Kid Rock, the Michigan-born rapper and musician who’s often associated himself with the Motor City, might be leaving Detroit. He recently listed his 1930 home in the Joseph Berry Subdivision through Skyline Realty Group for $2.2 million. Rock bought the 6,000-square-foot American colonial in 2012 for $300,000.

The house sits on the East Riverfront and has direct access to the Detroit River. It comes with a boathouse that has jet ski lifts and two outdoor TVs. Inside, there’s six bedrooms, a recreation room with a poker table and wet bar, and a very red dining room. It’s gotten some renovations in the recent past, including a new kitchen and, we assume, the metal ceiling tiles on the second floor.

He decorated the home with accoutrements fitting for his outspoken and sometimes controversial political views. You’ll find numerous American flags (including a Betsy Ross Flag), a framed Declaration of Independence, and images and statues depicting Jesus Christ and George Washington. Of course there’s plenty of Detroit-themed trappings as well, including a poster with names of Detroit bus lines and an image of Bob Seger.

We’re not sure, but maybe the buyer would also get the monogramed pillows with RJR, the initials for Rock’s given name, Robert James Ritchie.

According to The Detroit News, Rock also owns homes in Nashville, Alabama, and northern Oakland County.
