The former home of Joy Division‘s Ian Curtis is up for sale.

The two bedroom property at 77 Barton Street, Macclesfield is featured on Rightmove. The listing reads: “Situated in a popular and central location, this double fronted character cottage offers spacious accommodation with two reception rooms, two double bedrooms, a good size kitchen and a shared courtyard garden.”

The house has an asking price of £115,000. The property was on the market for £64,950 in 2002. The house was used as a location in the 2007 Anton Corbijn-directed film Control. Curtis took his own life in the property on May 18 1980 at the age of 23, days before the band were due to undertake a US tour.

Joy Division’s debut EP ‘An Ideal For Living’ was released for last year’s Record Store Day. The record was made in 1978, shortly after the band dropped their original name Warsaw. The new version was remastered at Abbey Road Studios in London by the band’s longtime engineer, Frank Arkwright.
