A six-bedroom, seven-bathroom Beverly Hills mansion that once belonged to Britney Spears is up for sale.

The price? $8.95 million or over R128 million. It’s a 7,796 square-foot Mediterranean villa-style mansion that sits at the end of a cul de sac in an upscale gated community, where future owners will have direct access to canyon views as well as public and private hiking trails.

It was built in 2001 and is definitely part of the pop star aesthetic.

A dazzling crystal chandelier dangles from the high-ceilinged entryway, one of many in the home that connect to the living room. There's also a family room and a dining room that grant access to the backyard via multiple glass doors. The spacious, elegant kitchen is open, airy and accentuated by a generously sized breakfast nook.

The sprawling home also boasts a second-floor master suite that's aptly fit for music royalty. The snazzy sleeping quarters are outfitted with his/her baths, a fireplace and a loggia (a gallery or room with one or more open sides).

Additional amenities that fit nicely into the home's assortment of design-related highlights include a media room, a lush, exquisitely landscaped backyard complete with saltwater pool, spa, kids playhouse, a fire pit, a garden dining table for outdoor eating and entertaining, and separate quarters for staff and guests.

Britney reportedly moved into the home in 2007 and moved out in 2012 making a loss.

But here’s what she could afford in SA if she were to sell the mansion now and buy here instead. 


Britney could have bought this lavish eight-bedroom, eight bathroom home in Bishop’s Court, Cape Town for R100 million, so she’d have a cool R27 million change.
