Beyoncé and Jay-Z might live in a spacious California mansion now, but before the Destiny's Child alum was sipping lemonade in the lap of luxury, she grew up in lovely home in Houston, Texas. The Riverside Terrace home, featured in the singer's early home videos, quietly appeared on the housing market this November giving a rare opportunity to see inside the place where she grew up.
Besides being the former home of Queen B herself, the house has some major selling points. For example, prospective buyers can look forward to living near Houston's museum district and it's major universities. Additionally, the three-bedroom home features two fireplaces, including one in the open concept living space.
The house has two stories and a lofted third floor. The master bedroom features an elevated platform with plenty of closet space―in case you have a wardrobe like Bey's. A spiral staircase leads to the third floor office space giving this master suite a multi-purpose bonus room. Some other features worth nothing? A renovated kitchen with a double oven, three full bathrooms, and two bathtubs all come to mind.
Records show the Knowles family purchased the French Traditional home in 1986 and lived there until Beyoncé was five. Currently, the property is listed at $500,000 with The Upshaw Group and Keller Williams Realty. Ready to buy Beyoncé's former pad? You can see the full listing at TheUpshawGroup.com.
