The Property of Prince (includes pictures of Prince's house)

This thread is about property Prince owns. Prince practically owns a whole block in Chanhassen on Gaplin Blvd. just down the road from Paisley Park.

Property #1
156.07 acres worth $7,962,600 with water front on Lake Ann and Lake Lucy.

The above land is in the back of the following properties

Property #2

Next door at 7141 GALPIN BLVD Prince has a house 19 acres:

Valued at $1,108,900

I think this is the purple and yellow house I took photos of from above. There is where the Gangster Glam video was shot in the back:

Ugh, sorry to do that to you.....

Property #3
He also owns 7021 Galpin on 6 acres valued at $366,400

If there is intersted I can post some photos take from the air of the yellow and purple house back in 1995.

Accoring to the article written in the Star Tribune, about Prince owing taxes, he owns a total of 12 properties in Chanhassen. I think it's common knowledge that he has leveled both houses. The purple and yellow house was originally all purple, then painted yellow, with purple trim. Around 1996 it was painted white with black trim. I've seen a picture of it in blue with red trim, but I'm not sure if the pic was manipulated or if it had changed once again. The last time I saw it, it was white with black trim.

I don't think that first picture is the front of the yellow house. The house is YELLOW, not really brick, but I could be wrong.

Eric Leeds mentioned this a while ago that Prince owned dozens of properties in the state.

Not sure how that is working for him now with the housing crash and all the taxes that have to be paid on properties that may have lost their value.

Ernest, I will find some photos I took. I am guessin that may be the front of the house (with brick) or one next store to the purple yellow one.

I have several shots I took from the air. Some were in Per's book.

I will dig them up and post them.

Interesting. Anyone else have info?

That is/was the front of the house, when it was painted purple.

As much as I LOVE Prince, I do find this thread kind of creepy and too evasive. I mean, this stuff is really private and shouldn't be posted all over the net! Just my opinion...

Prince is GORGEOUS. I'm inspired. GOD is GREAT. Is there anything else to say? lol

Oh relax. It is public domain and who gives a shit in the end. You've got people here asking for the color of Prince's shit after he eats a bowl of Chex, but pictures of his brightly colored and carnival-esque homes is somehow out of line?

Zzzz.

Speaking of properties, has "the egg" been clad? I remember reading on here that bits and pieces were hanging/falling off it.

Frankly, I don't see what the big deal is about knowing where Prince lives, or about the properties he owns. Heck, you have Hollywoods tours of stars homes, and thousands of people take these tours monthly... if not weekly!

I actually visited Prince's former house in Toronto on Bridal Path about 3 years ago, and took a picture. Big deal! It's not like I planned on breaking and entering. People take pictures of the homes of the rich and famous ALL THE TIME!

There's nothing "creepy" about this. I find it interesting, and this doesn't mean I'm going to camp outside of his house, and/or approach his car if he pulled up.

Now THAT would be creepy... and crazy... and an invasion.

Get a grip people! Knowing where Prince lives for us SANE fans, is cool. It's the crazy ones that you need to worry about... and other than that rediculous "Ke$ha" incident, I haven't heard of any Prince home invasion where he was put in harms way.

The public is squeezin' you kiddo. You'd better kick ass on your next album or else!

Then before you start waving flags to shut something down, go figure out the truth of public domain.

Every state has a County Assessor site (or similar) where you can look up a property by address, see it's value, when it changed hands (ie bought/sold), and who did that transactions.

It's anyone's business that wants to know. That's why it's PUBLIC knowledge. Besides, the house doesn't even exist anymore, so cool your fam jets.

that's all true, but posting street addresses on a fan site is a little over the line and completely unnecessary. what exactly is the point of this thread other than to post the addresses where the nutjobs on this site, like Tame, can track him down?

The Purple Yellow one?

Yes. He had the house on Kiowa Trail torn down after his father passed away. It was a purple house. John was living there in his latter years, once Prince bought and moved into the Galpin house (the yellow house). The Kiowa Trail house is the one w/ the gates that had a peace sign and a heart on them. The Galpin house was torn down in more recent years, after his divorce from Manuela. There was a rumor that he had put the debris from the house in a few flatbeds and had it delivered to her. A way of saying "You want that house, here it is!" Not sure if that's a true story, but if it is - boy was upset!

If you look at Google Earth, you can see the updated photo of just the land on Galpin. The windmill in the backyard (which was transplanted from the Kiowa Trail house, and was originally from overseas) is no longer there, but you can see a path to it. I think there used to be a gazebo out there too, but I could be wrong on that. The tennis court is still just north of where the house stood. You can also see the symbol in the middle of the circular driveway. Prince mentioned the Galpin house in "Zannalee" at the beginning.

Cut and paste this into Google Earth, or in Google Maps and look at the Hybrid view, and that's the Galpin property: 44°52'23.50"N 93°34'22.76"W

(I took that from what Google Earth gave me when I located the property, but it works if you enter it directly.)

If you head a bit south and east, you'll see how close Paisley Park is located to the old Galpin property.

People can't even stand outside Paisley Park and take a picture without being harassed by some big payrolled goon. Do you think anyone is going to get on the Galpin property without harsher interaction? There is still a guard house at the base of the property.

Besides, the houses don't exist. They're just pieces of land. A bunch of dirt and grass and trees. He doesn't live on them, so what's the harm in knowing where they are, anyway? Prince mentions that he lives on Galpin in "Zannalee", so really - it's his fault.

Yeah sarge, we just received a call, we got a disturbance on Galpin

Well, are U gonna go check it out?

Really? Oh geez

You think Tame hasn't already documented this shit??? You underestimate her.

Knowing where Prince lives is nothing creepy. All information I posted here can be found on the internet for those in the dark ages. If Prince did not want us to know where he lives, then why use his real name on the parcel? I am not saying he does want people to know where he lived, but he must have known this information was public. And he made it known to everyone who lives around where he lives. Been caught speeding a few times on his way to Paisly Park to record a few songs. Everyone in MN knows where Prince lives.

Anyways, I lived in Minnesota. We all knew where Prince lived, we drove by it every now and then (even flew over it). It was never a big deal. No one tried to knock on his door (that I am aware of), or enter his property (Security!).

Prince does not have that problem in Minnesota. Now you go to LA, with all you crazy MF'ers out there and then, I see your point! Cause some of you HAVE actually tried to get in his house!

Midwest and Canda are a lot different in perspectives. We do respect his privacy. We just like to see where he lives every now and then and appreciate his sucess.

When your a public figure, YOUR A PUBLIC FIGURE.

Prince could and has a walked around dressed in sweat clothes without any of these things and no ones recognized him.

If you want privacy, you retire and go hide somewhere, don't wear flashy clothes, make up and drive flashy cars. Don't be so obvious.

Notjubs like Tame would have had his address by now.

Trust that there is no plot to assassinate Prince coming from Prince.org.
