The listing broker of Whitney Houston’s New Jersey home is betting that the recent drama surrounding the singer’s premature death may help to sell the 12,561-square-foot mansion, the New York Post reported.

An advertisement for the Mendham Township property by Robert Cross of CarProperty.com, which is asking $1.75 million, mentions the star’s death in Los Angeles last weekend.

“With the recent passing of Whitney Houston in Beverly Hills, Calif., the day before the 2012 Grammy Awards show, it is with a heavy heart that we remind you of this great mansion. Whitney contacted us directly a few years ago about selling her house and even though she had it listed with various agents in New Jersey, we have kept the word out for her to car collectors, enthusiasts and the entertainment world.”

The mansion, which was first listed in 2009, may have been the site of her battle with drugs, the listing notes.

“This house was also the scene of the activity that brought down this incredible musical diva over a 15-year cycle. The mansion was also used in the filming of a 2005 reality show in which she and her ex-husband appeared at the pinnacle of Whitney Houston’s fall from musical power and grace. With all of this incredible star studded history, if you owned this house you would always have these incredible stories to go with it. A great conversation piece for anyone.” [Post]
