The former estate of “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince” just hit the market for $12,788,000. Located in Toronto’s exclusive Bridle Path neighborhood, the six bedroom, ten bathroom mansion spans 14,280 square feet and sits on two acres of private land.
Prince bought the home in 2001 during his marriage to Manuela Testolini, a Toronto businesswoman. While living at the estate, he produced Musicology, an album which was partially recorded in Mississauga, Ontario — it became his most commercially successful work since the early 1990s. When the couple split in 2006, the property went up for sale, but not before Prince had left his mark on the luxury residence.
The home, which has been listed by Forest Hill Realty Inc. Brokerage, has a chef inspired kitchen, clad in off-white marble with Downsview cabinetry and a large island. There’s an elegant dining room for entertaining, with floor-to-ceiling windows and etched glass French doors. The living area has a relaxed vibe, featuring a gas fireplace, built-in television and sound system.
Intricate, carved wooden doors lead the way to the master suite, which opens onto a patio. The space boasts an expansive walk-in closet and a sumptuous ensuite with an oversized skylight, soaker tub, walk-in shower and glass brick accent wall. The state-of-the-art gym features cardio machines, weight-training equipment, a cedar sauna and hot tub.
There’s also a games room with shag carpet, a billiards table, wet bar and comfortable couches. Prince’s ever-changing hair was likely coiffed in the adjacent salon, which has two chairs, a washing station and massage table for spa treatments. The outdoor living area includes a swimming pool, tennis courts and heated cabana with a three-piece ensuite kitchen.
The estate was previously listed by the current owners in 2014, but it’s probably no coincidence that the property was put back on the market just days after the superstar’s death on April 21st. Check out more photos of Prince’s former Bridle Path residence below.
