The multimillion-dollar Bel-Air mansion that Prince once rented is back on the market.
The home reportedly is listed for $52 million, and has been on and off the market over the past few years.
When Prince Called it Home
The Mediterranean-style mansion was once the late musician’s home for a brief period and where he occasionally held private concerts, according to Robb Report.
It sits on a 1.1-acre lot, spans 36,000 square feet, and has 20 bathrooms and eight bedrooms.
The estate’s renovation was led by British designer Gavin Brodin, who has worked with high-profile clients such as Rod Stewart, Sylvester Stallone and billionaires to create their dream homes.
“This majestic Bel-Air residence has incomparable opulence, sophistication, and class,” Alasdair Hedley, head of international at John D. Wood and Co., told Robb Report.
He continued, “Brodin designed this impressive masterpiece with his signature ‘luxury with ease’ style, integrating timeless design with phenomenal attention to detail, setting it worlds apart in every aspect from comfort to grandeur. This fine home provides a secluded oasis of indulgent entertainment and lavish living. Anyone who sees it will instantly appreciate its ‘wow’ factor and know that there really was no expense spared. This is luxury defined.”
The mansion also was featured on CNBC’s “Secret Lives of the Super Rich,” where super broker Aaron Kirman and his colleague Tay Hasselhoff gave the network a tour of the home.
“When Prince rented this house, he used to throw the most amazing parties in this room. He would literally cover the pool with glass… and have these amazing jam sessions,” Kirman told CNBC.
A Hard Sell
Selling the mansion will be a challenge. In 2019, Dirt reported that L.A. hasn’t seen a brand-new mansion sell for more than $35 million in almost a full year.
Prince died in 2016, at the age of 57 from an accidental overdose of the opioid fentanyl. He died without a will, which sparked a family fight over his $156 million estate. In 2022, his family agreed to a settlement after a six-year court battle. His six half-siblings were named his legal heirs.
