Madonna Wants To Let It Go in Beverly Hills
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, CA
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.
