SELLER: Britney Spears LOCATION: Thousand Oaks, CA PRICE: $8.995 million SIZE: 8,456 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms Britney Spears has put one of her Thousand Oaks, California dream home on the market. Britney Spears hoisted her former mansion in the affluent community of Thousand Oaks, CA, up for sale at $8.995 million. Miz Spears, despite a chaotic and very public meltdown in 2007, is still one of the world’s most successful pop stars, who has sold more than 100 albums worldwide and recently signed a lucrative, two-year extension to her headliner residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. She purchased the property in November 2012 for $6,744,500. The single-story, Spanish style estate clocks in at a whopping 8,456 square feet, sprawled across two plots for a total of over 61,000 square feet of land. …And wait until you see her backyard–that’s our favorite part.
An aerial view of the 8,456 square-foot home. The property features three separate wings—master, children, and guest. The lavish mansion features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two offices, a cinema room, plus an impressive pool and outdoor entertaining deck with gorgeous views of the Santa Monica mountains. If this is the property Spears is letting go of, we can’t even imagine how amazing her new home must be. Click through for more pictures of this stunning real estate gem.
The first impression as you walk up to the home does not disappoint. The design is a contemporary-minded single-story Spanish hacienda-style mansion. It was built in 2010 on two mostly flat parcels that span just over 1.4 acres inside the guarded gates of the prestigious Sherwood Country Club. The home rests right next door to a huge compound professional tennis icon, Pete Sampras custom built and subsequently sold in October 2013 for $13.56 million.
Another adorable entrance
A quaint foliage-covered arbor and gate only adds to the idyllic scene.
The grand, yet minimalist, entryway. Remember, this leads to 8,456 square feet with a total of five bedrooms and seven bathrooms divided for optimal privacy between master, children and guest wings. (Fun fact: Britney Spears has moved in and out of 10 homes since hitting it big in 1999!)
An open, light-filled living room. Spears’ living room features classic arches and exposed wood beams. A groin-vaulted and French door-lined gallery links a ballroom-sized foyer with polished limestone floors and a double-height ceiling to the formal living room that features ashy brown oak floors, exposed beam ceiling, Art Deco-inspired black marble fireplace, and a sleekly curved wet bar in front of a glass-fronted walk-in wine cellar.
The adjoining family room, with fireplace and dining area, flows directly into the massive kitchen…
This kitchen is complete with every culinary bell and whistle that money can buy and incorporates two work islands, impressively thick slab marble countertops on white cabinetry, and an over-sized pantry. The amazing kitchen is a home chef’s fantasy with its top-line appliances, white cabinetry and sleek marble countertops. Spears’ kitchen includes white cabinets to make the room feel even brighter, and a massive marble-topped island.
Lounging on the couch and watching TV has never been so luxe. This games/media room just off the family room has tiered seating.
And then there’s also a fresh, white workspace in case you’re in the mood for something lighter. Spears has two office spaces, and this one features a clean, streamlined look with more white cabinetry and natural lighting. Fully carpeted with white built-ins.
Be her guest–One of five bedrooms. The pop princess’ guest room features a statement wall with a floral design, and two beds with architectural headboards.
Because obviously this is the master—a luxurious, cavernous room that somehow still manages to feel cozy. Spears’ master bedroom includes a huge bed, a wall-mounted TV, a fireplace and lots of ivory. The exposed wood beams evident in other rooms is also a feature of this sanctuary. The celebrity-sized master suite encompasses an entrance vestibule, bedroom with limestone-faced fireplace, French doors to a private courtyard.
The master closet leaves little to be desired. The space seems to span larger than some people’s homes.
Deserving the title of glam room more so than bathroom, you’ll never want to leave the master bath. These two bathrooms appear to share a steam-equipped shower space that, to be honest, looks significantly larger than this property gossip’s entire bathroom.
A peek at the back deck and outdoor entertaining area. The property’s elevated perch provides 180-degree views of the Santa Monica Mountains, and the landscaped grounds offer a roomy motor court and garaging for at least five cars, raised bed garden for herbs and vegetables, broad expanses of expensively watered lawns, gigantic swimming pool with party-sized spa, and sunken patio with fire pit ringed by built-in banquette seating.
The house opens on its backside to a massive, meandering loggia that incorporates a lounge area with fireplace, dining terrace, and a built-in grilling station set into a circular bar. The home’s massive patio features a fully functional dining space. It’s complete with an outdoor bar counter and grill, plus a dining table for more “formal” get-togethers.
