Prince’s Private Island Pad

Prince was known for being a bit of a recluse so it’s not much surprise that he had a home on the private island estate of Turtle Tail in the West Indies. Others have built castles on islands to keep people away.

The Purple Driveway

The Purple One left his mark on the 5-acre estate with a purple driveway that winds through the middle of the compound for the singer of “Purple Rain.” Your house would be the talk of the neighborhood with a purple driveway, just make sure you’re aware of the things they might not tell you.

Breathtaking Views

The property also has a 200-foot personal dock on Providenciales Island, which is part of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Turks and Caicos Islands are considered a British Overseas Territory. Ocean access might be a different story for your home but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a super cool looking boardwalk.

Early Beginning

Prince grew up in Minneapolis and started playing at an early age. His father, John, played in a jazz group called the Prince Rogers Trio. Prince released his first album in 1978 as a 19-year-old. You can bet the family knew some creative solutions for storing musical instruments like this.

Blue Waters

Prince famously talked about the waters of Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota in Purple Rain the film but he likely enjoyed these waters just as much. A tropical paradise vacation home might not be in the budget this year but a backyard waterfall could look pretty cool, too.
