Less than a year ago, Queen of Pop Mariah Carey bought a lavish mansion in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia for $5.65 million. Now, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that she’s now put the house up for sale, essentially transposing the numbers she spent on the property to hit her $6.5 million asking price.
Spread over approximately four acres in the Atlanta suburb of Sandy Springs, the property was reportedly given up by Carey so she could return to New York. Nevertheless, the house is perfect for a musician, equipped with a recording booth among its many other amenities. Designed by famed architect Stephen Fuller, here’s how the house is described in official marketing materials:
“Gorgeous new white kitchen with island for 14 people, completely renovated tennis court, oversized swimming pool with diving board and plenty of room to lounge or entertain on the patio. The large pool pavilion includes an outdoor kitchen and a half -bathroom Extensive lawns with tennis court, pond, fountain, children’s play area and swing, as well as a flat green area for exercising or enjoying the weekend Owner’s suite with office or Adjoining living room, ensuite bath and double doors opening to private patio and flat back lawn His and hers vanities, separate tub and shower, plus walk-in closet with built-ins Formal dining area seats 12 and more with catering service space.The basement includes two additional guest suites, a home theater with seating for 10 spectators, an oversized gym, and more. bonus room. Upstairs nanny suite with breakfast kitchen and completely open and finished 3rd floor space with a half bath, perfect for a teen space or a private owner’s retreat.
The listing also touts the home’s “recent comprehensive renovation,” though the house itself apparently dates back to the 1990s. That renovation included that aforementioned check-in booth, which listing agent Shanna Bradley said was installed on behalf of Carey during his brief time as owner of the house.
Carey’s hopefully soon ex-Atlanta dig spans 12,600 square feet, with nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The WSJ story also mentions a recent burglary at the home, in July this year, but Bradley says that didn’t contribute to Carey’s decision to put the house up for sale.
