Prince’s estate is auctioning off one of the singer’s most cherished properties. And, no, it’s not the legendary Paisley Park in Minneapolis; we’re talking about his incredible retreat home in Turks and Caicos.
In a couple of months, Prince’s private Caribbean compound will be available for purchase through a worldwide auction. The property, which the late artist reportedly purchased in 2010 for $12 million, is located on the pristine island of Providenciales over five acres. According to Premiere Estates, the residence spans 10,000 square feet, and includes six bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a tennis court, panoramic ocean views, two private beaches, a 200-foot personal dock, and a purple driveway (of course).
“How do you value a masterpiece like the Mona Lisa?’’ said Todd Wohl, founder of Premiere Estates Auction Company. “The value is ultimately determined by the market—with a unique property like Prince’s Turks and Caicos estate, we anticipate significant interest and multiple bidders.”
The company will begin taking bids on July 12. Those who are interested in owning a piece of music history can learn more about the auction, as well as the six-figure registration fee, at Premiere Estates’ website.
