Kardashians drop $47m on Britney’s old home

A $47 million property that was once home to Britney Spears is saying "Hit me baby one more time" - this time, to the Kardashian family.

Khloé Kardashian and Kris Jenner have purchased neighbouring lots for custom homes in Hidden Hills, the upscale LA enclave where they and their famous friends have settled in recent years.

It wasn't clear how much the mum and-daughter duo paid for the valuable real estate, where Spears' home once stood before being demolished.

But now, Realtor records show that they dropped a combined $47.1 (US$37M) for the 3.4-acre property near the edge of the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in late December.

Khloé paid $21.7 million (US$17M) for a 1.86-acre lot on the same date her mum/manager purchased a $25.5 million (US$20M), 1.53-acre corner lot next door, The Post reports.

They purchased it from an LLC registered to a small development company called Metro Development Homes, records show.

Reportedly $36.1 million (US$28.3M) of that cash is going directly to construction and development costs, since the land is assessed at (and was listed for) less than $11.5 million (US$9M).

What could the houses possibly include to cost that much?

Jenner's house is 1535 sq m, with eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and every conceivable amenity - an eight-car garage, covered patios, guesthouse, movie theatre, gym, lounge, office and a pool with inset spa.

While we can't see inside her home (yet), Metro Development Homes recently completed some equally expensive homes nearby that closely resemble the specifications of Kris' house.

A Jed Smith Road mansion completed in 2016 has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 1,300 sq m with marble floors, a cinema, a sauna, a wine cellar, a pizza oven and a recording studio.

Meanwhile, Khloé's house, which she reportedly purchased with her boyfriend, NBA star Tristan Thomas, clocks in around 930 sq m, but not much else is known about it, according to Variety.

Both properties have over-size swimming pools with cabanas, pictured show and are designed in the modern farmhouse architectural style, according to Variety.

The Kardashians aren't the first celebs to grace the lot - with Britney Spears renting the former home on the property in 2011 and 2012 for $25,000 a month, according to the LA Times.

It was demolished after the former owner, "Million Dollar Listing" star Tracy Tutor's father, Ron Tutor, sold the house in 2012.

The lot has stood empty ever since and landed in the hands of the now-defunct Ponzi scheme the Woodbridge Group, before being sold to Metro Development.
