Three Of Prince's Properties Have Hit The Market In Minnesota

As It Turns Out, Prince Was The One Who Bought The 'Purple Rain' House

In Prince's passing has come a trio of properties the artist once owned that are now available for purchase.

All located in Chanhassen, a suburb of Minneapolis, the largest of the properties is nearly two acres and includes new construction of a Gonyea Homes designed house of about 3,600 square feet. The house is described as a rambler with an open floor plan; a vaulted great room; a game room; four bedrooms and three bathrooms. A stream runs through the property as well.

So, the overall asking price? $925,000. Prince had originally purchased the property for $230,000 more than a decade ago, according to public records.

Following that is a one and a half acre lot on Lake Riley for $1.675 million. The property features new construction by Gonyea Homes, with a 5,654 square foot main house with an indoor sports court, a game room and a theater room. Five bedrooms and five bathrooms are within the proposed design.

Lastly, the smallest of the properties, on a little more than a quarter of an acre, includes a 1960s ranch house of about 2,500 square feet.

Offered for about $300,000 the renovated home has an open plan living room; a dining area and an updated kitchen in more than 2,500 square feet of space. There are also two fireplaces including one in a purple hued family and recreational room.

In other Prince related news, the Prince Estate has filed a suit against Roc Nation for illegally streaming Prince's catalog on TIDAL.

According to The Star Tribune the suit claims that from June 7 on, Roc Nation and TIDAL "exploited many copyrighted Prince works" by continuing to stream them exclusively through the "artist owned" hi-fi streaming platform.

The Prince Estate requests for the matter to be decided upon by a jury, and that Roc Nation and TIDAL pay an unspecified sum in punitive damages.
