The 7,400-square-foot Mediterranean-esque mansion that Britney Spears once called home has been listed for sale. As was first reported by The Real Estalker, Spears lived in the five-bedroom villa, located in the ultra-exclusive Beverly Hills gate-guarded community of The Summit, for a couple of years in the late aughts, a period marked by widely publicized public meltdowns. Remarkably, the interiors are downright muted and dreary (way more so than the bright, garish Los Angeles Tudor that Spears bought for herself last February), with faux finishes, painted murals, stone flooring, and old-fashioned fabrics, all in a beige-blah palette. The pop star bought the place for $6.75M in Jan. 2007 and capriciously listed it for $7.8M in Sept. 2008; after floating on and off the market too many times to count it was most recently listed at $4.8M before plunging to its current and far-below-value ask: $2.995M.
