As she prepares for the birth of her second child and marriage to Eric Johnson, former singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson is putting her old life behind her by selling the house she bought after splitting with first husband Nick Lachey.
Bought in 2005 and recently renovated the custom built house has recently been placed on the market for $7.995 million and boasts five bedrooms and a swimming pool in the heart of Beverly Hills. Amongst the famous neighbors Simpson is leaving behind as she moves to her new property are Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman. Simpson bought the Beverly Hills house in 2005 for $5.275 million and is now looking for more than $2 million in profit.
The move to the new house has been prompted by Simpson buying a new family home in the shape of the former home of Ozzy Osbourne, which cost around $11.5 million. 32 year old Simpson bought her new home in April this year prompting her to place the five bathroom older home on the real estate market; amongst the details released about the house are the fact it was built in 1991 and was once home to Ellen DeGeneress.
Here’s a detailed description of the house…if you’re looking to buy.
Built in 1991, the custom home is evocative of the stylish real estate found in the Hamptons and is located in one of the most private, guarded celebrity enclaves. The property is walled and gated, with a stone courtyard that leads to a koi pond.
Inside, high ceilings punctuate the formal living room and dining room. A family-friendly, restaurant-style gourmet kitchen leads to the breakfast room then out to the stone courtyard. The media/family room opens out to the serene, private and secure park-like grounds and swimming pool.
The home also has quite the Hollywood pedigree. Prior to Simpson and her family living here, Paul Hogan, Tom and Kathy Freston, Ellen DeGeneres, and Rick Yorn all called this gorgeous property home.
