After divorcing Nick Lachey in 2005, 33-year-old singer Jessica Simpson purchased this incredible Beverly Hills estate for a little over $5 million and has just sold it for a little less than 6.5 million. It brought her a profit, although it was a hard sell. After her new family – fiancé Eric Johnson, toddler daughter Maxwell and son Ace Knute moved into Sharon and Ozzie Osbourne’s Hidden Hills retreat.
Situated in Hidden Valley, this custom-built luxury mansion described in the listing as “one of the most private guarded celebrity enclaves,” was completed 12 years ago, Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture having contributed to some of its interior design, which gave it a feminine and light touch with its ebonized hardwood floors, crown moldings and high ceilings. The five-bedroom, 5.5 residence spans over 5,500 square feet and boasts a caterer’s chef’s kitchen, a stone courtyard leading to a koi pond and an over-sized master suite, which features a sitting area with French windows opening to an expansive deck overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds with a swimming pool. Her toddler daughter’s room features pink decorations, floral wallpaper and a crib. Also wor
