Jim Steinman was the mind behind songs like rock legend Meat Loaf\u2019s \u201cBat Out of Hell,\u201d Bonnie Tyler\u2019s \u201cTotal Eclipse of the Heart\u201d and C\u00e9line Dion\u2019s \u201cIt\u2019s All Coming Back to Me Now.\u201d While his music had a far reach over the years, the composer used to live in Connecticut \u2014 and now his former home is on the market.\u00a0 Listed for more than $5.5 million, the home on 22 Ketcham Road in Ridgefield was where Steinman lived for nearly 30 years until his death in 2021, according to the listing. Steinman was the primary composer for Meat Loaf\u2019s 1977 debut album, \u201cBat Out of Hell,\u201d which went on to become one of the top-selling albums of all time. Steinman teamed up with longtime Connecticut resident Meat Loaf again for its follow-up album, \u201cBat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell\u201d in 1993, according to Steinman\u2019s biography. The album \u2014 which topped charts in 38 countries and sold more than 26 million copies \u2014 \u00a0included the hit song, \u201cI'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That).\u201d In the years prior to his death, Steinman created a musical based on \u201cBat Out of Hell,\u201d which is currently playing at the Paris Theatre in Las Vegas. The musical\u2019s website notes that the production is dedicated to both Steinman and Meat Loaf, who died in January 2022.\u00a0 According to the listing for Steinman\u2019s home, the property contains a home studio where he \u201ccollaborated with world acclaimed musicians and artists,\u201d and composed music on a piano that is included in the home\u2019s sale. The listing notes that Steinman\u2019s former property, his \u201ccurated collections\u201d and other elements of his former estate will be sold with the intention to \u201ctransfer this tangible body of work to the next custodian who will be delighted to find that Jim\u2019s home and art will impassion, elevate and transform.\u201d The composer\u2019s abode was designed by New England architect Rob Bramhall, the listing notes, which is based in Andover, Mass. and is best known for its \u201cdesign of architecture and interiors for town, country, campus, hospitality, retail, resort and recreation use,\u201d according to the firm\u2019s website. Steinman spent around $6 million for the home\u2019s construction, the listing mentions. Originally built in 1920, the home has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, spread over 6,183 square feet of total living space. On the living room wall, gold and platinum records marking Steinman\u2019s musical successes stand in contrast to the room\u2019s oversized club chairs and brick fireplace. A dining room, office and lounge area, along with a few other areas in the house, are finished in dark navy with gold accents.\u00a0 The primary bedroom carries on this theme, featuring dark wood paneling, a painted navy ceiling and a dressing table supported by gold, sphinx-like creatures. The studio that houses Steinman\u2019s piano is once again encircled by dark wood and dark ceilings, but stained glass at the room\u2019s periphery cuts through the darkness. In each of these spaces, memorabilia accumulated throughout Steinman\u2019s decades-long career is scattered about. Outside, there\u2019s over 1.5 acres of land enclosed by a stone wall, as well as a two-car garage.\u00a0 The Ketcham Road home is located in the 06877 ZIP code of Ridgefield, where national real estate brokerage Redfin reports the median sale price to be $857,000 as of August 2022.
