Madonna puts $28m home up for sale

Madonna is selling her Beverly Hills home for $28m.

The 'Girls Gone Wild' singer has put her French Country style mansion, purchased in 2003, on the market as a pocket listing according to blog realestalker, meaning it does not appear advertised in sales lists.

When Madonna bought the home in the upmarket Los Angeles area in 2003 it was registered as having three bedrooms and five bathrooms, but it is likely she has added to this.

Madonna is also said to have completely redecorated the 5,800 square foot property, which has 1.14 acres of land.

Other features include a tennis court and large swimming pool, and it is set at the end of a long, secluded drive.

Madonna bought the house when she was still married to her last husband, Guy Ritchie, and they paid around $12m for it.

Madonna had relocated from London to New York - where she has $32.5m town house on the Upper East Side - after her divorce from Guy in 2008, but has recently spent a lot of time in England, making her directorial debut film, 'W.E.' where she admitted she felt lonely.

She said: "When you move to a new country there's an anonymity; you can start all over again. That was refreshing when I moved to England, but then there's the feeling of being an outsider, of being lonely, of not having roots, of not quite being understood."

It is believed Madonna is either moving out of Los Angeles or downsizing so she can spend more time on the US east coast.

In the meantime, the 'Music' singer is preparing for her summer world tour in support of new album 'MDNA'.
