Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne are ready to give up their renovated 1920s home in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, and all it will take to nab it is $18 million. Ozzy, 73, and the former The speech co-host, 69, has owned the 11,500 square foot mansion since 2015, when they bought it for $11.85million from Seen film producer Oren Koulesspeak Los Angeles Times. During their residencethe famous couple modernized the house while keeping its early 20th century charm, such as its arched wooden door, as shown in the photo below.
The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home that also includes a red cinema room hosts visitors with a lush green lawn and front patio. Three arched windows correspond to the arched wooden door, one of which is located to its left, while the other two are to its right. A Spanish-style roof gives the spacious home a typical Southern California charm.
At the back of the house is a black and white tiled patio that meets more grass. A large rectangular pool provides an escape from the Los Angeles heat, while an adjoining hot tub serves as a warm escape on cooler nights.
Inside, the Black Sabbath frontman’s house is bright and airy. A light gray living room features a white stone fireplace and is given a touch of elegance with a crystal chandelier anchoring the room. Two curved windows provide plenty of natural light while two mirrors placed on either side of the fireplace make it appear even larger than it is.
The kitchen is also white and offers floor-to-ceiling cabinetry for ample storage space. The kitchen cooking area takes up an entire wall while a curved breakfast bar takes up much of the floor space in the room.
Neither Sharon nor Ozzy has commented on their home listing, but Ozzy has hinted he is ready to return to England in March. “We are leaving LA. We are a little sad. But the tax becomes too high. I’m sad because I really like staying and living there,” Ozzy revealed to Mirror. He also explained some of the logistics behind the impending move. “I take my recording studio with me. I’m going to build a barn there and make my own studio at Welders. I will keep making music and my band will come,” he noted.
If the house sells for the asking price, it will be one of the most expensive sales the Wilshire neighborhood has ever seen. In January, the Los Angeles Times reported that the television producer Shonda Rhimes sold his home for $21 million, the highest price the affluent region has ever seen.
