Whitney Houston quietly sells 8,022-square-foot Alpharetta, GA house for $1.19M

Whitney Houston has quietly sold her five-bedroom, 8,022-square-foot house in Alpharetta, Ga. for $1,190,000, just months after it was headed for foreclosure.

In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale by Houston of the house at 1014 Tullamore Place in Alpharetta, which the diva purchased in 2003 for $1,388,888.

Back on May 4, we wrote about the house being on the market for $1,349,000. We also addressed and debunked published rumors that the house, where her then-husband's 2005 reality TV show "Being Bobby Brown" was filmed, had been sold in a foreclosure sale in November 2006.

Now, public records show that Houston sold the house at a loss on May 4, which was the same day as our blog post and just days after the singer and Brown finalized their divorce. As such, it's pretty clear that the house was awarded to Whitney in the divorce. The sale was recorded on May 14, according to public records.

Built in 2001, the two-story house in Alpharetta, which is just outside Atlanta, has seven baths, a master suite on the main level with a morning bar, a keeping room overlooking the kitchen with a wet bar, a breakfast nook, a breakfast bar, a full finished terrace level, a billiard room, a circular driveway, a balcony and a three-car garage, all on a 0.6-acre lot, according to public records and listing information.

The buyer is a man who is not a celebrity.

In what could be interpreted as an early sign of her cash flow problems, Houston put her $2.5m mansion on the market in late-2009, a year after selling another property for $1.2 million. [...]
