It was sold to a retired couple from Maryland, reports the Associated Press.

The house was designed by C.Howard Crane best known as a cinema architect whose works include the lavish Fox Theatre in downtown Detroit.

White now lives in Nashville. He told the Associated Press in a 2006 interview that he had to leave Detroit because he: “couldn’t take the negativity anymore.”
