Katy Perry has tidied up some old business, selling her fortress-like compound in Hollywood Hills West for $5.565 million.
The pop singer bought the property in 2011 with her then-husband, actor Russell Brand, for $6.5 million. But the couple never moved in and was divorced in 2012.
The double-gated Mediterranean-style house, built in 1925, features an impressive baronial stone foyer with a sweeping staircase. A two-story living room, stained-glass windows, a carved fireplace mantel in the living room, a pub, a study and a media room are among other features.
Called Park Hill, the house sits on nearly 3 acres with a caretaker’s apartment/carriage house and a guesthouse. The 8,835 square feet of living space includes a four-room master suite, two guest suites and staff quarters, seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Perry, 29, released the album “Prism” last year. Among her previous albums are “One of the Boys” (2008) and “Teenage Dream” (2010), which included five No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
She is slated to perform Jan. 26 at the Grammy Awards.
