Madonna’s Former BevHills Manse Back on Market

SELLER: Private Investor
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, Calif.
PRICE: $27,995,000
SIZE: 9 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Though Madonna failed to sell her Beverly Hills estate off-market for a much-tittered-about $28 million asking price in 2012— it was reduced to $22.5 million and put on the open market before she finally settled, in October 2013, for $19.5 million — the property is back up for sale on the open market with a familiar-ish asking price of $27.995 million.

As the eagle-eyed kids at Curbed already noted and dressed down, the current owner — a trust linked to private equity investor Nick Kaiser — has engaged the services of the middle-aged Material Girl’s old real estate broker — über-broker Kurt Rappaport at Westside Estate Agency — and current online listings once again do not include any interior photos of the French Country manse. Most curious of all, perhaps, is that current listings make use of the exact same description as when Madonna had it up for sale in 2013.

The Sunset Boulevard estate, sold to the thrice-married international pop icon by actress Sela Ward in 2003 for $12 million, sits at the tail end of a 500-foot, tree-lined driveway on about 1.25 landscaped acres. Per listing details, the “recently remodeled” house, which was also billed as “recently remodeled” when Madge sold it, contains 9 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, a couple of reception rooms, a double-height dining room as well as a junior dining room, an open kitchen with adjoining breakfast room and den, a professional-quality screening room, two offices plus a suite of offices for assistants, a gym, and a couple of staff rooms. The property additionally includes two guesthouses, a lighted tennis court and a “resort-size pool,” a luxury feature that’s starting to sound a bit excessive in this day and age of strict and mandatory water restrictions in California.
