Mariah Carey is ready to sell her mansion for 6.5million dollars
Mariah Carey, the queen of pop, paid $5.65 million less than a year ago for a lavish property in a suburb outside Atlanta, Georgia.
In order to get at her asking price of $6.5 million, she reportedly transposed the numbers she spent on the house, according to an article in The Wall Street Journal.
The home, which spans four acres in Sandy Springs, an Atlanta suburb, is supposedly being sold by Carey so that she may go back to New York.
However, with a recording booth among its many other conveniences, the house is ideal for a musician. The residence, which was created by renowned architect Stephen Fuller, is described as follows in the official marketing materials:
“Gorgeous new white kitchen with island seating for 14 people, completely refurbished tennis court, oversized pool with diving board, and plenty of space for laying out or entertaining on the patio. Large pool pavilion features outdoor kitchen, and half bathroom. Extensive lawns with tennis court, pond, fountain, children’s play area and swing set, as well as flat green space for exercise or weekend enjoyment. Owner Suite with attached office or sitting room, en suite bathroom, and double doors opening to private patio and flat rear lawn. His and her vanities, separate tub and shower, as well as walk in closet with built-ins. Formal Dining room seats 12+ with catering service area. Basement includes two additional guest suites, home theater with seating for 10 viewers, oversized gym, and bonus room. Upstairs nanny suite with breakfast kitchen, and completely open and finished 3rd floor space with half bathroom, perfect for teen area, or private owner retreat.”
The listing also touts the home’s “recent comprehensive renovation,” though the house itself reportedly dates back to the 1990s. That renovation included that aforementioned recording booth, which listing agent Shanna Bradley says was installed on Carey’s behalf during her brief time as owner of the home.
Carey’s hopefully soon-to-be-former Atlanta digs spread across 12,600 square feet, with nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The WSJ story also mentions a recent burglary at the home, in July of this year, but Bradley says this didn’t contribute to Carey’s decision to list the home for sale.
