starring roles in such films as "Moonlight and Valentino", "The Leading Man", "U-571", and "New Year's Eve", among other projects.  Between his eleven studio albums with Bon Jovi, and his two multi-platinum solo releases, he has sold 130 million albums worldwide.  His success, and his legendary business acumen, has allowed him to amass an impressive real estate portfolio.  However, he has been trying to sell one property since 2007, unsuccessfully.  Now may be the perfect time to jump on it, as he recently reduced the price by nearly $3 million.

Jon Bon Jovi's house at 158 Mercer Street in Manhattan is 7,452 square feet, and contains five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms.  He bought the penthouse property for $24 million in 2007, and proceeded to remodel it extensively.  Jon Bon Jovi's house features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer stunning views of the surrounding city, hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, and eleven-foot ceilings.  Outside of Jon Bon Jovi's house there are three landscaped terraces.  In addition to the large open plan "Great Room", there is also a screening room, multiple utility closets, and a state-of-the-art kitchen.  After listing the duplex condo for $42 million, he has now cut the price to $39.9 million.  Let's see if it continues to fall.
