A 7,535-square-foot Spanish villa, once owned by Prince, has yet to find a buyer, despite having been on the market for two years. It’s asking €5.25 million ($5.93 million).

The six-bedroom, six-bathroom, swanky salmon-colored property is set in the hills of El Paraiso, a wealthy residential area in southern Spain overlooking the Mediterranean.

Bloomberg reports that the late star bought the villa in 1998 as a wedding gift for his then wife, Mayte Garcia, and sold up in 2006.

According to the listing, the house has a large colonial style double staircase with white marble balustrades, a chandeliered entrance hall, gardens with subtropical trees, a tennis court, an outdoor heated poor, a terrace and an outdoor jacuzzi.

“The fact that it once belonged to Prince undoubtedly adds to the value of the house,” Engel & Volkers said in a statement to Bloomberg. “The house is very special. It’s a type of construction and decoration that is not to everyone’s taste, but the owner is in no rush to sell and the price isn’t negotiable.”

Prince died last week at his home in Minnesota. Perhaps the tragedy will bring renewed interest to the seemingly difficult to sell house.
