After less than six months of ownership, popstar Britney Spears is quietly shopping around her massive Calabasas mansion, asking US$12 million for the luxury home.
According to The Dirt, the singer moved out as quickly as she moved in after finding the sprawling seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home, “too exposed for her”.
Spears picked up the luxury property from car dealership mogul Bill Slevin for US$11.8 million in 2022, just after her wedding to fitness trainer Sam Asghari and now wants to quickly move it on for a modest US$200,000 profit.
The single-storey mansion was built in 2008 and is located in the double-gated Estates at the Oaks neighbourhood and boasts 1021sq m of living space on a huge 1.6-acre lot.
Inside, guests are greeted by custom steel entry doors that open into a 10-metre Cantera stone foyer along with an array of lavish interiors that include imported onyx, a combination of hardwood and stone floors, high vaulted ceilings, arched hallways, chandeliers, Ann Sacks mosaic tile designs and unique hand-carved fireplaces.
Some of the highlights of the property include a wine cellar, a 10-seat movie theatre, a fireside living room and formal dining room, a wood-panelled study, a wet bar-equipped lounge and a “gift-wrapping room”.
The mansion’s gourmet kitchen comes with a centre island and breakfast nook and is fitted out with top-of-the-range stainless steel appliances and connects to the oversized family room as well as a nearly 200sq m alfresco dining area with fireplace and built-in barbeque.
Meanwhile, the master retreat boasts its own fireplace, seating area, dual walk-in closet, marble bath and soaking tub along with a private terrace.
Outside the grounds look more like a resort with a 16-metre swimming pool, a spa with tiered waterfalls and a waterslide, as well as a detached one-bedroom guesthouse and five-car garage.
The property is being shopped around off-market and there is reportedly already a potential buyer lined up for the luxury estate according to TMZ.
Spears currently still owns a 21-acre Thousand Oaks mansion she purchased back in 2015 for US$7.4 million.
