Brown Family Sold Off Its ‘Browntown’ Home
Brown’s family relocated to North Star Ranch in the Washington state wilderness in early 2019. According to a news tabloid, the family put their 29-acre “Browntown” home on the market in November 2019 for a whopping $795,000. Billy and Ami’s children – Matt, Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird, and Rain – were born and raised in Alaska. However, the family did move south to the ranch after Ami was diagnosed with cancer in 2017. The doctors advised her not to live off the grid. Since then, Ami has updated her fans that her cancer is in remission.
