Following a burglary in late June, the 53-year-old Grammy Award winner put her nine-bedroom, 13-bathroom mansion up for sale in Sandy Springs, Georgia for $6.5 million. Shanna Bradley of Christie’s International owns the list.
The 1951 home is in a gated community on the outskirts of Atlanta, and it sits on a 4.2-acre hilltop and is fenced around for privacy. The three-car garage, which forms part of the house’s circular driveway, is complemented by the brick exterior, white columns and typical Southern architecture of the house designed by Stephen Fuller.
French doors leading to the backyard let in plenty of sunlight into the living room. The entire mansion is richly decorated, such as crown moldings, mills, vaulted ceilings and vaulted doors.
The kitchen is the focal point of the home and features a large marble island, custom cabinets, bright breakfast nook and high-end appliances.
The master bedroom is huge, and it features a private balcony, fireplace, built-in shelving, morning bar, deluxe bathroom, dressing area, and large closet with shelving and separate storage.
On the large terrace, there is a separate seating area and fireplace for guest use. It features a studio, home cinema, gym, tennis court, large entertainment pavilion, multiple gardens and a heated underground swimming pool.
Police documents obtained by PEOPLE show Kenzel Walker, 27, committed a burglary at the Carey mansion in late June. The report states that the thief entered the mansion by opening a door in the backyard.
It is not clear if Walker filed a defense or hired an attorney to speak on his behalf at the time. In 2017, TMZ reported that Carey’s Los Angeles home was broken into again, this time resulting in the loss of $50,000 worth of bags and sunglasses.
