A luxury celebrity home complete with an indoor waterpark is up for sale – but previous owners may shock you.

The property boasts a staggering 16 bathrooms and six bedrooms, and wooden vaulted ceilings that offer great acoustics.

However, some buyers may be put off by the fact the property was reportedly once owned by now disgraced singer R. Kelly, according to USA Today.

The artist is currently serving jail time for heinous crimes.

He is believed to have built the home in 1997, at the height of his fame, but it was foreclosed on in 2011, according to Crain’s Chicago Business.

It was bought by legendary singer-songwriter Rudolph Isley, best known for hits like ‘It’s Your Thing’ and ‘Shout’ as one of the Isley Brothers, in 2013.

Rudolph, who was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, restored the home with his wife Elaine.

Sadly, the star passed away in October 2023 and now his widow has put it up for sale at $2.995m (approx £2.4m).

The mansion can be found in Olympia Fields, an exclusive enclave just 33 miles from Downtown Chicago, US.

It is being marketed by realtor Alex Wolking, reports Need To Know.

Measuring 21,182 sq ft, the property stretches over three storeys, with lift access, space aplenty and impeccable interior design throughout.

It has a fitness centre, library and ‘theatre’, and the main floor is home to an ‘in-laws’ suite with a kitchenette alongside and access to the pool.

Perhaps the most striking space inside the house is the two-storey pool room.

But the home also has its own waterpark with a jungle-themed hot tub, treehouse, waterfall, grotto and club house.
