An investment property owned by the late singer-songwriter Prince is currently for sale in Chanhassen, Minn., at $335,000.

The renovated ranch-style house came to market in January, roughly three months prior to the artist’s death. Carver County records show that the property owner is Prince R. Nelson, the legal name of Prince, with tax records going to the address of Paisley Park Studios.

Set on about a quarter of an acre, the single-story home has an open-plan living room, a dining area and an updated kitchen in more than 2,500 square feet of space. A family/rec room dressed in purple has one of two fireplaces.


The master suite features a walk-in closet, a glass-enclosed shower and freestanding soaking tub for a total of three bedrooms and 2.25 bathrooms.

Glass doors off the dining room open to a deck overlooking the grounds.

Records show Prince owned the property for more than a decade.

Adam Fonda of Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.


Prince, who died Thursday at 57, was among the best-selling 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.

Though he owned a number of properties in Minnesota, Prince was mostly a renter in the Los Angeles area (see: Carlos Boozer). The only Southland home he ever owned was an Italian-style compound in Beverly Hills that he sold in 1997.
