Mariah Carey sells mansion for a loss

Mariah Carey’s expansive 1167sq m neo-colonial mansion has been sold, with the buyer acquiring the property at a lower price than what the pop star paid.

The New York-born singer purchased the Atlanta-area estate for $5.65 million in order to be closer to her band during the pandemic.

However, she has now sold the lavish residence for $4.3 million, incurring a loss, according to Architectural Digest.

When the property was listed for sale in September of last year, Carey had initially asked for $6.5 million.

Shana Bradley of Ansley Real Estate, who represented Carey in the sale, revealed that the new owner of the Buckhead home is Michael Dickey, the CEO of Modern Luxury Media.

Dickey’s company publishes prominent magazines such as Hamptons, Modern Luxury Manhattan, and Los Angeles Confidential, indicating that his penchant for luxurious living aligns with Carey’s well-known glamorous taste.

Dickey already owns property in the area and intends to relocate his family to this magnificent dwelling.

“The home sold to a local family that knows how special this property is,” Bradley stated in a press release.

“(They are) looking forward to enjoying all of its amenities for years to come. Both Ms. Carey and the buyer are very pleased with the outcome of this sale.”

Despite owning the property for less than a year, the songstress made her mark by adding her personal touch to the nine-bedroom house.

Images reveal that she converted a bedroom adjacent to the main suite into a stylish dressing room and salon, featuring pink walls, a pink glam station adorned with Hollywood vanity lights, and a professional styling chair.

Additionally, Carey introduced a pink-walled bar off the main suite, perfect for mixing cocktails in the evening or savouring coffee in the morning.

In her signature style, she replaced several ordinary light fixtures with dazzling chandeliers in various rooms, including the main suite’s bathroom (which also boasts pink walls), the breakfast bay in the kitchen, and the foyers.
