She has become the latest member of the exclusive clique who live behind the guarded gates of Hidden Hills, north of Los Angeles. The singer splashed out $4.95 million for a six-bedroom home on one and a quarter acres in the luxury enclave.
The 6,800-square-foot mansion is described as an East Coast traditional built in the 1950s that has recently been completely refurbished. It features arched windows, French oak floorboards and an extensive outdoor entertaining area. The formal living room boasts a vaulted ceiling and French doors leading out onto a terrace.
There’s a formal dining room located just off the front door and a family room with a wet bar and a fireplace.
The gourmet kitchen has a vaulted skylight over a large center island with marble countertops and high-end appliances. There’s also a screening room with eight black leather reclining seats and a 135-inch screen. The bedrooms, all ensuite, include two master suites, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. One of the impressive bathrooms has a shower with room enough for two.
The upstairs master offers an expansive area that includes a fireplace, walk-in closet, access to a balcony and a large bathroom with a marble-lined steam shower and glam station.
The landscaped grounds have a lagoon-style swimming pool and spa lined by boulders. A pavilion houses an outdoor kitchen next to a dining patio. The property offers opportunities for expansion with room to build a guest house or horse facilities or even to plant a vineyard on its slopes.
The property purchase comes amid somewhat of a lifestyle overhaul for the Slide Away songstress who has recently given up smoking marijuana, and gone sober.
