Madonna Wants To Let It Go in Beverly Hills

SELLER: Madonna
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $22,500,000
SIZE: 17,000 square feet, 9 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Last March (2012) Your Mama tattled to the children that New York City-based middle aged pop superstar Madonna was quietly shopping her Beverly Hills, CA estate off-market with a $28,000,000 price tag. Well, hold on to your britches bitches because, thanks to Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills, we've learned that Madge's manse popped up on the open market today with a substantially lower asking price of $22,500,000.

Listing information shows the estate, accessed by a 500 foot long gated driveway, includes a recently renovated and meticulously maintained French Country-style main house with 9 bedrooms, two living rooms, a double height formal dining room plus "junior dining room", a full-sized screening room and an open concept kitchen/breakfast/den area. There are also two offices plus offices for assistants, a home gym, an art studio, additional staff rooms and two guest houses. All told the estate has about 17,000 square feet of interior space according to current listing information.

There are no photos of the interior included with online listing details but a little birdie we know who's been up in the house told us last year the day-core is "comfy" and "surprisingly normal."

The 1.14 acre grounds, gated and set well off Sunset Boulevard with a state of the art security system, includes a north/south aligned lighted tennis court, a resort style swimming pool with adjacent cabana, intimate gardens and ample parking for guests and staff.

Madge bought the house in June 2003 from actress Sela Ward for around $12,000,000.

lol , Petra Ecclestone must be majorly pissed. Tmz's article about her renovation disappeared and domvslondon site has no content.

Perhaps Madonna could give one of the guest houses to her brother. He might be grateful.

From the Daily Mail UK of February 8, last year:

And while the singer was supported by her toyboy boyfriend on stage as she headlined at the Super Bowl halftime show, her estranged homeless brother was in the car park outside.
Anthony Ciccone, 55, made his way down to the stadium in Indianapolis with a group of people from Michigan, where he normally lives in a homeless shelter.

Before leaving pointed remarks clearly intended as a criticism of Madonna , some people need to do some research! Madonna has spent thousands on rehab for this man over the past 20 years. His father owns a vineyard and gave him a job. In the end he had to sack him! Anthony has no intention of helping himself. He is an unfortunate alcoholic and a taker. He surfaces whenever the media want some fodder and good old Anthony is always there with his latest hard luck story. It breaks Madonna's heart to know he is homeless. He is her eldest sibling and she loves him dearly but she also knows if she put him in an apartment he will sell everything for alcohol! We must all take responsibility for our actions and that could not be more true in Anthony's case. He has 7 siblings and 2 parents living. Every single one of them has given him help one way or another, even Martin who was in a similar situation until Madonna got him sorted. Please refrain from negative comments when you know nothing! One should not judge and certainly when you do not have the facts.On a lighter note this is a fantastic property and a snip at that price if you can afford it!!

Well I have no idea what their relationship is or has been. I don't think I blamed her for anything. I merely juxtaposed her situation to his. A striking contrast. Could hardly be greater. Immense success vs immense failure.

What is Madge (Esther) thinking of?
O.K. let us cut to the chase-right down the street due west on Delfern(In a town called Bel Air)we got Ms Stevens pushing 2 acres with a Paul Williams (signature circular staircase thank you very much)fully loaded (pool, pool house,guest house,tennis court,private gate)coming in at 17.9 and just right around the corner on Crescent the former Cohen estate (ditto in features-larger main house)sitting at 24 million with an offer of 19 (subject to court approval).

Madges house-

On Sunset(yes flag shape lot,next to a classic landmark Kroonish House Richard Neuatra)but it is on Sunset.No real yards very house heavy and tight fit.

My opinion-she wants to make 10 m on the deal because that is what she thinks Sela Ward and husband made off of her.Wrong Sela's husband but it for 3m and sunk
about 7 million into it (could not do a tear down thanks to Bev Hills council)10 years later not even open market (Sela said Madonna was a shrewd business woman)she gets it.You really want it gone 14.5M
with some furnishings (not the real good stuff and run).Fair deal-flat acre in golden triangle 7.5-8M land costs,building costs,history-ta da).That is how they arrived at 85m
(I think still high-I pegged 72 but I did not know all of the furnishing details etc) for Spelling Manor (4.6 acres flat 56500 ft main house,features,etc).

The address is 9425 Sunset Blvd

Phil Collins' ex-wife, Jill Collins, who, BTW, is the current Beverly Hills Women's Club president, owns the house next door, right in the corner with North Hillcrest. Famous neighbours.

Madge should provide her brother a basic, no frills apartment with nothing else in it. Anthony can either straighten up, get a job and provide himself with the necessities (furniture, food, utilities).

Feel so bad for her boy toys. That's one long-ass driveway, it must be hell for them having to haul her trashcans up and down that thang every week. And we all know that Madonna always has lots of crap.

"surprisingly normal decor"
that's a loaded comment if I ever heard one...
good for madge...but I think she's being a bit greedy with that price.
and why should she provide ONE CENT for this guy....I am sure in the past she has...let him step up!

Sounds like Madonna commented back. Regardless she has tried but addiction is a mental disease n alcohol should be used lightly. I fight with myself at times not to but when im feeling down its all i know. All people can do is pray for him n hope he fights that demon. There r worst demons out there to fight off. I hope u sell ur house congrats the tour was a success n i had a blast. Love u Madonna...
