UPDATE: Natalie Imbruglia

Way back in the third week of April Your Mama discussed the Hollywood Hills home of singer Natalie Imbruglia which at the time was on the market for $4,500,000. We're not even sure that native Australian Miz Imbruglia, who reportedly owns several homes all over the world, even lived in the house. Whatever the case, as Mister Big Time reported earlier today, Miz Imbruglia finally sold the 5,434 square foot house on St. Ives Drive for $3,725,000.

Although Your Mama does not have much additional report on the details of the sale, we did hear from a well placed source yesterday who whispered to Your Mama that the house was purchased by a Mexican heiress who dabbles in the film bizness. Apparently the heiress does not swim because unfortunately there is no swimming pool and if Your Mama has said it once we've said it a hundred times, we would not dream of paying more than three million clams for a house without a damn swimming pool.

I went to the open house and loved the house,However,I have to agree with mama I wouldn't pay that kind of money for a house without a pool. Also, there are basically no views.

Staging Lady with Toyota:
Kudos for the creative use of stager kit, incl. one pair of mineature all-purpose end tables, potted orchid, and delux area rug. Your obstruction of wall space is a 10.
However, at our last quarterly Stagers to the Stars meeting, just after our song and pledge, my speech addressed the importance of carelessly tossing the accent throw, which you instead folded and placed on the sofa without a trace of draping. Where are the faux trees in baskets, wall sconces and armour that you won at our last raffle? This is not a pure Tuscan/Cato theme. AND, the pillows were not karate chopped. On the bright side, your lapel pin with three garnets for three months since certification will still be awarded at our gala holiday potluck, in recognition of the spunky yellow pillar candle spot-color, which punched up the entire room.

Ms. F, are you moonlighting as CEO of Stagers to the Stars? Strong resemblance. It's a good cover.

Staging Lady with a Toyota, I like your spunk. A girl trawls flea market, after flea market, digging through boatloads of shit to come up with maybe one decent macrame plant hanger. Not to mention the rented storage pods crammed to the roof which always have the throw rug you wanted buried in the back. And then you have to listen to all the flak here. Tough job. You couldn't pay me. Well buck up, dear. Ask Mama for her chipotle infused sweet potato recipe to take to the potluck and you'll be a huge hit.

Hey staging lady with a toyota,this one's on ME!

Dear staging lady with the toyota - my boyfriend, big gay designer, says you're evil - but way to go on winning your pin!

staging lady with a toyota, you should have waited until next year to buy the mineature all-purpose end tables, potted orchid, and deluxe area rug. CNN is reporting that Crate & Barrel is losing so much money that you will soon be able to find them at an 80% discount at Big Lots.

Lil' gay boy tell your boyfriend to be nice,staging lady with a toyota is just doing a job for tasteless homeowners who don't want to spend any money.We who consider ourselves decorators by trade should have some sympathy,can you imagine the shit she has to put up with?

I went to a house warming party there the other day and the house is so fabulous, beautifully done, you dont really need a pool. I guess you could add one but if thats the price it sold for then it seems like a good deal, it has like 2 guest houses and like 5 bedrooms, it just seemd like it went on and on.....

property pimp said...

it was a bad remodel by a realtor, sits right on the street,but your next door neighbor is the "grand ms. ross" herself, so you canwatch her attempting to navigate her cars in and out of the driveway, with those brats (her kids)in multiple range rovers... no pool, no view. just lots of sq ftg. a deal? I don't think so.

Mr. property know it all said...

Miz Imbruglia spent a fortune to undo the bad remodel by the realtor and she did an amazing job, the singer has great taste. Once the heiress adds a pool it will add several million clams to the value.

And, by the way, Ms. Ross kids are sweet, educated, humble kids!
