Girls just wanna have fun and so on, but they also wanna sell you a nice piece of real estate. Eighties icon Cyndi Lauper and her husband actor Dave Thornton have put this elegant French country Colonial style home on the market in Stamford, Connecticut, and it’s not quite as rockin’ as one might expect from the singer.

Still, there’s a lot to like. The home was built in 1975 by Vince Camuto, the founder of Nine West, and the Grammy, Emmy, and Tony award winner bought it from him in the ’80s as a writing retreat. It proved to be a fruitful investment, as she wrote five albums as well as the musical Kinky Boots during her residency.

The three-bedroom measures 3,885 square feet and sits on over one and half acres in a private, peaceful setting. A cedar mansard roof, antique English manor front door, etched glass doors as well as salon doors from France, and hand-stenciled walls and ceilings make up just a few of the whimsical details that make this dwelling sing.

The property also includes multiple fireplaces, tiled bathrooms, a guesthouse (currently being used as a music studio), swimming pool, and seasonal lake views. Located at 250 Saddle Hill Road, it’s offered at $1.25 million.
