Jessica Simpson Buys Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s Former Home
Jessica Simpson and husband-to-be Eric Johnson have gone into escrow on the home The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, shared with his wife Sharon. The 11,000 square foot home is located in Hidden Hills, California and was listed at $13 million. Before you go thinking that it’s going to take months of work and gallons of primer to cover the black painted interior walls, know that the home was decorated by Sharon Osbourne, who is known to have impeccable taste and enjoys things to be light and airy. However, the first renovation on the books is to convert Ozzy and Sharon’s former walk in closet to a nursery for baby number 2. The closet is said to be MASSIVE. The Cape Cod inspired house features a sweeping grand staircase, large windows, a large back yard with an expansive view of Los Angeles and naturally, a pool.

Allen Iverson’s Former Atlanta Home is a Slam Dunk
If you’re looking to score a deal on a well-built home in the Buckhead area, sometimes called the “Beverly Hills of the South”, of Atlanta then look no further. Former Philadelphia 76ers point guard Allen Iverson built this home in 2009 for $4.5 million but is currently selling it for $2.8 million after finalizing his divorce. The home manages to squeeze in 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms into 10,000 sq. ft. Neighbors on West Paces Ferry Road include Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons (and co-founder of Home Depot) and the Georgia Governor’s Mansion, currently home to Governor Nathan Deal. Not too shabby.
