Prince’s Turks and Caicos Estate
By Tim Cotroneo
Interested in living like a Prince in Turks and Caicos? You can realize this dream by purchasing the iconic musician’s $9.9 million estate on the southern shore of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
This six bedroom oceanfront mansion is located in the upscale Turtle Tail area of Providenciales. The property spans almost six acres and is positioned on 40 feet of elevation.
Travel Dreams Magazine caught up with Bernadette Hunt, one of the top Real Estate Brokers in Turks and Caicos, to learn about property details.
Q: As a Real Estate Broker, how do you determine if someone is serious about purchasing a home in Providenciales from someone who is curious because the owner was Prince?
“That’s an interesting question and I know from experience when someone is a genuine purchaser. A simple backround search on a potential customer also reveals a lot. The majority of the customers who viewed this property are existing clients of my firm and are more than qualified as a purchaser. The majority of the clients I meet have a real apprecation for all our island has to offer. This makes selling real estate a pleasure here in the Turks and Caicos.”
Q: Which rooms, outdoor areas, or unique aspects of the home provide the “wow” factor? ”
“The family room provides you with panoramic ocean views and marina views. The house is elevated and the depth and vibrancy of the ocean colors are mesmerizing from this room. “
Q: I read that the home has a purple driveway. What other aspects of the home speak to Prince’s personality and imagination?
“Prior to purchasing this estate, Prince vacationed at Amanyara Resort. He ultimately renovated a suite on the Western wing of his home to incorporate the feeling and décor of his favorite Turks and Caicos Resort.”
Q: What is your favorite part of the home? “
My favorite part of the home is the pool area which allows you to enjoy the beautiful ocean views with total privacy from the boats going by on the ocean.
Q: You’ve been a long-time Turks and Caicos resident and business person. Did you ever meet Prince on island?
“Regrettably I never had the pleasure of meeting Prince, but it has been a pleasure and a privilege to be involved in the marketing of his estate in the islands.”
