Pop queen Britney Spears has just landed a swanky getaway from her stint in Las Vegas: an expansive estate perched on a hilltop in Thousand Oaks, California.
The songstress dropped $7.4 million on the massive 5-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom mansion, which is situated on a 20-acre piece of land filled with olive and magnolia trees, just outside L.A.
It should come as no surprise that the “Toxic” singer would have that kind of cash lying around to spend on her new digs, considering the fact that she signed on for another 2-year residency at Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort.
The home has been on and off the real estate market for a couple of years now, which started off at nearly $12 million back in early 2013. So it appears as if Ms. Spears has landed herself a deal.
With 13,264 square feet, there’s plenty of room for such opulent and decadent spaces in this gem. An enormous great room with an echo-inducing 35-foot high ceiling can be accessed via the marble-floored foyer, which features a colossal fireplace surrounded by built-in media cabinets. The oak-panelled library boasts built-in bookshelves, a fireplace, and gorgeous Parquet de Versailles flooring.
The kitchen is a gourmet chef’s dream, with a sprawling center island kitchen that has all the frills a private chef would covet. A separate dining area can be accessed directly from the kitchen, which comes complete with a towering bay window and fireplace.
The majestic master suite features a fireplace, two large walk-in closets, two bathrooms, and a private balcony overlooking the rolling hills of the property. The other four bedrooms stem off of the master suite.
There’s much to look at outside the walls of this palatial palace, including hand-carved fountains, a plethora of patios with fabulous views, meticulously manicured lawns, lush flower gardens, and even an orchard.
This Italian-esque estate is meant for entertaining – there’s a large media and game room on the upper level of the main house, as well as a 1,200-square-foot poolside pavilion that’s outfitted with a full kitchen, bathroom, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar that can hold 3,500 bottles of wine. And outside, Britney and her pals can enjoy the infinity pool and spa, a motor court, a lit-up tennis court with a viewing level, and a three-green golf course.
Spears is no stranger to dabbling in SoCal real estate – she’s held title on a number of other properties in Malibu, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood, and even rented a few estates all over L.A. Just three years ago the singer dished out nearly $6.8 for a humongous Spanish-style mansion inside Sherwood Country Club’s gated community – also in Thousand Oaks.
