The Osbournes Give it One More Try

SELLERS: Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne
LOCATION: Doheny Road, Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $11,995,000
SIZE: 11,571 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: We hear from a little birdie that the Gothic inclined residence of America's first family of rock and roll is quietly back on the market for $11,995,000, which is the same price it was for sale last year. Don't quote us on that price because there's not listing we could find to confirm that price...but it is the price given to us by someone in the know.

The Beverly Hills house was featured on the Osbourne's reality television show from 2002-2005, so most of the world has already seen all the nooks and crannies of this house. And every real estate blog in the world discussed this property back when it first came on the market. So we're going to say very little.

It appears the Osbournes purchased this house back in 1999 for just $3,900,000. Clearly they've put a few million into customizing and decorating the place with crucifixes, crying angels, depressing Biblical scenes and other religious paraphernalia. Even still, they're likely to make millions on the sale of this house. Which should be no surprise to anyone as Sharon has been masterful and managing Ozzy's career into a machine that mints money.

The couple is also trying to unload one of their ocean front properties in Malee-boo, for $10,995,000. Since it's Sunday and Your Mama needs some time to reflect and weed the garden, we're just going to flip you over to Big Time Listings' coverage of this property.

The one snarky comment we will make about the house on Doheny Road, is that it is our opinion that twenty something Kelly is just a little too old to be living up in a pink bedroom decorated with Hello Kitty dolls. Don't get Your Mama wrong, we love Hello Kitty just as much as the Japanese. And we also love Miss Kelly and her wild and crazy outfits as well as each of her hair dos and hair don'ts. But hunnies, she's a woman now, and it's our humble and meaningless opinion that it's time for her to let go of the bedroom that looks like it was decorated for a 12 year old girl.

This place was built from the ground up so the land may have only cost $3.9 million but they obviously spent several millions to build this place ... The kitchen alone was over a million dollars ... It's on my street & from the outside it's a beautiful property but obviously the inside is not to everyones taste ...

Mama, I don't know about this house. I can't get the image of those dogs doing their "business" all over that house. How long do smells last anyway?

It's a pretty nice spread for the price however, some of the religious decor would not appeal to most buyers and I fear those pet odors the "west coastian" mentioned. But, I would buy it.

Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne did not build that house from the ground up. It has been there for many years. They did however do a complete renovation to make it what it is today. I have lived in the neighborhood since childhood.

I believe that Pat Boone owned the mansion before Ozzy.

I'm glad I'm not the only one turned off by the decor. This mansion could be gorgeous, but the way it is now, it looks like dollar store swag when compared to some of the beautiful luxury real estate in NYC. It'll be interesting to see who picks this pad up next...
