Tina Turners £61m huge Swiss estate with own boat dock and mountain views

Tina Turner died at her home in Switzerland on Wednesday, which she and her husband Erwin Bach had purchased for $76 million (£61 million) two years prior.

The beautiful estate is a whopping 260,000 square-foot, made up of ten buildings in total.

The grounds boast their own pond, pool, stream and boat deck – which is ideal as their home was located next to Lake Zurich.

Further details about Tina and Erwin’s beautiful home remain private, but pictures demonstrate their sprawling estate.

All the buildings are painted a lovely shade of white, matching the snow capped mountains on the opposite side of the lake. Adding a pop of colour, the shutters on the windows appear to be painted teal.

The property is surrounded by greenery that's all fenced off from the general public.

There’s a large black metal gate at the end of the drive leading up to the main house, where devastated fans of Tina’s have been leaving flowers and candles to pay their respects to the late singer.

White birch trees line the couple’s driveway.

According to Mail Online, ahead of buying the beautiful property Tina and German-born Erwin had to gain Swiss citizenship so that they could purchase it as non-Swiss residents are unable to buy homes in the country.

They’d been living in Switzerland for a number of years ahead of buying their new multi million pound home, but had only rented accommodation.

Proud Mary singer Tina officially relinquished her US citizenship in 2013.

Speaking back in 1997 about why she chose to leave the States, Tina told CNN’s Larry King: “I left America because my (biggest) success was in another country and my boyfriend was in another country. Europe has been very supportive of my music.”

The news of Tina’s passing was confirmed by her agent yesterday, who said the songstress had died “peacefully”.

“Tina Turner, the 'Queen of Rock'n Roll' has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland,” they shared.

"With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model."

Dozens of celebrities have since paid tribute to Tina, including Beyoncé who has dedicated the main page of her website to the late hitmaker.

The Single Ladies artist changed the main image on the site to one of her and Tina during their iconic Proud Mary performance at the 50th annual Grammy Awards in 2008, when Beyoncé was just 26 years old.

"My beloved Queen. I love you endlessly,” Beyoncé’s statement began.

"I'm so grateful for your inspiration, and all the ways you have paved the way," she continued. "You are strength and resilience. You are the epitome of power and passion.

"We are all so fortunate to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit that will forever remain. Thank you for all you have done."

The likes of Angela Bassett, Naomi Campbell and Alexandra Burke have also paid tribute to the What’s Love Got To Do With It? singer.
