Beyoncé and Jay-Z are ready to let go of their unique New Orleans property, Dirt reports. While it’s unknown if the couple ever lived in the space, they sure are confident about its value—just a week after listing the estate for $3.5 million, they bumped the price up to $4.45 million. While it’s unknown how much the couple paid for the home in 2015, it was listed for $2.6 million prior to their purchasing it.
The 13,300 square foot home is known as La Casa de Castille, a title it owes to its origins as a church. Built in the mid 1920s in an ornate Spanish Baroque style, the grandeur of the space remained even after its remodel in 2000. The three story building is currently set up with one main residence and three apartments with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms between the spaces, along with a spacious rooftop garden. The photos attached to the listing are mysteriously the same that accompanied it in 2015 prior to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s purchase, which is particularly questionable considering a fire occurred earlier this year at the property. No damages from the fire are mentioned, so it’s safe to say it wasn’t dramatically affected, though painting the home before closing is offered to potential buyers.

“The acoustics and vibes are great,” an unspecified Grammy winner is quoted in the listing. “I did my best writing ever, while watching the sunset from the rooftop garden!” The billionaire couple owns less real estate than you might expect, but the New Orleans property is small potatoes compared to their $26 million East Hampton home and $88 million Bel Air mansion.
