Take a Look Inside Prince’s Caribbean Island Estate
The private island estate of Prince is on the market, check out how The Purple One vacationed.
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.
Up for Auction
The property is up for auction through Premiere Estates and the auction will took place in 2018. It was previously for sale for $12 million but didn’t sell. Make sure to do these 20 things to make your home sell faster.
Two Private Beaches
The 10,000-square-foot estate features two beaches and rises 40 feet above sea level. There are six bedrooms, six full baths and one half bath. There is also a tennis court and a guard home. Think this home is big? Check out some of the biggest homes in the U.S.
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.
Premiere Estates is offering tours by appointment of the property. Those serious about buying it had to submit a sealed bid, along with proof of funds and a registration deposit of $100,000. There are always a million things to consider before buying a house but learn what the 10 most important are.
Prince died April 21, 2016 after an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. Prince won eight Grammys in his career and became one of the most influential musicians around for his genre-blending sound. Prince’s music was often ahead of its time, like these tech products you need to add at home.
Prince’s biggest hits included “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” “Little Red Corvette,” “1999,” “Raspberry Beret,” and several more through the course of his 40-plus year career. You can play all of those hits through Alexa and discover 10 other mind-blowing things Alexa can do.
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.
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.
Focus on the Beauty
Outside of the purple driveway, the property is subdued in its décor. Instead it is allowed to be what it is: a tropical vacation home.
No Fancy Pool
There’s no Olympic-sized swimming pool at the property, just a small wading pool for people to relax in during the afternoon. Scope out these amazing kinds of pools, if that’s what you’re looking for.
On one beachside of the property sits a large gazebo for people to sit and relax as the watch the waves. Get your gazebo into shape and check out these 34 awesome outdoor ideas.
These patio planters stay out of the way and provide additional décor to the space. Planters can come from all sorts of things, including crazy kitchen castoffs.
Fire Pit Feature
Prince didn’t say “let’s go crazy” with this fire pit but it does the job for those coming back up from a swim in the sea. If you’re traveling to a place without a fire pit, there’s a way you can bring your own. We’ll show you how here.
Watch the Tide
Just picture the schools of fish swimming by or dolphins, the birds flying by. This might as well be a postcard for paradise.
