Mariah Carey flips Georgia estate back onto the market

Singer Mariah Carey appears to be packing up and leaving Georgia after just nine months and is putting her Colonial-style mansion back on the market in the process.

According to The Dirt, Carey is still hoping to make a profit on the sale, asking US$6.5 million, or $850,000 more than she paid for the property in December 2021.

Tucked away on a gated hilltop block spanning over 4 acres in the suburban city of Sandy Springs, just minutes from downtown Atlanta, the house was completely rebuilt in the early 1990s and designed by architect Stephen Fuller. 

The red brick and columned structure features nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms spread across more than 1160sq m of living space, the home boasts intricate crown moulding and millwork, coffered ceilings and arched doorways throughout.

A plush upstairs master retreat offers a fireplace with built-in shelves, a private terrace, morning bar, walk-in closet, a dressing room equipped with a makeup mirror and salon chair, and luxe bathroom complete with dual vanities and an inviting soaking tub.

A large daylight terrace level is fully equipped with a movie theatre, mirrored gym and fireside living room that opens to an outdoor entertaining/play area, where the garden-laced grounds also host a heated pool, an entertainment pavilion with built-in barbecue, tennis court and a three-car garage.
