Back in 2015, it was reported that Beyoncé and Jay-Z acquired a former Presbyterian church built in 1925 that was turned into a seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home in New Orleans’ Historic Garden District. They recently put it up for sale, bumping it up from an estimated worth of more than $3 million, according to its Zillow listing, to put it on the market for $4.45 million.

Enveloped in lush greenery, the three-story building is 13,300 square-feet and known as La Casa de Castille, with one main residence and three apartments that are 1,000 square feet each.
In the past, it’s been used for events, including weddings, it has a rooftop garden, and the acoustics are reportedly stellar. An unnamed “Grammy winner” was reportedly quoted in the listing saying, “‘The acoustics and vibes are great. I did my best writing ever, while watching the sunset from the rooftop garden!’” Bey, is that you?!
Despite all of its great features, it’s unclear if the artists ever actually occupied the space for a period of time. The home went on sale a few weeks ago and that development follows a fire that broke out at the residence in July. Investigated as arson, at the time the fire department told media that the home had been vacant for a while.
