    And, anyone who’s read Madonna’s biography will know that she was a 1976 graduate of Rochester Adams High School which was near her house.

    Once owned by her father and stepmother, the pair sold this Michigan home back in July 2001.

    Since then, it almost burned down in 2008 (under suspicious circumstances) and was unoccupied until 2012 when it eventually sold again for around £90,000.

    That owner completely refurbished the house which now boasts 2,700 sq. foot space including five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

    If you happen to be in the area, there will be an open house there this Saturday from 5-8PM.

    And, who knows? Maybe Madonna will even be there. The area is obviously close to her heart after she’s invested a lot into building up Detroit, having invested in Detroit’s Downtown Boxing Gym and asking Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to invest in the city, too.
