Kelly Clarkson Reduces L.A. Mansion asking Price By $1 Million
2002 marked the year that Kelly Clarkson won American Idol, and ever since then, every playlist remains incomplete without a couple of her hit records like Stronger, Miss Independent, Since You Been Gone, etc.
After gaining fame and notoriety, Kelly went on to make the most of it, with an unmatched career in music, coaching budding musicians on The Voice, becoming an animated voiceover artist, hosting her own talk show, and even publishing various children’s books!
Spilling the Tea
A couple of months after the coronavirus pandemic broke out, Kelly and ex-husband Brandon Blackstock decided to list the Encino farmhouse they’d purchased two years prior for $10 million. Perhaps owing to the outbreak and country-wide financial tensions, the home still sits on the market untouched and unsold.
Therefore, after giving it a good 8 months, the Grammy winner has reconsidered the price tag, making it $1 million lighter, as reported by LA Times. From the looks of it, Kelly is quite eager to get this property off her hands asap, which she admits to having purchased while in the midst of divorce discussions.
Inside the Mansion
From the outside, the property has a unique textured appearance, owing to its most defining distressed wood exterior. Sitting atop half an acre, the mansion is spread across 9,829-square-feet and contains 8 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms divided across the main house and guesthouse.
Modern-rustic accents follow you into the mansion, with wood beams gracing the ceilings and diagonal wood-paneled walls in the dining and living areas. One of the unique elements is the sliding barn door that separates the rest of the home from the living room, boasting a colorful pattern of refurbished wood. Another element that would have you gravitating towards the home is its kitchen, complete with 3 islands: 2 in dark granite, 1 in finished wood, and exclusive appliances, including the La Cornue range.
In the master bedroom, white subway-tiled walls, white marble floors, exposed wood beams, diagonal wood panel accent walls, and fireplace elevate the look of the room, giving it a more homey and comfy vibe. The patterned tile vibe also echoes in the office/sitting area.
Other amenities throughout the mansion include a children’s playroom, a gym, a wine cellar, and a tiered home theater. Outback, the property features a full outdoor kitchen, barbecue area, a dining area, a fire pit, a swimming pool, and a spa.
Wrapping It Up
Having won primary physical custody of her and Blackstock’s children amid the divorce, the mansion is just another thing weighing heavy on the artist’s shoulders. Evidently, from the reduced asking price, she just can’t wait to get it off her hands.
