Prince's Former Toronto Home Is Up for Sale
The house, in all its purple glory, can be yours for just $16.9 million
Published Nov 29, 2019While Toronto's Bridle Path neighbourhood currently counts Drake and Gordon Lightfoot amongst its notable residents, Prince also famously owned a house in the area in the early 2000s — and it is now on the market once again.
The two-level, 14,280-square-foot California ranch-style bungalow, located at 61 the Bridle Path, is available for a mere $16.9 million, the Financial Post reports.
The home was sold after Prince and his then-wife Manuela Testolini divorced in 2007, but the current owners have changed little of the Purple One's interior decor.
The basement features purple shag carpet, while Prince's iconic Love Symbol is etched into a pair of glass doors leading into the home's main floor dining room. The property also features a tennis court, a hair salon (also in purple), swimming pool and 22 parking spaces.
As the Financial Post points out, Ontario land registry records show that Prince and Testolini paid $5.5 million for the property in 2001. The house also sold for $8.325 million in 2011 and has been listed for sale four other times since, with prices ranging from $12.788 million to $17.88 million.

Prince's time in Toronto also saw him partially record his 2004 LP Musicology at Mississauga's Metalworks Studios. The late icon's estate just reissued his 1999 album, which arrives today through Warner.
