After more than 16 years in the neighborhood, Tinseltown businesswoman and TV personality Tracey Edmonds has publicly slapped a $10 million pricetag on her lavish mansion in the guard-gated Mullholland Estates community. The listing, which makes no secret of the home’s celebrity ownership, indicates the liberally embelished 1990s French Chateau-style house has more than 8,200 square feet of living space, with five bedrooms and six baths.
The manse also sports a notable celebrity pedigree. John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame bought the spread way back in 2000 for $3.5 million, selling it to Tracey and her record producer then-husband Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds in 2004 for $5.15 million. The pair divorced the following year, with Babyface moving out and Tracey retaining ovwnership of the property.
Separated from the private road by a notably ornate iron gate and a motorcourt, the house sits on a roomy half-acre lot and offers a pale, stone-clad façade that pairs neatly with its gray-shingled roof. Beyond hulking double front doors, there’s a grand foyer with a curvy staircase and a Louis XIV-style chandelier dangling from the ceiling. Recessed lights, hardwood flooring, dramatic arched doorways and a distinctly rococco interior décor can be found throughout the structure.
On the main floor, the living room is configured around a fireplace framed by a regal mantle. Just beyond that is the dining room, characterized by two pendant chandeliers and a series of windows that overlook into the picturesque backyard. There’s also a colossal kitchen decked out with top-of-the-line stainless appliances, a sophisticated alkaline water filtration system, and custom marble countertops. But for more intellectual pursuits, head to the wood-paneled library, where the ivory-colored carpeting adds to its cozy atmosphere.
Upstairs, the master suite is unabashedly hedonistic. The bedroom has a separate sitting area with a double-sided fireplace, direct access to a private patio, and a spa-style bathroom with a marble soaking tub and dual vanities. The master overlooks the backyard, which is ringed by a towering hedgerow for maximum privacy but still sports birds-eye views of the San Fernando Valley basin. There’s also an oversized pool and spa, a built-in BBQ grill, covered al fresco dining area and firepit.
