Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's former home on the outskirts of Atlanta is on the market for $1.9 million.
The 0.6-acre, 5-bedroom property is located in the 'Country Club of the South' – a gated community in Georgia. Its enviable postcode and stunning architectural features make the home one of the most interesting listings in the state and one of the world's best homes.
New Jersey native Whitney Houston is one of the bestselling music artists of all time, with sales of over 200 million records globally. Her accolades include 2 Emmy Awards, and 6 Grammy Awards, to name but a few. Whitney died in Beverly Hills, California, on February 11th, 2012.
The singer lived in the Alpharetta mansion with her ex-husband, Bobby Brown, between 2003 to 2007, according to Realtor (opens in new tab). While residing in the home, the celebrity couple filmed the reality TV show Being Bobby Brown which was shown on Bravo in 2005.
With its intricately-designed façade and lush front lawn (with instant curb appeal), it's easy to understand why the late singer was so attracted to the property. However, its assets continue inside the home, which is an immediate source of decorating ideas and design inspiration.
The main living room is arguably the most impressive of these spaces – featuring a vaulted ceiling and large windows that fill the lounge area with natural sunlight. The room exhibits bespoke shelving that is built into the wall and large, flowing houseplants that continue to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
Beyond the living room, the chef's kitchen continues to set the standard for luxury living with its industry-quality appliances, the wine and coffee bar, and a uniquely shaped breakfast nook.
Beyond the winding staircase, there are 4 of the five bedrooms, a spacious closet, and a viewing terrace that overlooks the verdant woodland surrounding the country club. The primary suite also features a private coffee bar and an en-suite with a soaking tub. There is also a gym and a games room that could be renovated into a home office, depending on the buyer's desires.
Unsurprisingly, the garden ideas are equally as therapeutic, boasting a large swimming pool (plus a separate bathing pool) and an al-fresco dining space that is spacious enough for entertaining a large group of guests.
Keller Williams Realty (opens in new tab) currently holds the listing.
