Whitney Houston’s five-bedroom house in Alpharetta, Ga. is on the market for $1,349,000.
News accounts have differed on whether the troubled R&D and pop singer’s house in the Atlanta suburb, which was where the 2005 reality TV show “Being Bobby Brown” that featured her then-husband was filmed, actually was sold in a foreclosure sale in November 2006. We can straighten everyone out: Houston still owns the house, which is just north of Atlanta, and the foreclosure was not carried out, as many publications had reported in November 2006. However, that said, the 8,022-square-foot house outside Atlanta is very much available.
Houston and then-husband Bobby Brown (their divorce was finalized on April 24) paid $1,388,888 for the Alpharetta house in April 2003, according to public records. Built in 2001, the two-story house has a three-car garage and sits on a 0.6-acre lot, according to listing information. Features in the house include 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, and a balcony, according to listing information.
In New Jersey, at least a portion of Houston’s Mendham Township mansion and 10.12-acre estate on North Gate Road had been slated to be sold at a foreclosure sale after she had missed repeated mortgage payments. However, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Jan. 6 that Houston had settled up $1 million in outstanding mortgage payments. As such, she appears to be out of danger of foreclosure on either property—at least for now. We’ll keep you posted on the progress of the sale of the house in Alpharetta
