Prince’s Caribbean Estate Sold For $11 Million, Will Be Available to Rent
According to the Wall Street Journal (as quoted by The Current), North Carolina business man and longtime Prince fan Tom Barnes bought the estate for $10.8 million dollars. Prince purchased the property several years before his April 2016 death; efforts to sell it began the following month.
According to a 2018 listing from Premiere Estates Auction Company, the estate sits on five sandy acres on the island of Providenciales. The 10,000 square-feet compound boasts 6 bedrooms and 6 baths. It also has a tennis court, a 200-foot boating dock, two private beaches and yes, that purple-painted driveway. Barnes apparently plans to leave the driveway intact.
The island mansion has all of the amenities of your average home, including state-of-the-art kitchen, spacious dining and living rooms, and a gorgeous patio that features panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and greenery around the island.
Prince's estate has just released the second posthumous collection of music from his vault. Originals features previously unheard demo versions of hit songs Prince wrote for other artists - including "Manic Monday" by the Bangles, "Jungle Love" from the Time and Sheila E's "The Glamorous Life." In our newly published review, Nick DeRiso says the album underscores Prince's almost telepathic ability to inhabit other musical minds.
