Our roving eyes at Palace magazine spotted two pop music stars’ abodes for sale, it’s none other than Selena Gomez and Britney Spears!
With her 189 million Instagram followers, Selena Gomez’s life is definitely in the public eye. So, when her Calabasas, California home was up for sale, it caught the eye of fans and property hunters. The former Disney Channel star states that her home is for sale at USD 6.6 million. The sprawling home set on 3.1 acres of lush gardens and was formerly owned by Moroccan-American rapper French Montana which Gomez sold to him in 2016.
The 7,786-square-foot mansion decked up in modern furnishings with classical elements offers five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The gated property is situated in Mureau Estates community of Calabasas. Adding to the glitz factor are five fireplaces, chef’s kitchen to accommodate large parties, large pantry, plus a slew of high-tech creature comforts to pamper its future homeowners. There are also rooms for formal dining and entertaining, not forgetting a full bar to serve cocktails, fully-equipped gymnasium, and a movie theatre to indulge in blockbusters.
Then there’s more such as a stunning, lush backyard replete with pool, spa, cabana, Viking outdoor kitchen and pizza oven made from bricks. However, the rapper turned the former guest house into a USD 400K recording studio where a large elephant topiary guards and dominates it. The listing agent is Gabriel Palmrot of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills
Britney Spears may be famous for her hit Baby One More Time the world over but when it comes to an insider’s peek into her private life, not so much. The music pop star’s Beverly Hills home is set to change hands. The gated and guarded property was the home she bought in 2007 in The Summit after her divorce from Kevin Federline, where she could find privacy and safety. Britney sold it in 2012 at a USD 2 million loss, and it was previously on the market in 2018 at USD 9 million, it is now listed considerably lower at USD 6.8 million.
The Old-World vibe of the Italianate villa-style home conveys warmth and cosiness while the look of its upbeat modern interior is inviting and relevant for today’s needs. Built in 2001 and covering almost 7,500 square feet, the rooms are spacious and airy and open up to take advantage of the cool climate. The interior opens into a grand foyer where a large chandelier presides, offering glimpses of the second floor that overlooks the entryway. A few steps inside reveal the wrought-iron bannister staircase where one can continue his/her way up across the second-floor which opens up to a large “catwalk”; this allows the future homeowner to have commanding views of the formal living room with its impressive fireplace. Crisp, white, and bright, with clerestory windows bringing in more light, it is a perfect backdrop for art, special antiques, and statement-making potted trees. In addition, for a dose of culinary experience, there’s the formal dining room, chef’s kitchen which opens up to a large family room and garden-fringed pool deck. There is a cheerful breakfast nook with built-in seating that is surrounded by windows on three sides. The six bedrooms and seven baths include a master suite with its own private balcony and fireplace, sumptuous bath, and large panelled walk-in dressing room/closet. There is also an office, a media room, and multiple entertaining venues both inside and out.
The Summit has been the choice neighbourhood for elite entertainers who want a paparazzi-proof location where they can mingle with their peers and their children can play peacefully away from curious onlookers. This enclave has been home to Gwen Stefani, J-Lo, Ariana Grande and Britney. This Beverly Hills mansion is priced at USD 6.8 million; Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing’s Matt and Josh Altman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Beverly Hills hold the listing.
