The New Jersey mansion that was the setting for Whitney Houston's well publicized drug problems and her tumultuous marriage to Bobby Brown is being sold with an asking price of $1.75 million. Houston died Saturday in California.
Broker Robert Cross of CarProperty.com has the exclusive off-market listing. He is requiring prospective buyers to prove at least $1.5 million in liquid assets before a showing.
The property at 22 North Gate Road in Mendham Township, N.J., was first listed for $2.5 million in 2009, but lingered in the post-recession market.
The price was later cut by Coldwell Banker to $2.1 million, and then $1.97 million in 2010, but was eventually taken off the market. In January 2011, Kienlen Lattmann Realtors listed it for $1.75 million, but no buyer was found.

The 12,561-square-foot mansion has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a rounded facade, on five acres of land. It appeared in 2005 in the short-lived Bravo reality series "Being Bobby Brown" featuring the then-married couple.
Houston, who was born in Newark, N.J., sold the neighboring house, 1 Cross Way, for $940,000 in 2010. The singer also had property in North Bergen, N.J., and Alpharetta, Ga., as well as a home in Laguna Beach, Calif., where she reportedly had been living.
Cross calls the home "a great conversation piece for anyone."
