John Fogerty, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter of Creedence Clear Water Revival rock band, has just sold his Beverly Hills mansion for $18.6 million, after dropping the price from $23 million which he asked for it nine months ago. Proud Mary rocker bought the Summitridge Drive estate for just shy of $3 million back in 2002 and made extensive renovations to it. Originally the estate spanned 13,476 square feet and featured 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms but ten years later he added another 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2,500 square feet to it.

Pink’s Spanish-style retreat re-listed after price-chop

Alecia Beth Moore alias Pink, the American singer who performed upside down at the Grammy’s Awards, is still trying to sell her mansion located on a nearly three quarters of an acre park-like flat lot south of Ventura, in Los Angeles’ Sherman Oaks neighbourhood. In 2002 she and her father, James Moore, paid $ 2 million for the property. Not having lived there quite as much as she would have hoped, she put it on the market in 2011 with a price tag of $ 4 million, yet without any success. So now she has dropped the price by half a million, who knows, maybe she’ll get lucky this time.

She included in the price of the gated estate the owner’s limited edition Rolls-Royce Phantom, with his consent, of course. The jumbo offer looks so attractive on account of the luxurious and unique quality of the components.
