It is unclear if the Carters spend much time at the house, but it is the mailing address for Bey’s management company Parkwood Entertainment.

The building was first built as a Presbyterian church in 1925 before switching to a ballet school. It is now a three story main house with 26 foot ceilings and three separate apartments.
