Madonna’s Mansion For Sale. Price: $18 Million
Got your checkbooks ready? Good, because you’re going to need them. Word has just hit the streets that the Queen of Pop has put her Hollywood mansion up for sale. That’s right, potentially one of the only chances we’ll ever have of living in Madonna’s house has just cropped up. For those of you who aren’t aware who Madonna is you’re going to need to crawl out from under that rock you’ve been living under and listen up.
Not only has Madonna more or less become universally known but she’s managed to sell 300 million records worldwide accruing the Guinness World Record of the world’s top-selling female recording artist along the way. Past that, in her short 53 years on earth, Madonna has launched several successful business ventures, appeared in several different motion pictures and has been deemed a philanthropist to boot. In other words, this diva ain’t nobody to mess with.
The Hollywood mansion she recently put up for sale isn’t a joke either amassing a noteworthy 6,458 square feet, 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. Add to that exposed beams, elegant dark hardwood floors and a master bathroom fit for a king (or queen, in this case) and it’s easy to see why Madonna felt right to call it home.
As if its architectural stats weren’t enough to make you drool, the mansion, which was built in 1926, was featured in a 1999 issue of the prestigious Architectural Digest where it was highlighted in all of its beauty. Not only that, but both Betty Grable and Diane Keaton (who also appeared in the above mentioned Architectural Digest issue) once called the mansion home.
Of course, now that you’ve heard just how amazing this mansion is, you’re probably wondering how much it costs. Well, unfortunately, unless you’re a hedge fund manager or just recently won Mega Millions it may be a bit over budget. According to reports, Madonna’s 6,458 square foot mansion has been put up for sale with an asking price of $18.4 million. Any takers?
