Eminem’s Detroit Mansion Is Up For Sale And It’s Not What You’d Expect Inside
Eminem has decided it’s time to let his beloved mansion north of Detroit go, but he won’t be happy with the loss he’s going to make on it! Not that the money matters to the rapper who is reportedly the 6th richest in the world, but the listing price is reflective of the sharp downturn and continual decline of the Detroit housing market in the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis.
Eminem initially forked out $5 million for the mansion and estate back in 2003, just after his motion picture and children’s classic 8-Mile took the box office by storm. The 5 bedroom (each with its own sh*tter) dream pad is listed by agent Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel-Bir at a fraction under $2 million.
Location aside, it’s a bloody bargain! The gated residence boasts of 1570 square meters of living space. That’s nearly 4 basketball courts worth of floor space, meaning you really wouldn’t have to lay eyes on your servants unless you wanted to!
Other features on the 6-acre block of land include 2 tennis courts which double as dual basketball courts, a huge natural pond to frolic in, a waterfall and a bitchin’ pool complex. The 3-tier pool is pretty bloody massive boasting a sweet Jacuzzi up the top level. One can only imagine the mischief that could be made in the tepid hot tub after the sun sets.
The 1986-built mansion used to belong to the CEO of K-mart and has vast wooden floors that sprawl between the 22-room occupancy. There’s also a guard house to keep out those pesky Mormon door-knockers!
The interior decor may be to blame for the low asking price. Some pretty awful curtains choices add an unnecessary ‘grandmotherly touch’ to the place. And there is a weird, unexplained full sized chef figure holding a menu sign in the poolside cabana. Whilst we don’t claim to know everything about the successful rapper, there are some elements of the place that don’t seem so ‘Eminim-y’.
