The much talked about island home of the late singer/entertainer Prince has finally sold.
Prince bought the property, with 6 bedrooms and bathrooms, two private beaches, and 200-foot dock, in 2011. And though he’d made some changes like painting the driveway purple, TMZ reported shortly after his death in 2016 that he hadn’t even finished moving in. There were no furnishings in the home at the time of his death.
The property, located about 600 miles from Miami, sits 40 feet above sea level on a 5-acre peninsula on the island of Providenciales, on the Turk and Caicos Island chain. It features various terraces and outdoor-living spaces, a pool and many doors that open wide to the outdoors.
The 10,000 square-foot main house, which also features a tennis court, movie theater, pool first hit the market for $12 million, a month after the musician’s unexpected death.
After the home did not sell, it went to auction in 2018, but did not sell again. It was then listed by Sotheby’s International Realty in December 2018 for $11.8 million.
The mansion was purchased by Tom Barnes, CEO of 319 Capital Partners, for $10.8 million. If interested in ever staying there, Barnes has said he plans on renting the home when his family is not using it. Get your bags packed!
