2414 Rosedale Street: $500,000. Living like Beyonce: priceless.
Now's your chance to get a piece of the queen: Her early childhood home is on the market for half a mil. The three-bed, three-bath Riverside Terrace dwelling is a charming, all-brick French traditional built in 1946, but its real value was added in 1982 when the Knowles family, featuring infant Beyonce, moved in.
Keller Williams Premier Realty knows what people are here for, and the listing cuts to the chase, opening with this declaration: "BEYONCE! MED CENTER! CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!" Other caps-lock-worthy features include "HUGE BACKYARD" and that ubiquitous post-Harvey catchphrase, "NEVER FLOODED!"
The listing also boasts the home's IMDB credits, including spots on MTV and BET, and its central location close to Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park, and NRG Reliant Stadium—Beyonce's performed in all three arenas.
Those who care more about the nearly 3,000-square-foot home's features than its past inhabitants will find original hardwood floors, an updated kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, a living room fireplace, a den and media room, and a master bedroom with a spiral staircase to a third-floor loft.
Speaking of that master, the main attraction is a raised platform that currently holds a four-poster bed. If it were our house, though, you can bet it'd be used as a stage. Sold on it? Better start packing then—everything you own in a box to the left. (We had to.)
