From the Star Ledger:
Whitney Houston has put the 5-acre Mendham estate where she married singer Bobby Brown on the market for $2.5 million, far less than its assessed value of $5.6 million.
The 12,561-square-foot home, which she bought in 1987 for $2.7 million, is described in its listing as modern, full of natural light, with three fireplaces, walk-in closets, a bar (uh-oh), floor-to-ceiling windows, and a four-car garage. The (quite frankly rather dated-looking, and we’re not the only ones who think so) home has Frank Lloyd Wright-style stained glass in the entry, an enormous kitchen, and what appears to be a custom-made bed in the center of the master bedroom.
From the Examiner:
Whitney Houston’s “Crack is Whack” house is on the market. The Grammy winner is asking $2.5 million for the Mendham Township, NJ house. While she commuted back and forth between this mansion and the house in Georgia, the reality show Being Bobby Brown was filmed for Bravo.
During this time, while Whitney Houston’s handlers were denying she was doing crack, she told Diane Sawyer…
This is the home where she married Bobby Brown in 1992. Whitney Houston has the mansion listed for $2.5 million. That’s less than half its $5.6 million assessed value.
Whitney Houston has put her multi-million dollar New Jersey home where she married Bobby Brown on the market for $2.5 mlllion.
The couple got hitched at the $5.6 million dollar home in Mendham in 1992 and then separated in 2007.
The real estate website describes the residence as a modern-styled home full of natural light and containing “circular-themed interior spaces,” as well as four-car garage, three fireplaces, walk-in closets, a bar, skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Houston nearly lost the home in 2006 after Mendham tax officials claim the 46-year-old singer and former reality star failed to pay taxes for four straight quarters and ignored delinquent notices.
