Prince Estate Reportedly Selling Six Properties, But Not 'Purple Rain House'
The Prince estate is reportedly selling six properties, but not his Paisley Park residence or the house dubbed the “Purple Rain House.”
The deal is going forward following Carver County Judge Kevin Eide in Minnesota’s approval, which was given to the estate's administrator Bremer Trust. These include homes, buildings, and vacant lots in Prince’s hometown of Chanhassen, which is a suburb in the city of Minneapolis.
Paisley Park, Prince's home and recording studio, will remain as a homage to the late artist, and is not among the properties to be dissolved. All of Prince’s affairs are currently being managed by Bremer, which confirmed that it “has no plans to sell either Paisley Park or the property referred to as the Purple Rain house,” according to Billboard.
Before the estate lists the six properties, which is slated to occur Aug. 26 following a tour by Prince’s half brother Alfred Jackson as reported by Minnesota Public Radio News.
After the tour, the estate will be required to submit another affidavit before listing the additional eight properties for sale.
Some of the properties that will be available are a commercial building valued at $22 million and a piece of land spanning 156 acres in Lakes Ann and Lucy that is estimated to be $13.7 million.
Prince died on April 21 of this year at the age of 57, found collapsed in his home. Reportedly, the famous singer was found in an elevator shaft. Tests released by the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the artist died of opioid-related causes. In a tragic twist, Prince had been scheduled to meet with an addiction specialist the very next day because had been abusing painkillers prior to his death.
