Set on nearly two-thirds of an acre, the Mediterranean-style home has a grand foyer with a sweeping staircase, a fanciful children's room, a gym, a game room, a gift-wrapping area, a movie room, a beauty salon, a guesthouse with a recording studio, and a total of six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The master bedroom suite contains a lounge, a fireplace and dual bathrooms and closets. Outdoor entertaining areas include a pagoda and a swimming pool with a waterslide and grotto spa.
Aguilera, 30, will be a judge on NBC's upcoming singing competition show "The Voice," in which blind selections will be made solely on a contestant's audition sound. She has won Grammys for hits including "Ain't No Other Man" and "Candyman" and she starred with Cher in "Burlesque" (2010).
The property was purchased from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in 2007 for $11.5 million, according to public records.
Brooke Kaufman of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, is the listing agent.
'Not too much fuss' in Los Feliz
Actress Ashley Jensen and her husband, actor Terence Beesley, have listed their Los Feliz-area home for sale at $1,999,000.
Jensen, who is from Scotland, and Beesley, from England, have used the midcentury house to host visitors from Britain and to entertain.
"We wanted a house that we knew we were in L.A.," Jensen said. "There's an amazing view of not only the cityscape, but you can also see the sea on certain days."
The 2,404-square-foot home incorporates steel, tile and glass in a minimalist approach. "It's not too much fuss," she said. There are three bedrooms and 21/2 bathrooms.
Jensen liked living near the studios when shooting her scenes as seamstress Christina on "Ugly Betty" (2006-10). "Yet you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside and you have deer and skunks," she said. "You are in among nature, yet you can walk to the grocery, bars, restaurants and can even walk to the farmers market."
The pair put in an infinity pool that has a view of Hollywood, and Beesley designed the terrace and exterior space. "We tried to make it … David Hockney," Jensen said of the pool. "On bright shiny days it's very blue."
They are selling because they would like a house that is more toddler-friendly with a flat lawn.
Jensen was in the recently released "Gnomeo & Juliet" and is working on other animated projects while splitting her time between L.A. and London. Beesley is writing a pilot.
Public records show the property was purchased in 2007 for $1.65 million.
Jacqueline Gowers of Sotheby's International Realty, Los Feliz, is the listing agent.
