Jessica Simpson Lists Beverly Hills Home for $8 Million (House of the Day)
By Catherine Sherman
When Jessica Simpson bought Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's former Hidden Hills mansion in March, she was in full mom mode, making space for 9-month-old daughter Maxwell and baby No. 2. Now with her summer due date fast approaching, Simpson is saying goodbye to her Beverly Hills bachelorette pad for good. The "Fashion Star" judge just listed her longtime residence for $7.995 million.
Custom-built in the early '90s by award-winning L.A. designer Kerry Joyce, the 5,500-square-foot home is located in a private celebrity enclave with a gated entrance and vine-covered exterior. Simpson has owned the five-bedroom property since 2005, when she bought it for $5.275 million following her separation from then-husband Nick Lachey.
"Ebonized hardwood floors and fabulous crown and [base moldings] throughout are just some of the quality details in this romantically emotional home," real estate agent Jory Burton of Sotheby's International Realty wrote in the listing description. And Simpson isn't the only celebrity with an emotional attachment to the place. According to Burton, Ellen DeGeneres, "Crocodile Dundee" star Paul Hogan and Hollywood manager Rick Yorn have also lived there.
Recently renovated by Rachel Ashwell of Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture, the interior is Hamptons shabby chic with white-washed fabrics and rich hardwoods. Touches of glam are also evident in the home, with antique chandeliers in nearly every room. While Simpson now has a private veranda and ginormous swimming pool to enjoy in Hidden Hills, her Beverly Hills property provided her own secret garden. Spanning a third of an acre, its park-like grounds display lush landscaping and a secluded swimming pool. An eat-in kitchen also overlooks a stone courtyard with a serene koi pond.
