When Rihanna sold her home last year, it wasn’t because she had grown tired of it or was looking for something bigger. The R&B diva was in the middle of several lawsuits, which claimed that her new modern pad was poorly constructed, resulting in water damage.
Listed as a short sale for $4.5 million in November 2011, the home at 9152 Janice Pl, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 sold just a month later for $5.03 million. Apparently the new owner saw an opportunity when he looked at the property; a year later, the renovated home is back on the market for $9.95 million.
The listing speaks to Rihanna’s previous ownership, stating that the home was “tailor-made for an A-list celebrity.” Secluded and gated, the Beverly Glen-area home sits on a promenade with views of the Los Angeles skyline below.
Boasting an open floor plan perfect for any entertainer, the 8,500-square-foot home has 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a custom kitchen with top-of-the-line finishes and a tiered home theater. The master suite, described as “rocker chic,” has a suede-papered closet. Outside, the home includes a pool and spa.
The home is listed by Joe Babajian of Rodeo Realty.
