Britney Spears’ Beverly Hills home listed for “probate” sale

The Beverly Hills home where Britney Spears lived when she had her infamous meltdown and was carted away to the mental hospital is once again up or sale. The 7,453 square foot Mediterranean-style home located in the gated community of The Summit has been on and off the market since Ms. Spears purchased it in 2007 for nearly $7 million. Neighbors will surely not be happy that Ms. Spears’ father and conservator, Jamie Spears, has the home listed for only $2.995 million. Here is a description of the property located at 12094 Summit Circle, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, according to the listing agents, The Sanborn Team, who are probate and trust real estate specialists with Prudential California Realty in Beverly Hills:

“Exquisite Mediterranean villa in the prestigious 24 hour gated Summit. Property features five bedrooms and six baths plus a maid’s quarter. Warm and inviting master suite offers his and hers baths, fireplace & romantic loggia. Fabulous kitchen with Viking appliances, walk-in pantry & large breakfast nook open to spacious family room. Ultimate indoor/outdoor lifestyle with all downstairs rooms opening to backyard with pool & spa, lushly landscaped and completely private. This exceptional property is gated with a three car garage. Probate Sale. Court Confirmation Required.”

For those of you who have not been keeping track of Ms. Spears’ comings and goings, in 2008 her father was appointed to serve as her “conservator,” meaning that the pop tart was not fit to manage her finances and so someone else needed to step in and take control. So that is why the house is listed as a “probate sale” – not because someone has died, but because Jamie Spears will need to obtain court approval from the probate judge overseeing Ms. Spears’ conservatorship before any sale can be completed – in many states “probate” judges also oversee conservatorships and guardianships.

When describing the home, Ann Brenoff of Huffington Post Los Angeles stated: “For our two-cents, the cookie cutter was here and this is just one more McMansion.” Ouch.
