There has been some chatter of late has been that Britney Spears is looking at--and may already have bought--a house in Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades neighborhood. And the rumor that we've heard is that Britney has zeroed in on this gated house here, at 16829 Monte Hermoso Drive in Pacific Palisades, which has been listed for $6,550,000. Built in 1992, the three-story, 8,370-square-foot, Mediterranean-style house on 3.11 acres has no shortage of celebrity pedigree, having been owned by actor Ray Liotta from 1995, when his XYZ Trust paid $2,250,000 for it, until 2003, when he sold it. The five-bedroom house is constructed around a central courtyard with a pool, and has landscaping with waterfalls, koi ponds and fruit trees. Indoors are eight baths, a gourmet kitchen, new flooring, and a master suite with two marble baths and custom fitted closets, according to listing information. Public records don't yet show that a sale has taken place, and in fact, the home has remained active in the multiple listing service, where you can see the listing here and here. We don't often print rumors, but the chatter clearly is heightening, with our always-thorough friends over at the Real Estalker having written a post on the Pacific Palisades rumors yesterday, and with us getting our own flow of tips on the subject. (The Real Estalker also noted that that Britney's 9,130-square-foot Malibu home, which is on the market, has been sold, while her Beverly Hills mansion. We--and no doubt legions of other celebrity journalists--will keep you posted on where Britney winds up. Thanks in particular to G., our source in West Hollywood, for some of the most recent details.
