Here's your chance to live like a queen.

There's a For Sale sign in front of the longtime home of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin in suburban Detroit.

The Colonial-style brick house in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, was custom built in a gated community in 1990. Overlooking two ponds, it measures more than 4,100 square feet and features five bedrooms, 6.5 baths, a two-story great room with a fireplace, and a three-car garage. A community swimming pool and tennis courts are nearby.

The asking price: $800,000.

Souvenir hunters, take note: The house has been emptied of all its contents.

Franklin lived in Bloomfield Hills for decades before moving to a riverside apartment in downtown Detroit in 2017. She died there August 16 while receiving hospice care for advanced pancreatic cancer. The legendary gospel and soul singer of hits like "Respect," "Chain of Fools" and "Spanish Harlem" was 76.
