Britney Spears (Pop-tart Princess) has received the “A-OK” from the L.A. County Court Commissioner to put her mansion on the market. Being that Britney is a “few fries short of a Happy Meal these days” and her dad Jaime Spears is in charge of her finances, Britney and Poppa Spears had to get court permission for them to list the house. Ms. Spear’s home is located in the very posh gated community of “The Summit” it has 6 bedrooms and 6 full and one half baths. Her neighbors claim that the presence of the paparazzi outside of the community’s gates is the reason why her neighbor Ed McMahon has not received a single offer on his home. God knows he has “Real Estate Troubles” of his own! Surely he does not need the “Spears Crazy Train” to add to the mess he’s going through.
Lenny Dykstra (Baseball Outfielder) is selling his Lake Sherwood estate located behind the gates of Sherwood Country Club for $24,900,000!!! The house is said to be 12,360 square feet, has 8 bedrooms and 7.5 baths, situated on 7+/- acres. Apparently, Dykstra did not amass that entire pile of money playing outfield for the Mets & the Phillies. Mr. Dykstra became somewhat of “Stock Market Genius”, author, and motivational speaker after he retired from baseball at the age of 35. Go figure. He purchased the home from Ice Hockey great Wayne Gretzky in August 2007 for $18,500,000 and looks like the Dykstras have changed their mind and are ready to move less than a year later.
In New York City, Heather Mills (Famous for once being married to a Beetle)has just purchased a $5,000,000 West Village apartment. Thanks a lot to Sir Paul McCartney’s hefty divorce settlement! Carly Simon (Singer) also listed her West Village duplex for $3,800,000 and thinks nobody will sell it better than her sister Joanna Simon, Broker/Vice President of Fox Residential Group. Finally, Rachel Ray (Celebrity Chef) and husband John Cusimano have closed on their 6.2 acre compound in Southampton for $2,900,000.
