In 2009, pop queen Whitney Houston first listed the New Jersey mansion where she married Bobby Brown in 1992, and where Bravo's reality series "Being Bobby Brown" was shot. Yet five years later, and two years since the singer's death, the house has floated on and off the market but still hasn't sold. Fairly unflagging interest has come from everyone—see the robust comments section of previous Curbed coverage—except, of course, qualified buyers.

Now the 12,600-square-foot spread is back on the market, this time asking $1.5 million—60 percent of its initial $2.5 million ask. The listing boasts lots of wooded property, a tennis court and a pool. Photos reveal an interior with vertical louvre blinds sweeping across the circular perimeter, glass blocks in the bathroom, and a custom built-in bed on a taupe carpet platform.
