The House that Aretha Built: The late Queen of Soul’s Detroit-area home on the market for $800K


Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesIt’s been just over two months since Aretha Franklin died, but the Queen of Soul’s home in the affluent Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Township, Michigan, has already been put on the market. According to, the asking price for the colonial-style mansion is a relatively affordable $800,000.

The 4,100-square-foot residence features five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as a sauna room. The house was custom-built in 1990, and the property is located next to the gated community’s lap pool and two ponds.

An earlier article reports that Aretha also owned a waterfront condo in Detroit and two properties in the Motor City suburb of Highland Park.

Franklin was 76 when she passed away on August 16 of pancreatic cancer. She left her entire estate to her four sons.
