In 2018, popstar Kelly Clarkson and her now divorced husband, Brandon Blackstock, purchased their then brand-new home in Encino, California. The humble abode was bought at a price of $8.5 million and has undergone several renovations over the years. However, with Clarkson and Blackstock’s split, their real estate portfolio is experiencing some changes.
Last year, Clarkson quietly unloaded her rural Nashville retreat for $3 million. Then, earlier this year, she sold her lakefront mansion in Hendersonville, Tennessee for $6.3 million as well as purchased a vintage Toluca Lake estate for $5.4 million. Now, she is officially bidding farewell to her Encino residence after nearly a year of listing, taking down, and relisting on the market. The initial asking price was offered at just under $10 million but the sale was ultimately secured at $8.24 million.
Clarkson’s Encino home rests behind the gates of the prestigious Royal Oaks neighborhood. The property spans half an acre with 10,108 square feet and, between the main residence and the two-story guesthouse, presents a total of eight ensuite bedrooms and eight baths. Stepping inside, the home highlights formal living and dining rooms which are complimented by casual family spaces. The interior boasts an expansive great room with gourmet kitchen, billiards nook, and state-of-the art screening room. The spacious primary bedroom features a fireplace, separate seating area, private patio, and extravagant walk-in closet. Additionally, the space offers two powder rooms each with their own unique tile.
The taupe-stucco house evokes a “country” aesthetic with rustic yet luxe doorways and antique brick flooring. Teal velvet drapes offer a vibrant touch to the sweeping windows and disappear into the walls for a seamless transition outdoors. Stepping outside, the exterior space presents high hedges and dense foliage for privacy. The swimming pool is surrounded by a nearly invisible frameless-glass safety fence. For low maintenance lawn care, the landscape consists of faux grass and is perfect for entertainment with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen and pizza oven.
Chris Corkum and Lisa Brende of Compass hold the listing for this property while Craig Knizek of The Agency represented the buyer.
