When Prince wasn’t toiling away on some futuristic sex-funk in an immense, windowless Minneapolis compound, you might have found him frolicking in the sun at this private island estate in the Turks & Caicos.
Don’t believe us? Look no further than the purple driveway stretching from the landing dock to the 10,000-square-foot mansion. No more proof is needed. And on July 12, all five acres of Prince’s paradise can be your’s when it goes to auction.
Called Turtle Tail, Prince’s property sits on the south shores of secluded Providenciales island, forming its own peninsula with two private beaches and tennis courts, while the indoors counts six bedrooms, six bathrooms and a surfeit of insane views from 40-feet above sea level.
And more than that, it’s where the Purple One found comfort and tranquility in a cruel world. Where the electric workhorse lived out his most leisurely days, sun-dappled and beautiful as salty beads of the Atlantic rolled softly down his cheek like the tears in your eyes and the tears of sorrow. Perhaps in the middle of a game of paddleball.
