The 'Bossy' singer doesn't have to tell us twice to check out this Spanish-inspired pad.
It’s not just her “Milkshake” that’s bringing all the boys to the yard. Singer Kelis just listed her Glendale home for $1.885 million, and the five-bed, four-bath hacienda isn’t one to miss. Featuring a unique Spanish Revival style throughout, the stylish property in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale (which stars ranging from Nicole Richie to Jenna Fischer have called home in the past) measures 3580 square feet. Step up to the grand entry, which leads into a formal living room with a fireplace, and the family room that’s ideal for entertaining. Continue to the kitchen, one of the most fascinating rooms in the house. With stainless steel appliances, a double bright yellow stove, and black-and-white checkered floors, it’s clear that any aspiring chef would love to break out their pots and pans here. (Fun fact: Kelis is actually a trained saucier, and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu.)
Upstairs, there are two light-filled suites, including the spacious master suite that boasts vaulted ceilings, a grand fireplace, and a balcony with wraparound city views. The master bathroom is also a fascinating space, complete with dual sinks, heated floors, a steam shower, and a stunning deep bathtub with copper finishes and intricate claw feet. Don’t skip taking a look at the lively children’s bedroom, with amazing oversized murals of safari animals. Outside, a tiered backyard is studded with towering palm trees looking down on a salt-water swimming pool. Plenty of patio space and a fire pit make this guest-friendly backyard even more desirable for pool parties or barbecues. (Giving new meaning to “diamonds on my neck, diamonds on my grill.”) There’s also a studio/guest suite with a private entrance, en-suite bathroom, and beautiful contemporary interiors.
She may call herself the “chick y’all love to hate,” but we kind of love her for this unique home. And if it sells at the asking price of $1.885 million, Kelis will be pretty pleased with herself too: She bought it back in 2012 for $875,000. Cuz’ she’s a boss!
