The three-bedroom, four-bathroom property was once the longtime guest house of the legendary Whitney Houston, who bought the home in 1993 for $537,000, the New York Post reported. The Grammy Award winning artist sold the place in 2010 for $940,000.

“This expansive ranch with a contemporary flair sits on a flat 5-acre lot with meticulous landscaping and stunning curb appeal,” the listing on Sotheby’s International Realty said. “Hard to find, complete one-floor living.”

The house appears to be secluded enough from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but not too far from surrounding neighbors. The home underwent a renovation in 2016, the listing said, and the area where there once was a recording studio has been converted into a media room, gym and office.
