Jessica Simpson Lists Southern California Home – Rob Report
Canon Schmidt/Saline Shutters
Back in the spring of 2013, just over a year before she married former NFL player Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson paid Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne $11.5 million for roughly 2.5 acres in the guarded Hidden Hills community. Now, the pop star-turned-billion-dollar fashion mogul is ready to give up the place she owned just over a decade ago, asking for $22 million.
The impending sale may be due to one little thing she said hustle earlier this summer. According to the online women’s magazine, Simpson says she is considering moving to Nashville to relaunch her music career.
The 43-year-old Texas native bought the lavish digs from the Osbornes for $11.5 million shortly before her 2014 marriage to Johnson, with the couple extensively remodeling and expanding the building during their tenure. As for the Osbournes, the reality show stars paid nearly $12.4 million to purchase the home in 2007, then underwent a Martin Lawrence-Pollard-designed renovation that appeared on the pages of architectural digest.
Built in 2001 behind a gated driveway and accessed via a secluded cul-de-sac, the sprawling Cape Cod-inspired building houses eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms in just over 13,200 square feet of multi-level living space presented by a double-height foyer showcasing a spiral staircase. Surrounded by towering glass walls.
From there, the gourmet kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the-line Wolf appliances, a center island, walk-in pantry, and an accompanying breakfast nook, and oversized sliding barn doors lead to an adjoining family room that rests under a sporty, wood-beamed vaulted ceiling. Fireplace made of reclaimed brick.
Elsewhere is a fireplace-side living room, formal dining room, wood-panelled study, recording studio and gymnasium, plus a lavish master retreat adorned with a stone fireplace, private porch, sitting area, dual wardrobes, and luxurious bathroom outfitted with a soaking tub and steam shower. .
Outdoors, the resort-like grounds overlook breathtaking city lights and mountain views, and host a herb garden, swimming pool with spa, separate shallow pool, and many more spots ideal for relaxation and outdoor entertainment. There is also a garage for four cars and a guest house with its own kitchenette.
The listing is owned by Brett Harrison of Coldwell Banker Realty.
