Aretha Franklin’s brick mansion sold for a rock-bottom price shortly after her death this year.

The late soul singer, who died at 76 years old in August, resided primarily in a 5,600-square-foot brick home near the Detroit golf club. And according to The Detroit News, the mansion quietly sold for $300,000 back in October. (RELATED: Aretha Franklin Dead At 76. Here’s What We Know)

The house, which was built in 1927, is located due south of 7 Mile Road. It has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three fireplaces. And while it sounds like a lavish existence, volatile and oftentimes rock-bottom real estate prices in Detroit kept the price tag relatively low.

For what it’s worth … Franklin has another 4,148-square-foot property in the Bloomfield Township area, located just outside of Detroit. The colonial — which boasts five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a three-car garage, a spa sauna and balconies — is listed $800,000. That property remains on the market.
