Before it came (and lingered on the market), Madonna’s posh pad had long been rumored to be a “pocket listing”–not officially on the MLS, but still for sale–for $28 million, but since the price wasn’t in ‘Vogue’ with buyers, Madonna was forced to try the public market at a lower price.
After about 10 months on the market, Madonna has finally sold for $20 million – a nice profit of $8 million dollars more than the $12 million she paid in June 2003, when she bought the home from actress Sela Ward. ‘Take a Bow,’ Madonna – nice work!
The whole time the home was on the market, only a single image showing the home’s ‘Borderline’ was available, so we never got to peep the interiors. We do know Madonna’s just-sold property starts with a 500-foot, gated, tree-lined drive that leads to an acre and a quarter of lushly landscaped grounds, offering total privacy for residents to ‘express themselves.’
The recently remodeled house has all the finest details and amenities: nine bedrooms, two living/reception rooms, a two-story dining room, junior dining room, large kitchen with breakfast room/den, and a full size screening room and theater. As if that weren’t enough space to ‘Cherish,’ the property also has two offices, assistants offices, a gym, staff rooms, two guest houses, a north/south tennis court, and a resort-size pool. No detail was overlooked and no expense spared in maintaining the house meticulously. It’s clear, by taking one look at her former home, that Madonna is a ‘Material Girl.’
Madonna is no property ‘Virgin,’ as she also has homes in New York and London.
