Wanna live in a big mansion? A six-bedroom, seven-bathroom Beverly Hills mansion that once belonged to Britney Spears is up for sale. With a reduced asking price of $8.95 million, the 7,796 square-foot Mediterranean villa-style mansion sits at the end of a cul de sac in an upscale gated community, where future owners will have direct access to canyon views as well as public and private hiking trails.
Built in 2001, the home’s eye-catching design elements and amenities are on par with the pop star aesthetic. Its glitz and extravagance are evident upon approaching the home from its driveway, which leads to a motor court. Once inside, a dazzling crystal chandelier dangles from the high-ceilinged entryway, one of many in the home that connect to the living room. There’s also a family room securely tucked away in the interior, and a dining room that grant access to the backyard via multiple sets of glass doors. The spacious, elegant kitchen is open, airy and accentuated by a generously sized breakfast nook.
The sprawling home also boasts a second-floor master suite that’s aptly fit for music royalty. The snazzy sleeping quarters are outfitted with his/her baths, a fireplace and a loggia. Additional amenities that fit nicely into the home’s assortment of design-related high notes include a media room, a lush, exquisitely landscaped backyard complete with saltwater pool and spa and kids playhouse, a fire pit, a garden dining table for outdoor eating and entertaining, and separate quarters for maids and guests.
According to the L.A. Times, Spears moved into the Beverly Hills home in 2007 and ultimately took a sizable loss on the property when she sold it in 2012 for $2.126 million, which is nearly $5 million less than what she originally paid for it.
