Luxury buyers seem perfectly happy to leave Prince's former villa standing on the real estate market.

The late artist once owned a stunning home in the hills of El Paraiso, just outside Marbella, Spain.

But he sold it in 2006; and now the current owner has been trying to offload it for two years, according to Bloomberg.

It's now being offered at just under C$7.5 million.

Engel and Volkers is marketing the property as a "palatial, charming" home that is opulent from floor to ceiling.

Upon entering the house, you see an "enormous colonial-style double staircase with white marble balustrades" leading down into an entrance hall with a chandelier hanging overhead.

There are panoramic windows in the living room, breakfast room and dining area. Three upstairs bedrooms have marble bathrooms and a private terrace area with views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Prince bought the property in 1998 as a gift to his then-wife Mayte Garcia, before it was sold eight years later.

Engel and Volkers said the home served as an "inspiring scenario for many of his beautiful songs."

Outside features include a 6,000 square meters of gardens, as well as a heated pool and a tennis court.

But this isn't the only place that a property formerly owned by Prince has hit the market.

Prince's former home on Toronto's Bridle Path is also for sale at $12.79 million.
