Cool intention and glad to see the house exterior, but this video could have been 1 minute long for its purpose

I thought it was in the middle of his lawn. I didn't know you could drive to it.

That was awesome.

Was that some kind of electrical transformer next to the road? Doesn't seem like a good place to put it, especially if it was there when Ace lived there.

Thank you very for sharinf the video, it was fun watching it.

What puzzles me is what a totally urban guys drives out of the city into the countryside as soon as they can afford it. Yes, I understand, you can not equip a studio in the apartment in the middle of New York City center, also as a celebrity you might face fans constantly flocking around your block of apartments. But give me the break - this is a city, which gave birth to your music, to rock'n'roll.

I'm a big Ace fan...and it's one thing to drive by a house that is facing a public street to get a pic. But it's not cool to walk onto someone's secluded private property to film. Guy is lucky he didn't get arrested...or worse.

Nothing puzzling here. Ace lived in and around white plains, tarrytown & Irvington throughout Kiss’ early days. He didn’t move to Wilton till kiss was super popular in late 78 when people were stalking his homes and he wanted some seclusion. And throughout this time he always had an apartment in the city...

Wilton isn't exactly the boondocks anyway. It's only about an hour outside NYC.

They're lucky a pair of vigilantes didn't chase them down and shoot them.

That video was terrible.

The same 7 lines repeated. Jumpy as balls camera.

Nothing seen but a door.

Under the ground. He built it under the ground.

Thanks, I did not know Ace had lived in the places you mentioned. Look at street view, indeed there is quite a lot of greenery around these areas.

I assumed he'd lived in Bronx throughout Kiss’ early days, quite in an urban situation.

You’re correct - he was raised in the Bronx...
I think he moved to Westchester once he married Jeanette around the time Alive was breaking

It's funny this came up because I grew up in the next town over from Wilton, and a guy I knew said the very same thing to me once when we went look at that house. "Why would a guy from the city want to be here" - or words to that effect.

And I thought about it and decided a guy like Ace probably saw it differently than we did. Meaning if you're in the CT suburbs you think of NYC as the cool exciting place to be. For guys like Ace or Peter who grew up in the city without a lot of money moving out to CT is their idea of "making it". If you can do that it shows you've arrived.

Those guys are complete tools! Too bad they weren't in a state with laws that would have let the home owners defend their place! Getting scared ****less might have done them good.

Ace had people sneaking up taking photos of him at the condos he lived in while in Westchester when Kiss was popular so he wanted to get away from that...

Hence moving to a more secluded area. Funny thing is - fans still stalked him in Wilton as I believe the guy filming this mentioned he used to sneak onto Ace’s Wilton property back in the day ha

Back then everyone was clamoring to find out what these guys actually looked like because nobody knew.

Okay. But Peter lived in Greenwich and Darien so it's not just Ace we're talking about here.

It's pretty cool they got Michael J. Fox to hold the camera though.

Agree, it is interesting to see this vid but it is so dangerous and wrong to just walk onto someone's property like that. Taking your life into your hands fellows. Good Luck.

Thanks for that! I thought Ace lived in a Mansion! I had no idea it was so small... only 3,400 square feet.

I do wonder what shape the studio is in. Of course all the high dollar stuff Ace bought at one point....would be garbage long ago.

Listen, if anyone knew of the address (and it's common knowledge now as to where they lived) back then I think more than likely fans would drive around to hopefully catch a glimpse of them. I know I would have driven past their house just to see the place. But it is messed up to do what they did, by actually going onto the property itself. Yes, Ace and Peter are no longer at those addresses, but the private homeowners who live there now wouldn't be amused by this shit. They are extremely lucky no one called the cops at the very least.

A polite and much lower SuperfAn level of dork-ness and I am sure going to to door and explaining the history of the place and request or arrange a time for a little tour.... the owners just may do it! For all we know they are also huge KISS nerds that live there!

I didn't know that the house had people living in there. I thought it was vacant.

The home owners have probably had fans visit the home before. Interesting that he was there 40 years ago.

Good luck getting to Peter's old house.

There's photos of inside the studio. It's been converted into a large garage.

Isn't there supposed to be a tunnel connecting the studio to the main house? I remember reading something like that in an article from when he first built it.
