UPDATE: Christina Aguilera


BUYER: Christina Aguilera
SELLER: Tom Gores
LOCATION: Sherman Oaks/Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $10,000,000
SIZE: 11,107 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Looks like Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton and Robbie Williams are getting a new superstar neighbor. The latest celebrity real estate report from the celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ is that Christina Aguilera has dropped $10 million for a gated, Mediterranean mansion of 11,107 square feet set on a .84 landscaped acre in the guard-gated Mulholland Estates community that's nestled into the Santa Monica Mountains between Sherman Oaks and Beverly Hills (CA).

The seller was private equity multi-billionaire Tom Gores who owns the Detroit Pistons and who bought the property in June 1999 for $4,595,000. Last year Mister Gores leased the house to the newly and acrimoniously divorced businesswoman and (former) Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Adrienne Maloof for—so the scuttlebutt goes—around $20,000 per month.

In addition to substantial formal living and dining rooms and a manly wood panelled library, listing details show Miz Aguilera's new crib has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, at least five fireplaces and two bars plus a walk-in wine cellar. A den/family room has a double height ceiling and the colossal eat-in center island kitchen with walk-in pantry and top grade appliances including a massive La Cornue range that Your Mama can assure the children cost more than the car Miz Aguilera's maid drives.* Listing information also indicates there's a screening room and an enclosed loggia with wood panelled ceiling, completely muraled walls and several over-sized arched glass doors that link the to lush backyard entertainment areas.

Each of the five guest/family bedrooms has a private en suite facility and the celebrity-sized second floor master suite comprises a behemoth bedroom with carved stone fireplace and direct access to a private terrace with outdoor fireplace, a separate private office that Your Mama imagines will soon become Miz Aguilera's dressing room, two walk-in closets and a massive two-room marble-floored bathroom with twin vanities and free standing soaking tub.

The lush grounds have mature landscaping, flagstone terraces, a fountain or two, a saltwater swimming pool and spa with a nearby bathhouse for convenient mid-swim evacuations, a stone gazebo and a built-in barbecue station. Naturally the entire property is secured with a state-of-the-art security system and equipped with high-tech audio/visual systems.

As it turns out this isn't the first time Miz Aguilera has owned a home in the Mulholland Estates enclave. In late 2000 when the former Mickey Mouse Club performer was in her early 20s she shelled out $2,750,000 to acquire a 7,492 square foot mock-Med mac-mansion. She quickly caught a classic case of The Celebrity Real Estate Fickle and flipped the property at a loss just over a year later to its current owner for $2,575,000.

For the last five or six years Miz Aguilera has owned a walled and gated mansion in Beverly Hills that she bought in August 2007 for $11,500,000 from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. More than two years ago, not long after it was revealed she and her now ex-husband music exec Jordan Bratman were to be divorced, Miz Aguilera's exuberantly festooned domicile was dropped on the open market with an asking price of $13,500,000. Current online listings show the 11,571 square foot mock-Med mansion is currently in escrow and Your Mama was told by a little birdie who often knows such things that word on the Platinum Triangle Real Estate Street is that the buyer is foreign.

*Your Mama has no idea if Miz Aguilera employs a maid and, if she does, what sort of car the maid drives.

Adrienne Maloof makes triumphant return to Beverly Park?
OH SNAP

lil' gay boy said...

Xtina, better break out the sage before moving in, gurl...

This is no Maurice Fatio -- slap on some off-beige stucco, a tiled roof, some chunky corbels, and an arch here & there and call it Mediterranean?

Not so much; although the muraled loggia is not completely beyond redemption.

I can't help but feel that this house is very dark inside. Maybe Xtina should put in smaller trees?

I'm waiting for the news of Adrienne Maloof. If she is indeed returning to Beverly Park, Yo Ma's favourite LA neighbourhood, then a post is guaranteed.

In other sort of related news, now that Jessica Simpson is either in contract or has closed on the Osbourne house in Hidden Hills, has she listed her house in BHPO? Or maybe her mother will move into it. Think I recall reading that she's presently renting in Toluca Lake.

Adrienne that cow is NOW moving back to Beverly Park. Da bitch is under contract to purchase 8 Beverly Ridge Terrace. You heard it ho's.....

The grounds are nice...until Sheen, Hilton or the other person forgets their house number and jump the back wall or collides with the home in their vehicle. Too much crazy in that hood.

Superstar?!?! Crusty's last three albums have BOMBED. Ho is Over!!!

If the Beverly Ridge statement is true, then this is right up Yo Ma's alley, especially since the people who sold it sold at a loss.

Better stop with the Yo Ma thing hunny. Not cute.

No one is going for cute nor offensive.

Adrienne is an ugly ox!! This house will look like a tarted up hooker from the Beaver Patch by the time Xtina is done with it. Whether her career is mostly over or not, bitch still has mega bank and the name still brings a lot of attention, like it or not children.

Saw at-home interview with her several months back. She's huge on red. Redecorating should be interesting.

As of late January, 2013 Tom Gore was reported as trying to unload it for $10,750 -- Sweet deal for her as Mama sussed out she got it for $10!

Beverly Ridge Terrace, where someone is saying Maloof is buying number 8, is not within Beverly Park. It's a separate gated development off of Coldwater Canyon. I believe that Johnny Carson's widow, Alex, bought the middle of the three houses set very close to one another at the end of that street after she sold Point Dume.

I think they typed noW instead of noT.
Either way is there any proof? 8 Bev Ridge doesn't seem gaudy enough for a Maloof.

Ah. That makes more sense (3:20). Yeah, not her style now, but I'm sure that can be fixed pretty easily.

Jesus Christ, it seems like Aguilera is always buying or selling. What the hell is wrong with her, find a nice home and stay your ass put.

Her house, if she bought it, and Your Mama isn't saying, is close to that multi-winged behemoth Tyler Perry started building and next to Mohamed Hadid's next big development. If you look at it closely, you'll see that Casey Kasem's, Martin Lawrence's and Tyler Perry's residence share a lot in common.

Anonymous said...

Not so much in common. Tyler Perrys house looks a lot more like those two monsters off Benedict Canyon than Kasems house. There is a supersized version of Kasems house on Baroda, but the shape is a little different than Tyler Perrys or Martin Lawrences old house.

Anonymous said...

Ooo, what are those two monsters?

Anonymous said...

Hmmmm, 201 Baroda Drive only tinily reminds me of Kasem's.

I'm laughing: break out the sage!
