I’ve been a big Cyndi Lauper fan since the mid 80’s. She is a true icon of Pop Culture with a genuine smile and a passionate humanitarian advocate. Her singular, wild-child style and her unique sound caught on instantly with the Army crowd I was stationed with in Germany back then, and over the years her glitz has never faded.
So who would have ever guessed that this over-the-top party-girl persona would belong to a traditionalist? If her beautiful Connecticut home is any indication, Cyndi Lauper possesses a surprising, classic side.
Cyndi Lauper’s Stamford CT home is on the market, and what an incredible East Coast getway this place would make! The photos depict time-honored quality, conventional design and a subtle luxury that even the most unassuming of us might appreciate. Materials are warm and welcoming, details are elegant… an unexpected combination.
Cyndi Lauper Says Sayonara to Stamford

Pop singer and “Kinky Boots” composer Cyndi Lauper is high-tailing it out of her North Stamford, Conn. home, having listed her three-bedroom, 3.5-bath French Country Colonial for $1,250,000.
Located about an hour from New York City, Lauper’s home is a peaceful and private setting with panoramic views, but close enough to Manhattan for girls who just wanna have fun. Interiors designed by Howard Kaplan, founder of French Country, feature hand-stenciled walls and ceilings; 19th century doors, tiles and fixtures sourced from England and France; and a striking Cedar Mansard roof.
There’s also a storybook guest house (that Lauper formerly used as a music studio) with an open-concept living space featuring a stone fireplace, kitchen and full bath. Both the main residence and guest house are set on a meticulously planned 1.5 acres with stonework throughout and an in-ground pool.
Lauper bought the home with husband Dave Thornton during the 1980s and wrote five albums in the residence, according to People. The couple primarily lives in an Upper West Side apartment in Manhattan.
