Rock & Roll legend Ozzy Osbourne could be your new landlord! The Prince of Darkness and his firecracker wife Sharon are shifting real estate gears and offering up their stunning Hidden Hills home as a $50,000-a-month lease after trying to unsuccessfully sell the home since July 2011. While it’s still listed for sale at $12,999,000, the home just hit the high-end rental market today. The Osbournes purchased the home in the equestrian community of Hidden Hills on August 3, 2007 for $12,388,500. It clocks in at 10,953 square feet and features 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
You may not be able to understand a word Ozzy says, but you can probably glean that he and Sharon have a penchant for pricey properties. While they filmed their eponymous MTV reality show, “The Osbournes,” Sharon, Ozzy, Kelly and Jack Osbourne lived in this Beverly Hills mansion – currently owned by none other than songstress Christina Aguilera. Perhaps being “The Price of Darkness” comes with a real estate curse, because Aguilera can’t sell this ‘Osbournes’ pad either. It’s been languishing on the market since March 2011 with a $13.5M price tag.
Should you want to temporarily live like an Osbourne, let’s examine what you’ll get for $50,000 clams a month: Located within the exclusive guard-gated community of Hidden Hills, the Osbourne family home is situated on a private knoll and is a sophisticated Cape Cod-inspired estate located atop an intimate cul-de-sac. Recently featured in “Architectural Digest”, the Osbournes’ grand residence rests on 2.25 acre promontory with breathtaking city light and mountain views. Re-imagined by legendary interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, the magnificent home features the 6 bedrooms, as well as a guest apartment with kitchenette, intricately paneled study with fireplace, porte-cochere with motor court, exquisitely accented formal dining room, dramatic foyer with spiral staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows and an expansive lower level studio/home theater space.
For those of you who tuned in to ‘The Osbournes,” you’ll remember most of the action took place in the kitchen. In this home, it’s no different. A brilliant state-of-the art chef’s kitchen features Wolf appliances, a center-island and cozy breakfast nook.
The family room is highlighted by oversized sliding barn doors, a reclaimed brick fireplace and beamed vaulted ceilings. The master suite offers a sitting area, stone fireplace, wood paneled walk-in closet and an adjacent office. Expansive rear grounds include rolling lawns, a spa, barbeque island, outdoor shower, commode and several seating enclaves.
We’re not sure where the Osbourne’s will decamp to, as they sold their $7.9M Malibu home in April of this year, but no doubt they’ll move on to another fabulous estate to get some R&R after a particularly challenging year.
