Diana Ross’s childhood home is the ultimate story of rags to riches. The singer’s North Endhome, which she vacated decades ago, was recently put on the market for $132,500, a whopping $130,700 more than what it was purchased for just eight months ago in May. According to the Detroit Free Press, an investor picked up the two-family home for $1,800, not even knowing that it was the pop diva’s former home. “It’s generating a lot of interest,” real estate broker Darin McLeskey said. “But, there’s also a lot of nosy people overall who just want to get inside of a famous person’s house, too.” He has since completely overhauled the property, hence the increase in value.
The house stands at 2,112 square feet, boasting four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, as well as two separate living units. The property listing notes that the home could also be converted into a larger single family home “depending on how you finish it.” The house has all new doors, windows, wiring, plumbing, insulation and drywall, and boasts two south-facing porches that are “nice and bright.” Ross reportedly called the house her home back in the ‘50s, around the same time Ross met the then-15-year-old William “Smokey” Robinson. Ross and her family outgrew the home, however, and moved away in 1958 when she was still quite young.
