Whitney Houston’s former New Jersey home was recently purchased by a fan for $1.5 million.
The 12,561-square-foot mansion was built in 1992, state tax records show. That year, the buyer, a 33-year-old emergency care doctor and real estate investor named Matthew Krauthamer, was in elementary school and Houston was enjoying international success thanks to her biggest hit, a cover of “I Will Always Love You,” from The Bodyguard.

“I’m very conscious of preserving what she created there,” Krauthamer, who described himself as a “big fan” of Houston, told NJ.com last week, days before Zillow reported on June 2, 2014, about his purchase of the mansion. “She had a lot of love and treated people very well. Her house was her family. Some of them lived there and some of them stayed there.”
The five-acre, ranch-style, contemporary curved property contains five bedroom, six bathrooms, skylights, wall-length windows, a recording studio, domed skylights, lush lawns, a swimming pool, a sauna and a hot tub, according to multiple property listings.
