“What I’m selling is an heirloom, a piece of history, memories,” said listing agent Yvonne Hulsey of Keller Williams Real Estate Services. “It’s definitely not the square footage I’m selling.”
“Someone might want to have a piece of Britney Spears and her life, and where it all started in that dance studio,” Hulsey said. “She taught aerobics there when she was 12, and started dancing when she was 2. It’s just a beautiful piece of history.”
Set on approximately two acres, the residence has 2,300 square feet of living space, including a wood-paneled living room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Besides this dance studio, it also contains many of the house’s original furnishings, “preserving the essence of the famous singer’s early years,” according to the listing.
There are stickers of the pop star’s name on a mirror — which is joined by an ‘N Sync sticker, dating from a year before Spears started dating the band’s lead singer, Justin Timberlake — and artwork the “Gimme More” singer drew when she was young,” he said. Hulse.
There’s even the phrase “Christina is bad for British grammar” written on the door, a reference to the supposed rivalry between Spears and fellow pop star Christina Aguilera.
The next conservator of the house could easily be “someone who adores Britney and wants to turn the property into a museum or something,” Hulsey said. “This is my idea.”
The 41-year-old singer, best known for hits like “Toxic,” “Oops!…I Did It Again” and “Womanizer,” was released from a 13-year conservatorship at the end of 2021, which is among her restrictions. Others, had their financial and medical freedoms restricted.
Earlier this year, she sold a home in Los Angeles for $10.1 million cash, less than the $12 million she had been quietly shopping around for and the $11.8 million she paid for it less than a year ago.
She reportedly moved out of the house shortly after moving in, mainly because the house was too exposed.
A representative for the Grammy winner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
TMZ first reported the list.
