Back in summer 2011, newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand dropped $6.5M on a cavernous compound in Los Angeles, complete with coffered ceilings, huge fireplaces, and a stone-walled foyer. Ever since the couple's divorce last year, pop princess and "Teenage Dream" Perry has been trying to sell the house as a pocket listing; that is, without hulking all 8,835 square feet of faux Mediterranean manse into the realm of public mastication. Ah, but sometimes a
gurl girl's got to do what a girl's got to do, and having failed to find a buyer willing to fork out the near $8M she was hoping for, Perry has finally officially listed the place for $6.95M, offering a glimpse into the overwrought Spanish spread she never got around to actually living in.
OK, so besides being able to say that Katy Perry once owned it, what does the buyer get for nearly $7M in SoCal? A grotto-style pool, for one, as well as a murmuring brook, a Japanese-style bridge and garden, a guest house, and interiors that look like somebody really wanted this seven-bedroom house to be a medieval castle: stained glass, stone walls, carved mantles, and all. Do have a look, above.
