For Sale: Prince's House From 'Purple Rain' Just Hit The Market
Today my dear purple patrons, marks the 31st anniversary of Prince's colossal crossover Purple Rain and its iconic accompanying film treatment; an audiovisual experience still unmatched by any measure, even in 2015. Many have tried, and even more have failed, in attempting to emulate the greatness of The Kid's mid-80s coming-of-age tale, but you can soon own a massive piece from the film's set, as the house from Purple Rain has hit the market. Many will remember the white-sided residence -- located at 3420 Snelling Avenue in South Minneapolis -- as the infamous venue for the film's emotional climax (where Prince and his father fall to fisticuffs) but the quaint, 1,348-square-foot home is publicly listed for the low, low price of $110, 000, making it the perfect pick-up for a devout Prince enthusiast looking to recreate the film frame-by-frame. And if you've got the bank roll, we implore you to do so. Home purchases aside, there's plenty to look forward to from His Purple Majesty, having just completed a forthcoming album. No date has been confirmed just yet, but we hear it could drop damn-near any day now. So keep your ear to the ground and have an eye on us. We'll be sure to keep you abreast of all the purple things in the weeks ahead.
