The Bashara home in Grosse Pointe Park is where investigators believe Jane Bashara was killed.

It's where her husband Bob Bashara later confessed his innocence and where he talked with Dateline NBC about his wife's murder. The home now is up for sale.

Photos from take you inside the 2,800 square-foot house on Middlesex Road. It features four bedrooms, four baths and an incredibly sad story of a family's tragedy. It's a story that must be revealed to any potential buyers.

Local 4 is told the home is in a trust and any money from the sale would likely go to the Bashara children.

Selling a home that made headlines for a murder mystery is difficult but not impossible. For instance, the Washington Township home where Stephen Grant murdered his wife Tara was sold after he was convicted. A family bought that home well under its asking price.

The Bashara home is available for showings but all potential buyers must be screened and prequalified.

Handyman who pleaded guilty in trouble behind bars

Meanwhile, handyman Joe Gentz, who investigators say was pressured by Bob Bashara to kill Jane, recently was moved to the Macomb Correctional Facility.

Gentz received a violation on March 12 while he was at the Chippewa Correctional Center. He was written up for an altercation with a prison guard. Another incident like that and Gentz could lose the privilege of having visitors.
