According public records obtained by the newspaper, the home was purchased for $300,000 late last month by a resident of the Detroit suburb of Northville. An empty half-acre lot next to the property was included in the sale.

Aretha bought the house, which was built in 1927, in 1993. The brick mansion boats a slate roof and features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, three fireplaces and a three-car garage.

As previously reported by, another home owned by Franklin — a colonial-style mansion located in the affluent Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Township — is on the market for $800,000. The 4,100-square-foot residence features five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms and a sauna room. The house was custom-built in 1990.

Aretha Franklin was living in a riverfront Detroit apartment when she passed away August 16 at the age of 76 of pancreatic cancer. She left her entire estate to her four sons.
