Attention Prince: Your Purple Palace Calls From Queen Village

This home formerly known as someone else's will require a renovation kiss.

This place just needs some extra time — to buy new window treatments and paint — and your renovation kiss. Because right now it’s a Prince-ly palace: aggressively purple, from the shutters outside to the living room walls; from the grape-juice velvet dining room chairs to the matching velvet window swags.

Putting all that aside, this four-bedrdoom Queen Village home is rather terrific. After all, there is a marble gas fireplace and a kitchen stocked with fancypants appliances, which leads out to a lovely patio. There are surprisingly spare bedrooms on the second floor as well as a laundry room (seriously: Prince is not going down to the basement). The master suite — also with a sort of Prince vibe — features huge closets and a full, en-suite bathroom. 

Pro-tip: When you are negotiating your offer on this property, make sure you come away with the unironic Mona Lisa hanging in the living room. Even if you have to offer full-ask.
