Diana Ross’ childhood home for sale
Detroit — A home on the northeast side where a young Diana Ross once lived is on the market. And you can own it for $132,500.
The Motown singer's childhood home, built in 1913, was remodeled in 2018. It is listed on Estatetly as a 2,112-square-foot home with four bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms.
The listing owner says the home, which is located at 633 Belmont Street, features two large south-facing porches and has new doors, windows, wiring, plumbing, insulation and drywall.
Ross rose to fame as the lead singer of The Supremes during the 1960s, and the group went on to have 12 singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart including, "Baby Love," "Come See About Me," "Stop! In the Name of Love" and "You Can't Hurry Love."
After Ross went solo in 1970, she released "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" on her debut album.
Ross lived in the home with her mother Ernestine, a school teacher, her father Fred, an army soldier, and four siblings. They were neighbors with singer Smokey Robinson, who first met Ross when she was 8 years old, according to the Music Origins Project.
The family lived in the Belmont Street home until Ross was 14. Then they relocated to the Brewster-Douglass housing projects, on St. Antoine Street, where she lived while attending Cass Technical High School.
