The next installment of our month-long series brings us to cities we know and love from some of our favorite songs. Specific to no genre, singers/songwriters have been performing songs about the cities they’re emotionally bonded with for many years. Whether they’ve felt love, loss or simply long to return to their home after what has felt like years on the road, let’s revisit some of these world-renowned cities and explore exclusive homes in each of them along the way.

“Sweet home Alabama, where the skies are so blue.”


$4,700,000 USD | Orange Beach, Alabama | Kaiser Sotheby’s International Realty
An architectural and interior design masterpiece, this luxurious waterfront estate resides on four-acres of a private peninsula, surrounded by three sides of water with unparalleled, panoramic views. 1500 feet of private white sand beach, a private pier and two boat slips on Ono Harbor make this a rare and relaxing Alabama Gulf Shore escape.


Lynyrd Skynrd’s 1974 southern rock anthem, “Sweet Home Alabama” joyfully calls on the nostalgia and comfort of the titular state.

“London Calling!”

LONDON£4,300,000 GBP | London, England | United Kingdom Sotheby’s International Realty

This end of terrace house in a prime Kensington location has the perfect balance of modern technology and Victorian charm in London. This incredible property is a hidden gem, just a stone’s throw away from the amenities and shops of Kensington High Street as well as a short walk to both Holland Park and Hyde Park.

Punk rock pioneers The Clash’s 1979 “London Calling” is a genre-defying hit that, nearly 40 years later, echoes through the streets of the historic city and is best enjoyed loud.

“I left my heart in San Francisco.”


$5,495,000 USD | San Francisco, California | Sotheby’s International Realty – San Francisco Brokerage
An exquisite penthouse condo built in 1995 with recent renovations showcasing sweeping views of Downtown, the Bay Bridge and Coit Tower, this home’s modernist architecture shapes the interior with angular planes and unique designer finishes. The 360-degrees of City scenery is awe-inspiring with the Bay Lights installation a focal point of every evening. Near North Beach and Embarcadero, this Telegraph Hill location is both idyllic and metropolitan.


Even though he was born in New York, Tony Bennett’s 1962 classic “(I Left My Heart) In San Francisco” has forever entwined the world-famous crooner with the city.
