Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones may be known for singing about “The Green Green Grass of Home,” but he has been living it up at his Beverly Hills home for the past two decades.
That may soon come to an end, though, as the 76-year-old singer, who has in the past expressed a desire to move back to the U.K. full-time, has just put his Los Angeles mansion up for sale for $8 million.
The “Delilah” and “Sex Bomb” singer, who has most recently been a judge on “The Voice UK” alongside the likes of Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am, paid $2.65 million for the five-bedroom 8,000-square-foot mansion in 1998, according to PropertyShark and listing records.
The peach-painted property is in the posh, gated community of Mulholland Estates and sits on over a half-acre of land and boasts impressive views of the city, according to the listing.
Features include a grand curved staircase, seven bathrooms, a wood-paneled library and a living room with fireplace that opens onto a covered loggia with seating for al fresco dining, as well as a pool and spa area.
Elsewhere, there is an entertainment room with a drop-down movie screen and a wet bar as well as a large master-suite complete with a sitting room, his and hers bathrooms, walk-in dressing rooms, steam showers, and a sauna.
Mr. Jones is famous for a song about a “pussycat” and listing pictures show that he’s certainly keen on the cat theme, with leopard print carpets throughout.
There are also matching leopard print lampshades and cushions in various rooms as well as leopard print chairs in the dining room and even paintings of leopards.
To complete the animal theme, there are several dog and giraffe statues throughout the mansion. Other quirky design features in the house include a gold four-post bed.
A spokesperson for Mr. Jones did not respond immediately to request for comment, while the listing agent, Cecelia Kennelly-Waeschle of Sotheby’s International Realty, declined to comment.
