See Inside Little Richard’s Home For Sale
The late, great Little Richard's home is up for sale currently on Redfin. The way-off-the-beaten-path home is a country cottage mixed with a modest mansion when you get inside. Although the interior is a touch dated, maybe a lot, the exterior makes it seem warm and welcoming. It is essentially two homes in one with its separate entrances to each side, but a joining storm shelter. The Tennessee home boasts a huge living area of over 6,000 square feet amongst its 14 acres of land on a hill.
Looking at the two separate sides, for as flamboyant of an entertainer that Richard was, it all seems fairly modest, unlike his personality. One side seems fairly straightforward with general neutral colors, while the other side gets only a bit edgy with the blue on the walls and the occasional gold fixtures in the bathrooms.
As you look through the pictures, it's very evident the house has been vacant for quite a bit. There are stains on the ceiling and the back deck has been forgotten about and covered under leaves. However, appears to still be some random pieces of furniture inside a few of the rooms. In total, the home has six bedrooms plus a bonus room, and six-and-a-half bathrooms all under the one roof, not to mention the two full size kitchens. According to the website, the home is under contract, and at roughly $58 dollars per square foot, it really does seem like a deal after it gets a little love and attention.
