Jim Morrison’s Boyhood Home on the Market in Arlington
Rock star Jim Morrison, the lead singer for the legendary Doors band, spent part of his childhood in an Arlington home now up for sale. Older residents and their families recall seeing a young Jim Morrison playing at 2320 Evergreen Street North. His former childhood Cape-Cod style home has been expanded and remodeled, with current owners investing more than $100,000 into exterior renovations alone transforming the backyard into a quiet oasis. Morrison’s father was an admiral in the U.S. Navy and the family reportedly lived in several Virginia locations.
Selling for $920,000, this updated, lovely home features 4 BR/3BA/1,964 SF with a chef’s kitchen as well as an eat-in kitchen. There is a master bedroom addition on the main floor with a spa-like bath. Hardwood floors run throughout the house. A fully finished basement is on the lower level complete with recreation room and an office. The backyard includes a new Trex deck and play area in addition to gardens and hardscapes.
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the owners have maintained the home’s traditional Cape Cod exterior, but interior updates include an expanded kitchen, a new dining room and family room and a new master suite. The charming bedrooms with quaint dormers overlook beautiful front and back yards.
