A pair of properties owned by the late singer-songwriter Prince at the time of his death have been sold in Chanhassen, a suburb of Minneapolis.

Of the two, the largest was a 1.82-acre parcel of land that sold for $240,000. The property originally came to market in November for $925,000; however, that asking price included the construction of a Gonyea Homes-designed residence of about 3,600 square feet, according to listing details.

The other property, nearly half an acre, also came to market with plans for a to-be-built house by Gonyea Homes. Listed for $599,999, it sold just before Christmas for $150,000.


Two of Prince’s other properties, a 1.5-acre wooded lot on Lake Riley and a 1960s ranch-style home, are currently pending sale. Stephen Norton of Norton Realty represented the estate in the sales and holds the other listings.

Last year, a Minnesota judge granted approval to the late musician’s trust to sell a handful of his properties. At the time of his death, Prince owned a mix of homes, vacant lots and commercial buildings valued at $22 million, according to MPR News. Included in his portfolio is his Paisley Park home and recording complex in Chanhassen, a property in the Turks and Caicos islands and a 156-acre plot between Minnesota’s Lake Ann and Lake Lucy, the latter of which is valued at $13.7 million.

Prince, who died in April at 57, was among the bestselling pop artists of all time. He won seven Grammys and an Oscar for original score for the film “Purple Rain” (1984).

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
