Kelly Clarkson is ready for a change! Amid her current divorce from ex Brandon Blackstock, she’s dropped $5.4 million on an estate in Toluca Lake that is sure to bring new energy to the vibrant talk show host’s life. Los Angelenos know that this neighborhood is one of the most exclusive in the San Fernando Valley with its private lake and golf course and old-school Hollywood history. (Think Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Bette Davis!) She and daughter River Rose, 7, and son Remington Alexander, 5, are going to love the amenities this property has to offer.
With her Encino mansion from the marriage still on the market for $8.9 million, Clarkson likely fell for the charming feel of a vintage LA home built in 1936, and renovated in 2018. It has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread over 4,946 square feet on an estate with a sprawling backyard that kids will use every day in the California sunshine. From the small details like the pavilion next to the tennis court or the unexpected doorways to the patios and lush grass, the family has so many unique places to explore on the grounds.
We can’t wait for you to see the sunroom (it’s the most unusual place in the house) and of course, the movie star pool. Scroll through the gallery and be sure to check out more photos on Dirt.
Toluca Lake Living
The beauty of this home is in the small details — a majestic gate leads right up to a circular driveway with a bubbling fountain in the middle to greet you.
An Old-Fashioned Driveway
It’s not often you see a brick motor court anymore! There’s also a detached three-car garage on the property to store all of the kids’ bikes and sporting equipment.
Belly Up to the Kitchen Bar
The kitchen will be the focal point of the home — plenty of high-end appliances to utilize, but the Clarkson will relish in the memories of chatting with her kids at the center island bar.
The Perfect Family Room
A fireplace and lounge to nap on or head over to the conversational couch area to read a book or chat with friends — the design of this room is multi-functional and well laid-out.
Formal Dining Room
What makes this formal dining room less stuffy is that fact that it gets a lot of natural sunlight and a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the fresh air with the French doors leading to the backyard.
The Most Unusual Room in the House
This is designated as a sunroom with all of the glass surrounding it, but it looks like it was utilized as a playroom for the previous owners.
A Cozy Master Bedroom Suite
The clean lines of this room make it the perfect place for Clarkson to rest her head after a long day at work. (The fireplace is also a nice touch!)
The sunken tub and double vanity space make the bathroom its own oasis.
Tennis courts are quite common on the Toluca Lake properties, but we love the pavilion for lounging and relaxing after a touch match on the court.
Now This Is an Estate
This is an old Hollywood pool with fountains of running water, lounge chairs on the brick deck and a pool house for snacks and drinks.
