DETROIT (AP) – On again. Off again. A Detroit mansion once owned by Motown Records founder Berry Gordy is back on the market.

The Detroit News reports that the 10,500-square-foot home in the city’s Boston-Edison neighborhood is listed for nearly $1.6 million.

The Italian Renaissance Revival home was listed last year for $1.3 million before it was taken off the market. Attorney and owner Cynthia Reaves listed it in 2010 for about $1.4 million.

It sits on 2.2 acres and was built in 1917 by lumber baron Nels Michelson.

Gordy bought it 1967 and lived there a few years before moving to Los Angeles.
