Prince Bought The Minneapolis Home From ‘Purple Rain’ Just Months Before His Passing

The house from Prince’s 1984 film “Purple Rain” was purchased last year by none other than the Purple One himself.

According to the Star Tribune, Prince paid $117,000 in cash for the three-bedroom house which sits at 3420 Snelling Ave. in August 2015. The publication reports that the musician never got the chance to begin the required renovations.

The home’s selling agent Deborah Larson told the Tribune, “I don’t think he had a plan. I think he just wanted it.”

Larson said she didn’t know who bought the house only within hours of receiving a phone call for an offer. But when she saw NPG Music Publishing on the paperwork, she knew the purchase was by Prince.
