The 12,561-square-foot mansion in Mendham Township, N.J., where Whitney Houston wed Bobby Brown, and where much of the reality show featuring the couple was filmed, has been on and off the market since 2009.
As of this week, it is said to be privately “active,” though only buyers who have been pre-qualified with liquid assets of $1.5 million or more will be shown the property, according to Yahoo! Real Estate. The current listing price is $1.75 million.
But is the listing offensive?
“With the recent passing of Whitney Houston in Beverly Hills… it is with a heavy heart that we remind you of this great mansion,” says the listing on the Car Property Web site, which is listing the property. “Now is the time for someone to step up and buy this great house.”
The home holds many memories from Houston’s life, according to the listing copy, which takes an unusual step of mentioning some of the good and the bad from the singer’s life. The listing reads that the home holds memories “from the storied soaring success of the young Whitney Houston, to her marriage ceremony with Bobby Brown, this house and four-car garage hosted some of the music industries most infamous moments.” The listing copy also continues that “this house was also the scene of the activity that brought down this incredible musical diva over a 15-year cycle.”
