Prince’s Caribbean compound set for auction in July
The Caribbean kingdom of Prince will soon go to the highest bidder at auction, his estate recently announced.
The island compound in Turks and Caicos was assembled by the late pop star as a getaway from his main home in Minnesota. The estate combines multiple parcels that total over five acres.
A 10,000-square-foot mansion with six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms is the centerpiece of the property, but it’s the road to get there that makes the retreat so quintessentially Prince. It’s purple — a color that became synonymous with the multi-Grammy winner during his musical career.
The home wraps around a palm-dotted pool and spa, and the premises also include a tennis court, a 200-foot dock and two private beaches. Ocean views are abundant.
Planning to throw your hat in the ring? Come prepared. Paper bids for the auction, handled by Premiere Estates Auction Co., are due by July 12, and each one requires a $100,000 deposit.
