The two-bedroom cottage in Long Branch, New Jersey, where Bruce Springsteen wrote his breakthrough LP Born to Run is up for sale for about $350,000, The Associated Press reports.

Springsteen rented the five-room residence in 1974 and ’75 while he was writing songs for the album, and, according to real estate agent Susan McLaughlin, tourists stop by the house “all the time.”

The house currently has five owners, and McLaughlin said that if no one wants to buy the house outright, the owners would consider selling a one-third stake in the property for a price that has yet to be set.

As for Springsteen himself, he’s about to resume life on the road when the Australia leg of his Wrecking Ball tour kicks off March 14th in Brisbane. Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello is set to join the E Street Band for those dates while Steven Van Zandt finishes filming for his television show, Lilyhammer.
