Just 45 minutes from Kid Rock’s childhood estate, a 22-room mansion on a sprawling 6-acres in Bruce Township, Michigan, sits his former riverfront home in Detroit. He sold the place for $2 million in 2019, and now, it looks like the luxurious mansion is back on the market.
What’s it going to run you? Just a hair over Kid Rock’s selling price, a cool $2.1 million. And while the mansion may be a step down from his childhood home in size, the 6-bed, 6-bath, .85-acre property couldn’t be situated in a better place. In fact, the Ritchie family just sold their estate complete with a five-car garage, guest house, horse barn, tennis court, and pool, for $650,000 in 2016, according to Morgan and Milzow Realtors.
So what’s with the price difference? Well, for one, Kid Rock’s former riverfront mansion is located in an exclusive neighborhood overlooking the Detroit River. What’s more? If one of you Outsiders happens to close on the home, you’ll be neighbors with the mayor of Detroit. Not the worst company to keep.
According to Zillow, the “full and breathtaking view” of the river boasts a custom-built boathouse with lifts for jet skis and a rooftop patio. And we haven’t even gotten to the house yet. Inside, you’ll find hardwood floors, a massive kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, central air, and of course, a custom master bathroom. Connected to the house proper is a two-car heated garage. Next is an outdoor entertainment system complete with two TVs reportedly operational in any season (which in Michigan is saying a lot).
The property itself is professionally landscaped, and the backyard looks like it was designed for throwing a party. Skyline Realty Group is managing the real estate listing.
Kid Rock Owns Property in Tennessee and Florida, Wants to See In-N-Out Expand to Both Places
Kid Rock may have sold his Detroit mansion. But he still owns a condo in Nashville and a beachfront home in Florida. He recently made a case on social media for fast food icon In-N-Out Burger to open locations in either place. Of course, we Outsiders, like Kid Rock, would prefer a Nashville location. He even went so far as to include a link to a pamphlet selling the benefits of opening a business in Nashville.
Even state officials like Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis and Tennessee’s Governor Bill Lee got involved with the debate.
