From Detroit Free News

Detroit — The last property owned in Detroit by Aretha Franklin, a historic mansion next to the Detroit Golf Club, has been sold by the legendary entertainer’s estate.

The 5,600-square-foot brick home on Hamilton Road was bought for $300,000 in late October by a Northville resident, public records show. An empty half-acre lot next to the home was also part of the deal.

The mansion has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three fireplaces, according to pubic records. It also boasts of leaded glass windows, a three-car garage and a back yard adjacent to the north course of the Detroit Golf Club.

“There are no other Detroit properties” that were owned by Franklin, said Sabrina Garrett-Owens, the personal representative of Franklin’s estate, in a Friday email to The Detroit News. “There is no link with (the) new owner,” Garrett-Owens added.
