Prince, the legendary and iconic performer who died tragically April 21st, spent a majority of his time at his estate within the Paisley Park Studios in Minnesota. To get away from the dreadfully cold midwest winters, The Purple One escaped to paradise — within the lap of luxury on the island of Providenciales, in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

In 2010, Prince purchased the secluded 10,000 square foot island mansion for a stunning $12 million. Located on an idilic peninsula, the Turtle Tail estate includes 10-bedrooms, 10-bathrooms, a lighted tennis court, 200 foot boat dock, its own private white sand beach and, of course, a purple driveway. Beyond the grand entrance foyer is a sweeping hexagonal great room with remarkable views of the Atlantic Ocean.

“He moved in without any great fanfare, but still unmistakably Prince with the first project at his new home being the addiction of his trademark ‘Purple’ through the renovation of the estates driveway,” said Robert Greenwood of Christie’s International Real Estate in the Turks and Caicos.

“He was often seen around town or at the Amanyara, especially during the New Year’s celebration where live music was part of the entertainment and potential guest appearances by the legend himself. However, he always remained reserved and private, something that the Turks and Caicos offers those who are continually in the spotlight,” Greenwood added.

The main house on the spacious island property includes a great room with ocean views on two sides and marina on the other, foyer, dining room, spacious kitchen with high end appliances, undercover terrace with large indoor/outdoor cocktail area, ultra spacious master suite with walk-in closets, gym, studio, media room and home theater.

And we’re sure Prince’s estate had a ping pong table or two…

“Prince was a homeowner and frequent visitor of the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands,” said Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Dr Rufus Ewing and the Minister of Tourism Porsha Stubbs-Smith. “He was often seen enjoying the sites of the islands and mingling with locals and visitors alike. On his many visits he also worked with local artists helping them to improve their craft.”
