Kara DioGuardi Sells Studio City Home in Los Angeles for $6.3 Million
Producer/lyricist and former "American Idol" judge, Kara DioGuardi, has sold her Studio City mansion in Los Angeles for $6.3 million. She had first listed the property for sale in September 2011 with an asking price of $10 million.
The home was offered for a monthly rental of $45000 before going up for sale. It is surprising that a house as stunning as the Studio City mansion went unclaimed so long. However, the home finally sold around 4 million lesser than the original asking price, reports Trulia.
The home comprises of 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms all spread out across an area of 7600 square feet. The place is laden with luxury amenities like an unending pool, saunas and hot tubs, a solarium and a beautiful river stone fireplace.
The home also boasts of a huge yard filled with lush green trees, ponds, decks and fountains. An art studio also adorns the place. The home is not only a sign of pure elegance but is also within walking distance from the shops and restaurants of Los Angeles, reports the Wall Street Journal.
DioGuardi and her architect husband Mike McCuddy purchased the home in 2007. It was originally built in 1923. The couple spent ample time renovating and redesigning the home. However, they decided to sell it in order to be able to spend more time with family on the east coast. They also own a home in The Hollywood Hills, reports The Los Angeles Times.
DioGuardi is an eminent hit song maker and has penned down some raging chart busters for popular singers like Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. She has appeared on T.V shows like "American Idol" and "The One: Making a Music star". She wrote songs for musical serial "Glee" and "Hannah Montana". She is also a Grammy-nominated song writer and winner of many BMI pop and country music awards.
