Actress Brittany Murphy tragically died in 2009, but the Hollywood Hills home where she (and five months later husband Simon Monjack) passed away sat on the market until 2011. Brittany purchased the Mediterranean five-bedroom, five-bath home from singer Britney Spears in 2003 for $3.85 million, and — after some anguish — Brittany's mother was finally able to offload the property in 2011 for a loss at $2.7 million.
Thereafter, what was a Mediterranean was torn down to the studs and rebuilt as a bigger, modern home, with a brand-new price tag to match: $18.4 million. The relisted 9,400-square-foot home features a grand marble entrance, soaring ceilings, and walnut floors and paneling. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliders highlight near-unobstructed city views, and rooms open completely to outdoor spaces, epitomizing an indoor-outdoor California lifestyle. The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, and there's even an elevator to take residents directly from the garage to the master bedroom. If that's not luxurious enough, the new owner will enjoy a home theater, wine cellar, massage room, and infinity pool with spa. Tour the entire home in the video below, and then look through the slideshow to see the rooms in detail.
