Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have listed their Hidden Hills estate for sale at $12,999,000.
The 2.5-acre promontory sits off a cul-de-sac in the gated community. The Cape Cod-inspired mansion, built in 2001 and featured in the June issue of Architectural Digest, may not be what one might expect from the couple. The house has a paneled study with fireplace, a home theater and studio area, six en suite bedrooms and a guest apartment with kitchenette. The family room of the 11,000-square-foot home has sliding barn doors and a reclaimed brick fireplace.
Sharon Osbourne, 58, is a judge on "America's Got Talent" (2007-present) and a co-host on "The Talk" (2010-present). She also is the manager of Ozzy, 62, formerly lead singer of Black Sabbath before launching his solo career. He has sold more than 100 million albums over four decades and will be on tour again in Europe next month.
They have owned the property since 2007, when they bought it for $12,388,500. That's just long enough for Sharon Osbourne to have thoughts of moving again.
"I get itchy feet," she said in the AD interview. "We've never stayed in any place longer than seven years."
The couple also have a Malibu beach house for sale at $9.5 million.
Tomer Fridman of Ewing & Associates Sothebys, Calabasas, is the listing agent for the Hidden Hills property, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
Sally's field finds a buyer
Oscar-winning actress Sally Field has sold her Malibu house for $5.65 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.
The two-story ranch-style home sits on 3 acres with separate guest quarters, a pool, a lighted tennis court, a three-stall horse paddock and access to nearby riding trails on more than 2,000 acres of park land. The main home was built in 1958 and had been owned by Olivia Newton-John. Five bedrooms and six bathrooms lie within nearly 6,000 square feet of living space.
Since she starred on the '60s TV series "Gidget" and "The Flying Nun," Field, 64, has made a name for herself on the big screen too in such films "Forrest Gump" (1994), "Places in the Heart" (1984) and "Norma Rae" (1979). She played the matriarch in the recently canceled "Brothers & Sisters" (2006-present) and will play Mary Todd Lincoln in the Steven Spielberg-directed film "Lincoln," to be released next year.
Field bought the property in 2004 for $4,822,500.
Douglas E. Carroll of Prudential Malibu Realty and David Offer of Prudential Brentwood were the listing agents, according to the MLS.
