Kelly Clarkson unloads Encino farmhouse for $ 8.24 million

The sales frenzy for Kelly Clarkson continues. Months after selling their 20,000-square-foot mega-mansion in Tennessee for $ 6.3 million, the American Idol alien raised $ 8.24 million for their Encino farmhouse.

It’s a slight loss to the singer, who paid $ 8.5 million for the property in 2018. She’s been buying the house since last year and most recently listed it for $ 9 million.

Clarkson is still rooted in the San Fernando Valley. Over the summer, she decided to move into a smaller home and spent $ 5.445 million on a 5,000-square-foot colonial-style property a few miles east on Toluca Lake.

With more than 10,000 square meters, the house that has just been sold is about twice as large with eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a cinema, a billiard room, a fitness room and a wine cellar on two floors. The property spans half an acre in the Royal Oaks neighborhood, adding a two story guest house and leafy back yard with a pool, spa, lawn, fire pit, and covered lounge with pizza oven.

Stone and multi-colored lumber give the L-shaped property a farmhouse feel that opens up to modern spaces with designer fixtures, chic fireplaces, and an ornate kitchen with three islands and two dishwashers. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a private terrace and lounge.

Clarkson, 39, became a star in 2002 when she won the first season of the American Idol singing contest series. Since then she has released eight studio albums, including the Grammy-winning albums “Breakaway” and “Stronger”. In 2019, she began hosting a daytime talk show called “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” which won six Daytime Emmy Awards in three seasons.

Chris Corkum and Lisa Brende from Compass kept the listing. Craig Knizek from the agency represented the buyer.
