The owner is Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s, the all-female rock band which rose to fame in the 1980s. The group formed in 1978 and is still together now, with a major musical in the works to be released on Broadway in 2018. Wiedlin is a vocalist and guitarist for the group and has released several solo albums including “Fur,” which featured the hit single, “Rush Hour.” Some of her mementos will be on display for open house tours including her gold and silver award records.
“This is an amazing property with many features contributing to its desirability,” commented Kevin Dunn, listing agent. “Getting to know Jane was frosting on the proverbial cake.”
