Day of the Landlords: Home of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis is available for purchase

In a room with a window in a corner, I found Trulia…

The former home of Ian Curtis, and the site where the Joy Division frontman hanged himself at the age of 23 in 1980, is available to purchase.

Online property sales website Right Move has listed the residence at 77 Barton Street in Macclesfield with an asking price of £115,000 — or just over $177,000. After Curtis’ death, his wife Debbie and daughter Natalie remained in the home.

Right Move describes the two-bedroom house just outside Manchester as a “double fronted character cottage, [offering] spacious accommodation with two reception rooms, a good size kitchen and a shared courtyard garden.”

The listing was posted on February 11.

More from the description of the property: “Barton Street is situated in an enviable location within easy access to the town centre and the train station, and is a quiet street comprising a mixture of mainly period cottages. This particular double fronted terraced cottage was constructed in the late 1880’s to handsome brick elevations and has since been updated with uPVC double glazed windows to front and rear and there is a shared courtyard garden to the rear.”

There is no mention of Curtis or the home’s musical significance in the listing. As Gigwise points out, the space was “used as the site of various location shots for Anton Corbijn’s acclaimed 2007 biopic film, Control – and remains a landmark of pilgrimage for many Joy Division fans.”
