Mariah Carey’s Atlanta home is for sale, so we shopped around

If there’s anyone who owns a Fantasy of a House, of course, it would be Songbird Supreme herself, Mariah Carey.

But, for once (or at least since the days of MTV shows Cradles) we just have to imagine in what luxury lives this diva. Her Atlanta, Georgia home is currently up for sale, giving us the perfect opportunity to poke around a bit.

The nine (yes, nine) bedroom home is listed at $6.5m (nearly £5.6m) and has just about every amenity one could hope for, from the tennis court to the gym, from the movie theater to the check-in area.

Inside Mariah Carey’s house in Atlanta

The detached, gated house (obviously – can’t see Mariah chatting over the garden fence on a patio) is set on a private hillside on 4 acres of land and 12,575 square feet of interior space.

The exterior shows classic Southern architecture, with red brick walls and traditional white columns.

The glamor starts right away with this property with grand hallways and chandeliers galore. All around there are handcrafted details like crown molding, coffered ceilings and arched doorways.

The dream kitchen is at the center of the house, perfect for cooking or, presumably, sipping champagne in a ball gown.

The ginormous marble island is a showtopper, but it’s also got all the high-end appliances you could want and a lovely breakfast nook (yes, topped with a chandelier).

The large main living room is somewhat of a Heartbreaker. Who wouldn’t want to lie here and gaze out over the wall of French doors to the pristine grounds beyond? Or, you know, just use acoustics to practice the whistle note. Whether or.

This floor also offers a state-of-the-art home theater, gym, private guest suite, and access to a large outdoor entertainment area.

Fit for a true diva, the first floor master suite has everything we could want and more. And as well as the bedroom itself, there’s a walk-in closet, private balcony, morning bar (neither do we), fireplace, wardrobes and bathroom.

The master bathroom is one of nine full bathrooms and four half baths, and it’s definitely our favorite. The mirrors reflecting the chandelier make the space even more glamorous.

We’d say it’s a perfect place to put your makeup on but, come on. It’s Mariah. She does not wear makeup in the bathroom.

Oh the glamorous bedroom. I’m pretty sure We Belong Together. It’s a girl’s paradise, with pink walls, a lounge chair, and the obligatory Old Hollywood lighted mirror. Plus, there’s plenty of floor space for the glamorous team to get to work without getting in the way.

Climb to another level and you can find a check-in booth in case you get inspired, as well as more spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.

The exterior is as glamorous and extra as the interior. There is a heated swimming pool, tennis court, several gardens and a three car garage. Plus, there’s more than enough room to throw parties galore and host all your A-lister friends.

To top it off, there’s also a pool house and entertainment pavilion so, really, you have no choice but to be the host with the most (literally, on this occasion).

Now if only we could see what it looks like during the holidays. That’s all I want for Christmas, anyway.
