The administrator of Prince's estate has denied plans to sell his Paisley Park home.

The denial comes just one day after it was reported a request had been filed asking a judge for permission to sell several of the late musician's properties.

The court filing had listed Paisley Park amongst the properties that could be sold.

Last night (August 6), Bremer Trust issued a statement refuting that plan. It read: "Bremer Trust, the special administrator for the Prince Rogers Nelson estate, has no plans to sell either Paisley Park of the property referred to as the 'Purple Rain' house."

The Hollywood Reporter says Bremer Trust had filed papers asking for permission to sell nearly 20 properties owned by Prince, with an estimated total value of $28 million.

Paisley Park is located in Chanhassen, Minnesota and includes a recording studio, concert venue and bank vault in its grounds.

It was reported shortly after his death that the musician's brother-in-law wanted to turn his former home into a tribute museum.

Maurice Phillips, husband of Prince's sister Tyka, told The Sun: "It would be for the fans. He was all about the fans - this would remember his music, which is his legacy," Phillips added. "Prince was always private but would have wanted his music remembered."
