Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, is selling her Houston mansion.

Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, is selling her Houston mansion.

Tina Knowles' 8,850-square-foot home in Houston is on the market for $3.5 million, the Houston Press reported. The official listing says Beyonce's mom's home sits on 2.6 acres with an island-style pool and ravine views.

An open floorplan and a large great room with high ceilings make the home ideal for entertaining. The kitchen features a chef's island and designer finishes, and its master suite has a fireplace, study, coffee bar and marble-clad mirrored dual baths. Knowles' guests can stay in style in the home's four luxurious bedroom suites and entertain themselves in the game and media rooms, gym and guest/pool house.

Moving trucks may be a more common sight in Houston neighborhoods, as home prices for the week ending September 14 fell 4.3 percent from June to August. The average listing price is $280,975, and the average sale price is $81,385, according to Trulia.

There are 17,660 resale and new homes in Houston listed on Trulia, as well as listings for 5,634 homes in pre-foreclosure, auction or in the bank-owned stages of foreclosure.
