Prince's Lavish Private Island Estate Is Up for Auction — Again

Come with your "highest and best" offer for Prince's Turks and Caicos manse.

Prince's dreamy 10,000-square-foot mansion on the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos is going up for auction this summer. And if you want to own it — and become a private island destination party host to rival Richard Branson — prepare to plunk down some cash.

Prospective buyers will need to kick down $100,000 for the chance to bid on it in July, and they've been given no guidelines as to value and price for the five-acre property, which boasts a private dock, two beaches and a tennis court: "Your highest and best bid is the most effective method," according to the buyers' information sheet.

This is the second time this estate has been up for auction since the star's untimely death in April 2016. Christie's International Real Estate listed the home for $12 million less than a month later, but was eventually pulled off the market. At the time, the property was reported to have 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, but the current listing has these set at six bedrooms and six bathrooms.

A Christie's rep told TMZ in 2016 that even though Prince purchased the property in 2010, he hadn't moved that much stuff in — but that there might be some Purple Rain artifacts in the house. There's also huge purple driveway to remind you of the artist.

The property also reportedly suffered some damage at the hands of Hurricane Irma last year. According to The Blast, a probate attorney for the estate filed an insurance claim "as a result of damage to the property from Hurricane Irma" that required “securing bids from a contractor and managing the repair process.”

If buying Prince's island paradise is slightly out of your price range, you can always take a public tour of Paisley Park, his creative complex in Minneapolis, for as low as $38.50.
