Mick Jones, who is the guitarist for the rock band Foreigner, has listed his 154-year-old Manhattan town house for $7.2 million.
Public records show that Jones, 62, paid $6,201,872 in 1998 for the five-story town house, which is at 2 Rutherford Place. Located on Manhattan’s East Side, on Stuyvesant Square, the six-bedroom, 4.5-bath limestone townhouse is on land that had been the Stuyvesant family farm, according to listing information. Features include inlaid wood floors, original mantel marble and moldings, a sun-flooded drawing room, a private roof-deck, a private outdoor shower, a formal dining room, six fireplaces, and a three-room, separate bedroom suite with a private entrance, according to listing information.

Listing information also reveals that the townhouse was built for a private family and was used at various times to house Civil War soldiers, as a monastery, as a doctor’s office with a residence and as a dinner theater.
Based on the fact that the asking price isn’t that much higher than what Jones paid for the house back in 1998, we can only assume—and we stress that this is merely an assumption—that the house hasn’t been kept up very well.
