Ike and Tina Turner’s former home in View Park sells for $870,000
The View Park residence where singing duo Ike and Tina Turner once made their home has sold for $870,000, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
Ike Turner, who died in 2007 at 76, purchased the mid-century modern house in 1964 after receiving a $40,000 signing bonus from Juggy Murray, the head of Sue Records, according to the book “Tina Turner: Break Every Rule.” He and Tina lived there for more than a decade before selling the property after their divorce in the late 1970s.
Built in 1956, the time-capsule-like house retains the spirit of the era with such details as multicolored tilework, flashy chandeliers and patterned wallpaper. In the family room, a rock wall fireplace is accompanied by a pond and waterfall feature, and the wet bar has a built-in fish tank.
The vintage kitchen has a breakfast nook and a pass-through that opens to the dining room. There are four bedrooms and 2.75 bathrooms, including a master suite with a step-up bed platform.
Outdoors, concrete decking surrounds a curvy swimming pool. There’s also a two-car garage.
The property came up for sale in September for $999,000 and sold in about two months, records show.
Ken Conant of RE/MAX Estate Properties was the listing agent. Branden Lowder of Keller Williams Beach Cities represented the buyer.
The Turners formed the Ike & Tina Turner Review in 1960 and scored numerous hits in the years to follow, including “Poor Fool,” “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine” and “Nutbush City Limits.”
